Washington Redskins Announce Dropping Their Racist Name and Logo On Letterhead with Racist Name and Logo


It’s hard to give up the “old ways,” as Bradley Cooper sang in “A Star is Born.”

And so it is for the Washington Redskins. They announced they are dropping their racist name and logo this morning. The press release came on stationery featuring… their racist name and logo.

One of the new names they’re considering is “Red Skin Potatoes.” That way they can call each other “Bud” and there’s a beer tie in. I joke, but you never know.
