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.

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.
