The original owner who named the team in the 1930's was a known racist who opposed having any black players on his roster until the 1960's.

 

Great history huh? Why the name has stood for so long, and still stands today in 2014 is beyond me.

In order to go with the theme shouldn't they be called the "Honkies" or "Pale-Faces" or something of the sorts?

 

What like the "Washington Crackas"?

 

I see no issue with this...

Next we have to get rid of the BRAVES, INDIANS, BLACKHAWKS............If West Meck can change their name, why can't the NFL team in Washington? This is my favorite mascot, by far:

None of the names you listed are derogatory slurs.

So is the commercial's position "look! Here's a few native Americans that aren't offended! See?"

I didn't bother watching.

If they say they are, they are. They never called themselves either of those made up names. Those are names by the oppressors given to them. Again, West Meck changed from the Indians(made up derogatory name) to the Hawks or something. Like the commercial says, "They have many names, but they never called themselves X."

Doesn't matter what they call them. They are still from Washington and they still have Dan Synder and RGKnee.

I really don't get the RG3 thing with this forum. Can someone get me up to speed?
