I have always known this team by this name.
It just seems natural.
But I can also see that it is a slur.
It could be considered an insult.
It is surely time for an apology and a change.
On behalf of all lighter-skinned Americans, we apologize to all Native Americans that the name Washington has been affixed to an otherwise proud team name.
With apologies to the great state of Washington, I say let’s give the Washington part of the name the boot. It’s just an insult and a slur to continue with it as is.
In unrelated news, the descendants of George Washington have called the District of Columbia and want their name expunged from our nation’s capital.
