Report: Activists to Demand Radio, TV Outlets in Every NFL City Ban 'Redskins'

Native American and social justice activists will reportedly send a letter to television and radio outlets in every NFL city demanding that “Redskins” be banned. 

According to the Washington Post, the National Congress of American Indians and the Oneida Nation will lead “a coalition of more than 100 Native American and social justice groups” that “also plans to run radio ads this weekend in Texas, timed for Washington’s game against Houston,” that “asks people to call their local media outlets to tell them not to use ‘the R-word’ when reporting on the team.”

“Every time the slur is promoted on the public airwaves even in a non-critical way by a journalist, it is an endorsement of the continued use of this slur,” the letter reportedly says, according to the Post

The Washington Post editorial board decided to ban “Redskins” and on Wednesday evening, Mort Zuckerman’s New York Daily News decided to completely ban the nickname and the logo from the paper.
