Snyder Tells ‘Redskins’ Critics ‘We’re Not an Issue’
Dan Snyder, the owner of Washington’s NFL team, made brief remarks to an Associated Press reporter on Tuesday arguing that it’s time for people to “focus on reality” concerning Native American issues instead of criticizing the team’s nickname.
You mean the reality that images of Native people are being used in racist manners to perpetuate stereotypes? That the idea of the “Native savage” is one that detracts from the real issues Native people face? You mean the things that team names like “Redskins” feed into?
