US Senators Oppose Racist Team Name, But In WI...
Once players begin to take a stand - - as have 50 Democratic Party members of the US Senate today (minus any Republicans, of course, and shame on the five cowardly racism-enabling Democrats who chickened out) - - the slur that is the name and face of my home town professional football team will finally be erased.
If the NBA can ban a racist owner, the NFL in 2014 can get rid of a racist symbol that infects the league's credibility and degrades every team-related piece of memorabilia, merchandise and news coverage.
Further delay by team owner Daniel Snyder and the league is inexcusable.
No professional sports team would create and advertise a symbol, logo or nickname equally insulting to any other race, religion, ethnic or minority group.
Though in Wisconsin - - true story - - Gov. Scott Walker and his legislative allies - - egged by right-wing talk radio - - actually wrote and signed a 2013 state law making it easier for local Wisconsin schools to retain racist team and school identities.
Run for President on that, Governor.
That's becuz in Wisconsin, the unofficial motto of the Walker Administration is: "Racists 'R Us!"
