It is just being reported that the Washington Redskins are now going to drop the name and the logo. One of the oldest of the National Football League teams, the Redskins name was adopted in 1933. The new name and logo has not been revealed. The Redskins name has been denounced by many Native American groups for years. It has been, and still is considered by the groups to be an ethnic slur.
It will be interesting to see if other sports teams also change their names. I have read that the Cleveland Indians are considering changing their name. Here in Indiana Indianapolis is home to the Indianapolis Indians, a Triple A minor league farm team for the Pittsburgh Pirates. I have not heard anything about changing the Indianapolis Indians name yet, but I bet there will at least be a discussion.
