Because Harry Reid says so. The Native American Polls say otherwise. If the Redskins are forced to change their name, then the state of Oklahoma will have to change theirs, as well as all other references to Native Americans.

Yeah, that name's gotta go. But there are ample opportunities for really good new names. Red Menace if you want to strike 1950s Soviet-style fear into your opponent. Red Demons (imagine the mascot!) if you wants the fundamentalist church bloc up in arms. Red Bulls is taken. The Redliners if you want to call attention to Washington's apartheid-like housing of whites and non-whites. I kind of like Redactors to remind fans of what Washington bureaucrats do to nearly every document before it's declassified. I nominated Washington Palefaces on the WaPo site, but the lack of likes indicates fans want to keep "red" in the name.

Patience is a great virtue.

just keeping the name Redskins, and have 3 redskin potatoes on the helmet. We could try the Washington Scandals too.

... The Washington Red Inks or the Washington Red Tapes work for me!

The point is meaningless since nobody is willing to actually do right by the Indians and give them their land back. This is a hollow gesture.

I hope the Redskins choose another race based name. People suggested the Caucasians or the Rednecks. Either way I would wear that jersey despite being a Lions fan.
