Just meddling in an issue they have no business in, and know little about. But gives Dingy Harry an excuse to throw out the race card, dividing us as usual......
Reid, again calling the team’s name racist noted there are 27 Native American tribes in his state and added that the issue was “extremely important” to the Native American population across the country and praised his colleague, Washington Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell who he called a leader on the issue for her efforts in calling for the team’s name to change.

Political correctness run amuck, as usual.....absurd. The name was originally selected as a tribute to Amercian Indians..
Most American Indians other than the zealous leftie activists who have made a living suing for 30 years, could care less....many sports nicknames are about ethnicity....Indians, Braves, Celtics, Canucks, Blackhawks, Canadiens, Yankees., Vikings..
Dan Snyder the Redskins owner, is holding out against the name change. Seems, though, that if the name is changed, he would benefit from increased sales.... many would no doubt double down and still wear gear with the old name, so sales of Redskins gear would rise...and gear with the new name would sell as well...
(the new name may well be the "Red Storm" the name of a real Native American)
