New York Daily News – Washington Redskins

September 4, 2014 § Leave a comment

September 4, 2014, We clearly disagree with the NY Daily News decision (link below) to no longer refer to Washington Redskins as the Redskins, but the article that explains their decision is thoughtful. They don’t ignore all of the good sentiments that many North American Indians themselves associate with the name and logo, they just, it seems, decided that negative perceptions outweighed the good.

Such a shame; if the media would just focus more on the good than the negative – and that goes for everything not just this NFL Redskins issue – more people would have understood how valuable North American Indian contributions to core of USA culture have been and continue to be. Lost opportunity.
