Should Washington’s professional football team change its nickname?

Corporations — including FedEx, Pepsi and Nike — have joined those pushing for removal of Redskins from the team name.

USA Today sports columnist Mike Jones, a Warrenton native, writes that the time has come for team owner Daniel Snyder to make the change.

The Washington football team should definitely change its name. It is shameful that it took this long for the team to remove the racial slur "Redskin" from its name.

AP you are such a child.
July 6, 2020 at 5:34 pm
Because you can't help it - and you are never ashamed. If you were capable of shame, you wouldn't be a democrat.

AmericanPatriot - Now why would I call someone a racist? That is their shame to bear not mine.

Linda, you forgot to call me a racist.

I'm referring to the millionaire players....

The NFL hasn't had teams in a long time, the out of control millionaires are self destructing.........

They can call themselves the Washington Squirrels for all I care, it's a football team, nothing more and nothing less.

Karl Engels, you're partially right that the Democrats are somewhat different. Back when they launched the Viet Nam War, they were against Communism. Now they embrace it. And they've taken being offended to new heights.
But they're still the same racists they've always been, doing everything they can to maintain power over the votes of minorities in any way possible. Portraying minorities as perpetual victims and enslaving them with entitlements in poorly run municipalities.

Washington Warriors has a nice ring to it.

AmericanPatriot - Are you saying that all other deaths outside Vietnam, including deaths from COVID-19, are NOT REAL?
July 5, 2020 at 8:47 am
Ahh, yeah. Trot out a war started by democrats, and lost by democrats.

The difference is that the deaths in Viet Nam were real.

More people have died from COVID-19 then during the war in Vietnam (which by the way was never officially declared a war), all thanks to the Commander-in-Cheat and his inaction. Now we have bounties on US soldiers through Russia and the Republicans are still playing footsie with Putin.

So the number of soldiers that have died during Gulf I and II have no meaning to you AP? That's pathetic. More pathetic is you would never have been accepted into military service, a person needs to have an IQ of above 90, leaving out yourself and Trump.

Blame everyone else but the person in the mirror. Very juvenile!

karl, you ignorant s...

The democrat party has not moved a millimeter from where they were in 1861, to where they are now.
July 4, 2020 at 8:43 pm
Ok Tony, lets compare the dead from the Civil War, WWl, WWll, Korea, Vietnam with the two gulf wars.

FFS, there were more people killed in Chicago in the same time period.

rally39 - AmericanPatriot conveniently forgot these facts:

First Gulf War - Republican
Second Gulf War - Republican (STILL going on after almost 20 years!)

Where did you get the opinion that I was fighting against AP, I'd have to care about him to fight with him. I've scrapped better off the bottom of my shoes.

How incessantly stupid do you have to be not to recognize that the Democratic Party that made those decisions could not be farther from the platform that current democrats find themselves on. If American patriot had received a basic education, he would know these facts instead of spouting random demagoguery. Washington Rednecks coming at you fall 2020

Tony Bentley,

I recommend reviewing your post. It is opinion

AmericanPatriot posted facts, he wins this round.

AmericanPatriot -1
Tony Bentley -0

You can call my post idiotic trash - but you can't refute it with fact.

Just name calling and hysterical gibberish.
July 4, 2020 at 12:10 pm
No, you people have not moved away from your past. You are just as vicious and violent today as you were in 1861.
Tony Bentley

You seem to have forgotten that the Democrats have moved away from what you proclaim they are responsible for because they changed with the times, and the REPUBLICANS have taken up the cause because they are stuck in the past.

America will never heal until Trump and his enablers the Republicans are removed from office.

From everything you write it is very possible that you're one of the Boogaloo Boys spreading your idiotic trash on here.

You are no more an American Patriot than the dog next door. At least the dog serves a purpose, you not so much.

Nuclear weapons used on civilians - democrats
Minorities put into concentration camps - democrats
KKK - democrats
Segregation - democrats
Jim Crow laws - democrats
Civil War - democrats
WWl - democrats
WW2 - democrats
Korea - democrats
Viet Nam - democrats
Welfare state - democrats

I would say this is a pretty compelling argument to abolish the democrat party, remove every vestige of them, and jail their leaders.

Then America can heal
