Change the Mascot
There's a powerful video circulating the internet the last few days, and it addresses the use "redskins" as it is used to described the NFL football term, Washington Redskins. The Washington Redskins has been a source of controversy between NFL owners, Native American groups, fans and the United States government. Some Native American groups insist that the term redskin is a racial epithet and as such perpetuates the demeaning sterotypes of Native Americans. Numerous civil rights, education, athletic, and academic organizations consider any use of native names and/or symbols by non-native sports teams to be a harmful form of ethnic sterotyping which should be eliminated.
