Here is NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's letter to the Congressional Native American Caucus supporting the status quo vis-a-vis the renaming of the Washington Redskins. Many consider the term 'redskin' racist, analogous to calling an African-American 'nigger' or an Italian-American 'dago'.
Racist? C'mon, man!
Goodell forgot to mention that the owner of the team at the time of the name designation was George Preston Marshall, one of the NFL's most notorious racists who refused to sign an African-American player until 1962, when he was forced to.
Way to go, Roger! Your father would be so proud of your principled stance.
