Washington D.C. paper refuses to call the Redskins, the Redskins
The Washington City Paper has announced that they will only refer to the Washington Redskins as the Washington Pigskins.
Controversy has always followed the Redskins because of their controversal name. Some people believe it’s racist, since it’s referring to native Americans ( I tend to agree). But after being taken to court numerous times by outsiders who don’t approve of the name, no one has ever been successful in making them change it.
Since the City Paper can’t make the Redskins change their name, it looks like they’ll just refer to them as a the Pigskins.
