DC Mayor calls for team logo and name change

DC Mayor calls for team logo and name change

Hyped by on January 10, 2013 Website:

In about the mid-1990′s the political correctness police turned their sights on to professional and college sports. Team names and logos needed to be changed in order to avoid offending certain members of society became their battle cry. The Atlanta Braves, Cleveland Indians, Florida State Seminoles and Washington Redskins among others, all became teams in their sights. The Braves and Seminoles fans were under fire for their use of the Tomahawk Chop chant from the crowds. The Indians mascot was criticized while the calls started about changing the name of the Washington Redskins.
