    Bob Costas has come late to this decision. This is a disappointment considering his sports history. Where was he two, five, ten years ago.

    In all serious though- I remember learning in an am history class in college that that had something to do with their skin being red from blood, not the tone of their skin. I cannot recall specifically the exact wording, but it had to do with bloodshed of natives when there was heaving fighting between natives and the whites.

    In 1995 the Washington Bullets owner decided to change the name of his NBA team to the Wizards because he didn't like the overtone in regards to the city and the high crime rate. Still today the crime rate is high. A name change will never go over well and it will not accomplish anything. This liberal movement in the name of progression is nothing more than polishing a turd. Costas and Obama and many others have are trying to gain attention and push a society towards diversity and satisfy their own idea of justice but the more they push the further we are apart. The Redskins logo is that of a WARRIOR, a FIGHTER and all Costas can Obama can see is the color of the redskin. I have been looking at that logo for years and I never saw red, I see it for what it is- a survivor or leader. Who is actually the racist in all this?

    I suggest a name change from the Washington Redskins to the Washington Foreskins to honor all the PC dickheads like Bob Costas.

    If Native Americans want to take a stand against the name, then they have a right to. But idiots like Costas and Obama need to shut their pie holes.

    Is there anything else? People in the south call asphalt roads- black top, is that racist? maybe we can burn ALL records of Bing Crosbys "white Xmas" because that could be seen as eliminating all and have XMAS soley for the whites. Costas continues to try to keep his name in the light and this is they kind of talk that keeps people in their own little segregated corner. it's worse today that when MLK was alive because today their is no dialog, just divide and protect.
