I don't fine it racists, personally BUT if it is to the American Indian then I would change it. ThisRead More is why I would never vote for the Pee Party people like Ayatollah Snyder. Some of the filthy rich will never change their minds even when wrong.

It's easy to jump on a band wagon but one should look at the genesis of the name. It was started byRead More the American Indian to distinguish him from the white man. There was absolutely nothing racist about it. The fact that some now want to give it a racist connotation should not force Washington to change their nickname. It's interesting that this name began when the team was in Boston & Boston had another team with an Indian name - the Braves, a baseball team. Although there are virtually no pure bred American Indians left in the USA I look upon the name Redskins and think of a fierce warrior which I believe was the intent when the team was named.
