I take exception to Sen. Maria Cantwell’s position on threatening to examine the NFL’s tax-exempt status if they do not pressure the Washington Redskins to change their name. I call that blackmail on the part of Cantwell.
I cannot believe the majority of American Indians are that thin-skinned, to be offended by a sport team being called the Redskins. I agree with the NFL that the name is an honor and a tribute to the American Indians.
I wonder what the attitude would be if the Redskins had won the Super Bowl?
