New York Post’s Phil Mushnick: No Good Defense to Keeping Offensive Name

In his June 2 Equal Time column in the New York Post, Phil Mushnick took his look at the debate over the use of the term redskins by the Washington, D.C. NFL franchise. For him, it's a matter of "common decency" to oppose the use.

"'Redskins' is not like Braves or Warriors, respectful, flattering nicknames. But even the most obdurate fan, one who would have no problem as part of an NFL crowd — even one partially sober — cheering for the 'Redskins' would be unlikely to approach a North American Indian and refer to him or her as 'redskin.'

"Why? Because most minimally right-headed folks know that is wrong, offensive. That should end it right there. 'Redskins' had a nice run, but it is time — well past the time — to go."
