The Washington Redskins currently play at the FedEx Field in Maryland, but ever since they've been victorious in their battles against other NFL teams, Washington D.C. mayor Vincent Gray wants them back — but only if they CHANGE their so-called "racist" name!! LOLz
“I think that if they get serious with the team coming back to Washington, there’s no doubt there’s going to have to be a discussion about [changing the team name]. I think it has become a lightning rod, and I would love to be able to sit down with the team … and see if a change should be made. There’s a precedent for this, and I think there needs to be a dispassionate discussion about this, and do the right thing.”
Crazy thing is that Vincent is not just trying to be funny. He's actually REALLY serious on account of the fact that the feds have power over the land where the new Redskins' stadium would be constructed in D.C.
So there's no way the team can get away from a name swap discussion… even if their title was established in 1932! Ha!
Peep the logo (below). Do U think it's racist?!?
