Hail to the Redskins !

Hail to the Redskins !

Is the word “Redskins” a racial slur or does it displays honor to the Native American Group. No one actually uses the name only if they’re associating it with Washington. When I hear the word “Redskins,” I think about the red paint that Native American put on their faces before they went into war. They were warriors who weren’t afraid of anything that came their way. Because of their will to survive and great strengths, many Native American names have been added to schools and colleges. If the name changed it would be a dishonor to the Native American Tribe.
Many arguments and debates are being made today over the change of the Washington Redskins name being changed. This controversy also involves the logo of the Washington Redskins which has been a source of controversy between its owners, certain Native American groups, fans, and the United States government. Some Native American groups insist that the term “Redskin,” is a racial epithet, and stereotypes of Native Americans, while others believe that the name is honoring the achievements and virtues of Native Americans, and that it is not intended in a negative manner. Former Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke said “I admire the Redskins name. I think it stands for bravery, courage and stalwart spirit and I see no reason why we shouldn’t continue to use it.” In agreement to him I also believe that the name should stay the same considering the fact Washington does not try to offend the Native American tribes and their mascot doesn’t depict any bad imagery to the race.
I feel that the Redskins are being singled out because they are located “Capitol Hill.”. Where are the calls for the Atlanta Braves, Florida State Seminoles, Illinois Fighting Illini, Chicago Blackhawks, North Dakota Fighting Sioux, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego State Aztecs, Utah Utes, Central Michigan Chippewa’s etc. If we change colleges and universities names it will take away the history, honor and respect that Native Americans feel from these school. No one of these schools use the name or mascot in a derogatory way. Indian tribes have supported the use of their tribal names as a tribute to their heritage. According to Redskin’s news, Stephen Dodson a full-blooded American Inuit chief originally from the Aleutian Tribes of Alaska said “Redskin isn’t something given to us by the white man or the blue eyes. It was something in the Native American community that was taken from us. It’s used as a term of respect because that is how we were. We respected each other with that term.” Dodson shows the positive in the power of the name. Why should we as nation take homage away from the Native Americans?
Think about the history behind the Washington Redskins. Redskins have won five professional American football championships including two NFL Championships and three Super Bowls. The franchise captured ten NFL divisional titles and six NFL conference championships. If the name is changed, people in the future will not know about Washington Redskins and the history behind it will be lost. Think of all the great men that put their blood, sweat and tears towards winning titles to just showing you a great game of football every Sunday. If we look back to many other teams that have gotten their name switch, the men behind all the work have been forgotten.
