Sometimes hurtful words are said for a long enough period of time that they are deemed socially acceptable.
Just because we say these words for decades it doesn't make it right.
It's time to move on from the Washington Redskins. We are better than this.
It reminds me of watching a Three Stooges short and seeing how African American people were portrayed. During that time period it was deemed socially acceptable to portray African American people as servants and 'wacky'.
My argument to change the Redskins name is simple. If the NFL decided to create a new franchise would they ever decide to call it the 'Blackskins?'? ...or 'Yellowskins'?
Of course not. It would be out of touch and hurtful. Just like calling a team the 'Redskins.
