"Native Americans call themselves many things. The one thing they don't....."

It's about time that the Washington Professional Football Team changes its name. It is unfathomable to me how anyone cannot see this. In the year 2014.
Most reasonable minds agree that the team name is offensive. The passage below is from ChangeTheMascot.org. There are edits for emphasis and added links.
Change the Mascot is a national campaign to end the use of the racial slur “redskins” as the mascot and name of the NFL team in Washington, D.C. Launched by the Oneida Indian Nation, the campaign calls upon the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell to do the right thing and bring an end the use of the racial epithet.If enough of us, whether Native American or not, start speaking out, maybe the change will come. Get involved by contacting the Washington Professional Football Team, the NFL and the Washington Post. Besides these contact links here, there are additional links below on Facebook and Twitter.
