Our nation was founded on a simple idea: We're all created equal. We've never lived up to it — but we've never stopped trying. This Independence Day, let's not just celebrate those words, let's commit to finally fulfill them. Happy #FourthOfJuly!
And here it is: the Redskins are undergoing a thorough review of the team’s name.
And let’s be clear: There’s no review if there’s no change coming.
Redskins on way out.
Nike is going to remove all their Redskins merchandise, but, in a gesture of goodwill toward China, they will continue allowing their shoes to be made by sterilized Uighur Muslim slaves.
*Some* people are acting as if changing the Redskins name is just political correctness run amok in this new era
But Native Americans have been fighting for a name change for decades and redskin is a pejorative. Do their requests not matter?
They can change the name of the Redskins to the Washington Kneelers. I don't care about the NFL anymore.
The Redskins have decided to rename the team after President Trump. They will now be known as the Thinskins.
let virgil design the redskins uniforms
The Redskins (really, just Dan Snyder) finally considering a name change isn't indicative that people can grow. It's that money is powerful leverage. A reminder that to get anything accomplished, you have to go after the money. Everything else is window dressing.
No idea why the military was shoehorned into this but now I'm positive they're changing their name to the Generals to honor The Troops™ https://t.co/QwxRs6gf89
Dear journalists: If the Washington Redskins name is changed, credit Native Americans first who have been advocating this change for decades—far longer than corporations like FedEx, Nike, their board members, or politicians—and mostly alone
Do not write us out of our own story
What should the Washington Redskins change their name to?
What should the Washington Redskins new name be?
A few years ago, on the phone, @baxter asked me if I knew what a Redskin actually was.
“A Redskin is the scalped head of a Native American sold, like a pelt, for cash,” he said.
Within a few hours, he filed this, a devastating and important history.
The media has a simple way of making the Redskins name an artifact of racist history. Stop publishing the slur/logo in your pieces if you are not native.
We are calling on all journalists to use the name Washington R-words. That simple change by media will help force change. https://t.co/puN8iJpYLm
Alyssa Milano states Redskins name 'cannot be tolerated any longer' after she's caught modeling and marketing Redskins merchandise https://t.co/AhcT5rnyZi
Remember this! When you give the mob an inch they'll take a yard! It won't end with the #Redskins changing their names! After that they'll go after the KC #Chiefs Atlanta #Braves #Cleveland #Indians & since the mob hates the color white Chicago #WhiteSox will be on their hit list https://t.co/OxYiqjOOBw

Redskins name change is BULLSHIT! Lefty Democrat NutJobs Hijacked all the non-profits claiming to help indigenous people, when in fact train them to be victims! I know ZERO American Indians who want the name changed! Dummies! It is insulting to all Americans to change history!
Suggestion for new nickname for the @Redskins
The Washington Dingbats
It has a certain ring to it.
Allison N Devers to Not Go Outside. Get it?@andevers
What if the Washington Redskins became the Washington Citizens and their mascot became a voting box and pen and "Taxation without Representation" was printed on every damn thing? That seems like the most significant thing they could do for the people of DC.
Rename the Washington Redskins the Washington Tyrants.
Pass it on.
Washington Redskins must see statements. #NativeTwitter #NativeAmericans #NativeLivesMatter #irqlax https://t.co/KwgMzXqJSy
