Pol calls for Redskins to change their nickname to the …
It is probably a matter of time before one of the most historical franchises in sports has to change their name from the Washington Redskins to something that isn’t “racist and derogatory.” That something you ask? Well, according to a member of the Washington D.C. Council, they are going to call on the Washington Redskins to change their nickname from the “Redskins” to …get ready…hope you’re sitting down… the Washington “Redtails!”
A member of the Washington D.C. Council said he plans to submit a resolution calling on the Washington Redskins to change their nickname because it is “racist and derogatory” and “it’s time to make a change.”
David Grosso suggested the team change its name to “Redtails” in honor of the Tuskegee Airmen, a pioneering group of African-American pilots who served the United States in World War II.
