Daniel Snyder "REDSKINS OWNER SAYS HE WON`T CHANGE TEAM NAME":
Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder reiterated Wednesday his long-held insistence that he won’t change the team’s name, in the face of new criticism from American Indians who find it offensive.
Count me among those who agree that the team`s logo is offensive and has been so since Dan Snyder chose to illustrate a name that even Native Americans do not use.
Daily, I am called upon to sign this petition or that petition here at Daily Kos. I have never denied any call and have consistently joined this community to right a wrong which a petition points out must be corrected.
I do not know how, nor have I ever faced an urge to draw up my own petition asking Kossacks to join me in a fight to right a wrong or an issue as racist as what I call upon you to join me with this short memo of a diary.
If those, or you who call upon me to sign your petition daily would rightfully put up one designed to call attention to this video which I bring to you, I would appreciate it with all my heart. I think it is time for the State of Washington to ditch their racist logo on their home team, a state that should respect human dignity against racial discrimination.
If I could draw up my own petition, I would urge Snyder to send a message to Kansas City, and Atlanta that they bury their racist`s logos for all time. I am sure you could could write up a pretty convincing petition. If so I thank you.
Enjoy tomorrow`s Super Bowl game.
