The National Congress of American Indians recently posted this video addressing the controversy of the professional Washington football team’s name.
The National Congress of American Indians released this advertisement just in time for the Super Bowl, but it did not receive wide recognition until recently.
“This week’s celebration of football is exactly why we need to keep talking about the D.C. mascot,” the organization told Indian Country Today Media Network. “Cheering for a football team should never include the casual use of a racial slur. It is important for all teams and all of their fans that the name of the D.C. team is changed.”
What are your thoughts on the issue and the video?
