Once again, the topic of the Washington Redskins name has come up. WRC anchor Jim Vance contributed this to the discussion, basically a plea for…a discussion.

I can see the argument too ways — historically “Redskins” is an ethnic slur. On the other side, the Washington football team’s long use of Redskins has changed the meaning of the word. Several polls have shown a super-majority of native Americans don’t object to the team name.
Nevertheless, I think I have come up with a solution:
The Washington Redbullets! After all, people keep saying they miss the Washington Bullets name, but the NBA team isn’t going to change. Everybody happy now? I’m getting the t-shirts made soon.
