When is enough enough? Now we have a Tribe of Indians in up-state New York putting out a radio ad to try to get the Washington Redskins to drop the name “Redskins.” How long is this going to go on?
The team has been called the Redskins for years. The American Indians need to get over it already. They should feel good about the fact that the NFL is representing them.
Here is what is happening now, The Oneida Indian Nation said the first ad will run on radio stations in Washington before the team hosts the Philadelphia Eagles in its season opener Monday night.
Are they serious? Do they think the team is going to drop the name just because they place an ad on the radio? Don’t they have better use for their money?
Oneida Nation Representative Ray Halbritter says NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should ”stand up to bigotry” by denouncing ”the racial slur” in the team’s name. Come on, nobody complained about this 30 years ago.
Why are they making a big deal out of it now? This is just another leg in the journey that someday would make it impossible for Americans to speak their minds. The Oneida leader says; we don’t deserve to be called Redskins.
Is this guy serious? Nobody is calling them Redskins, they are calling the football team Redskins. Why doesn’t he take out an ad against the potato industry? After all Redskin potato’s have been around longer than the Washington Redskins.
Enough is enough already. It is time for these Indians to get over it already…..
