    Only if the Cleveland Indians have to change their mascot too, that thing is as racist as Sambo.

    Do the Braves and Blackhawks honor Native Americans or are they blatantly racist too?

    Go to an Indian casino and ask the native Americans if its offensive..then watch them laugh and take a big ole swig of fire water and count their monthly stipend of $3500

    They'll change it.

    Pressure is just starting to be applied. Another 5 years, and it'll be more intense. Within 10 years it will be changed.

    Most native americans are okay with names like "Braves" and "Warriors", and usually they want individual tribes to approve their names (like with the Seminoles). The difference here is that redskin is the Indian equivalent of Reggie, so they are really ticked off about it, and I can see why.

    I'm glad Obama was able to take the time out of his day to weigh in on this important cultural issue.

    Look, some of them aren't going to be happy with any of it, just like there are Irish who hate the ND mascot. I can see where they have a right to protest Redskins, but when it comes to Chiefs I say cry me a fucking river.
