Washington Post- Two members of Congress have written a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell urging Goodell and the league “to take a formal position in support of a name change” by the Washington Redskins. The letter by Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) is to be sent Monday to Goodell. “The NFL can no longer ignore this and perpetuate the use of this name as anything but what it is: a racial slur,” Cantwell and Cole write in the letter. “It is clear that you haven’t heard the leading voices of this country — and not just Indian Country. Virtually every major civil rights organization in America has spoken out in opposition to this name including the NAACP, the Anti-Defamation League, the Rainbow Coalition and the League of United Latin American Citizens.”

I have a well documented, by myself, history of laughing at the Redskins and their tiny little owner Daniel Snyder. He gives people apples for bonuses, he sucks at running a team, and he shouldn’t buckle under the pressure of Congress. Senator Cantwell and Representative Cole need to mind their own god damn business. They want Goodell to force Snyder’s team to change the name that has been around since before they were born. Is it racist? Fuck yes it is. The team is named after the color of a person’s skin. It could only be more racist if it was the Washington Big Red Nose Whisky Drinkers or the Washington Drug Dealing Dark Skinned Former Slaves. Newsflash people, Native Americans don’t give a shit. You know why? They get a shit ton of perks for the horrible things the white people did to their ancestors. If I could run casinos and not pay taxes and sell cheap cigarettes just for Irish people being treated like dogs, I’d be all in. Not happening. These Native Americans just want to live their lives and not be bothered by shit like changing football teams names. They probably rake in the dough at the sports books when people put money on the ‘Skins while betting on other teams, kinda like pouring some out for the homies with booze. (The Skins never win/cover). And the argument is every other Civil Rights group wants the name change but the only one that matters doesn’t. Get a fucking clue.
