    There was a great piece on this on The Athletic yesterday, which I'd highly recommend as a place to start:

    Seems to me there are enough folks who find these offensive to make the changes a no-brainer.

    Ya, they should be changed. Naming your team after a minority is something that should be off limits. How we haven’t gotten past this and that there are people out there why ridiculously argue that we should keep the names, is beyond me. That Redskins are ACTUALLY named after the skin colour of a minority. It’s shameful.

    Redskins won't change their team name with the current ownership, and the Indians likely won't either. Sad truth is native americans will still be a second thought on systemic racism in NA, so the racist team names of Native Americans likely won't change any time soon.
    Chiefs, Blackhawks, Braves, Eskimos don’t have grounds for legit change?

    Since many of you are Canadian, I'm going to say that the Seminoles are the team mentioned I expect a 0% chance of changing soon. You read that right. The difference can be found in the fact that the Seminole Tribes have given written support and are consulted by the university. Here's the thing I found that somewhat explains it:

    https://unicomm.fsu.edu/messages/rel...tribe-florida/

    Basically, if the tribes are good with it, and like it, it's fine. It wouldn't surprise me if some other schools have similar things going on with tribes.

    I would agree that your example would be taking things too far... but the Redskins? Really man? That's what we need to stand up and protect? A team called the Redskins?

    I used to wear a beautiful red Blackhawks jersey #7 Chelios when doing quick out and about chores but I stopped a few years ago . I still thinks its the coolest jersey of all-time and since I live in northern ontario I'll see aboriginal fellas decked out in Chicago Blackhawks swag at least a few times a week .
