The Washington Redskins will NEVER change their name, insists owner as he breaks silence on 'racist' term

About time someone stood up to the dictators of the Left

The owner of the Washington Redskins has insisted that the name of the team will never change despite growing controversy over its origins as a derogatory term for Native Americans.

Daniel Snyder told USA Today : ‘We’ll never change the name. It’s simple. NEVER’.

The team has been under fire from some critics who say the term is a racial slur because of its origins in bounties placed on the scalps of Native Americans by British settlers.

The director of the National Museum of the American Indians has said the word ‘redskin’ is equivalent to the ‘n-word’.

But Mr Snyder, who rarely speaks to the media, broke his silence on the name which has been with the team since 1937.

He told the paper:  ‘We will never change the name of the team. As a lifelong Redskins fan, and I think that the Redskins fans understand the great tradition and what it’s all about and what it means, so we feel pretty fortunate to be just working on next season. ‘We’ll never change the name. It’s that simple. NEVER — you can use caps.’

Finally someone in a position to take it to the PC litigationistas on equal terms. The public should back him all the way to the Supreme Court in need be. Enough of the PC bullshit once and for all.

I played football for the Cardinal Gibbons Redskins when I went to high school there. They are now the Cardinal Gibbons Chiefs. I think in 10 years that word will be deemed racist and they will have to change it again
