There has been an ongoing debate regarding the political correctness of the name of the Washington D.C. NFL team known as the Washington Redskins. Just last week, President Obama came out and said the name ‘Redskins’ is racist and insults the American Indian community. He called on the owner of the team to change the name.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: If it had a storied history that was offending a sizeable group of people, I’d think about changing it.
But is the name really offensive, or this yet another example of political correctness run amuck? Glenn decided it was time to set the record straight.
