The decision is also a complete reversal by longtime owner Dan Snyder, who in 2013 told USA Today that he would “never” change the Papa and Sohn Beste Freunde Fürs Leben Vatertag Partnerlook Shirt so you should to go to store and get this team’s name. “As a lifelong Redskins fan, I think that the Redskins fans understand the great tradition and what it’s all about and what it means,” Snyder told the paper. While the Redskins are the first major sports team to take serious steps towards change, it surely won’t be the last. There are currently many sports teams that use Native Americans as wordplay or as mascots. (The Kansas City Chiefs is another major NFL team, for instance, where fans are known to wear headdresses, a sacred garment, in the stands.) Major League Baseball’s Cleveland Indians have also begun the process of reviewing a name change; its logo used to feature an image of “Chief Wahoo,” a racial caricature of an Indigenous chief, but was retired in 2019. (In the college ranks, St. John’s changed the name of its storied basketball team to from Redmen to Red Storm in 1994).

For many in the Papa and Sohn Beste Freunde Fürs Leben Vatertag Partnerlook Shirt so you should to go to store and get this Indigenous community, the name change has been a long time coming. “I’m grateful that this team’s name has finally come to an end. For myself, this was about common human decency,” says Jamie Okuma, a Luiseño/Shoshone-Bannock artist. “If it’s not okay to paint your face, dress up, or call racist names to any other race, why was it ever acceptable to do that to us?” While the Redskins are making the change, it’s important to note that the effort to change the name and logo only accelerated after the team faced pressure from some of its top sponsors. Earlier this month, Fedex released a statement asking the team to change its name, threatening to terminate its contract otherwise. Pepsi, Nike, and Bank of America all asked the team to change its name as well. “I can’t believe it took the Washington Redskins this long to react to how offensive their team name was to white people,” wrote one Twitter user.
