Redskins' name is not offensive [Letter]

June 23, 2014

I have read the editorial in The Sun about the "people" who are calling the Washington Redskins' name racists. Fine. ("Washington's offensive line," June 20.)

My question is, who are these people, where are they and how many of them are there?

The Washington Redskins team holds these Native Americans up as great people of much honor. That has always been their credo.

So my suggestion to The Sun and all the other people saying the name is "racist" is to get your data correct because what you are saying is not so. There have been investigators who have talked with the Native Americans, and they don't have a problem with the name.
