Redskins Owner: "We'll Never Change the Name"

By Rick Pearcey • May 10, 2013, 11:54 AM

CBSDC reports:

"We’ll never change the name. It’s simple. NEVER."

That’s what Redskins owner Daniel Snyder told USA Today Sports Thursday, with the added caveat, "you can use caps."

Snyder putting his foot down, so to speak, may be what it takes to bring some finality to a debate that’s raged on all offseason over the offensive nature of the team name "Redskins."

The word Redskins is of course neither offensive nor racist. And this lingual fact is not changed just because some person or some group claims to be "offended."

The question is whether the accusation is justified. It is not. Accusation is one thing, proof is another.

In fact, as I have noted elsewhere, the name Redskins is a "way to honor the warrior heart of the American Indian. . . . Redskin is beautiful, as are all skin colors given by our amazing Creator. Celebrate diversity, celebrate Redskins."
