President Obama : “Redskins Name Is Offensive, I’d Probably Change It” [POLL]

I saw this over at TMZ.  Congress might be shut down … but President Barrack Obama found time to dive into the debate over the Washington Redskins name telling a reporter he would “think about changing” the team name because it offends people.

The Prez was asked about the issues renewed controversy over the past few months … and proclaimed nostalgia isn’t a good enough reason to keep the name.

Saying if he were team owner … there’d be serious discussion about changing it.

However, Barack doesn’t think fans of the name are being racist — they’re just passionate for team history.

Obama joins a growing movement of people once again pushing for the change — including NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.


The only people who could be offended by the name are offended (Native Americans), and have been asking for the name change for years.  I don’t understand why this is even a debate.  The name is offensive and should be changed. I’m sure people will find a reason to get mad at the President for commenting on this. What do you think ? Maybe a name change would make them not suck.
