If the Washington Redskins changed their team logo and mascot to an apple would the name still be considered racist?

The racist accusers will never be satisfied no matter what they do. Because the issue is not the name, the issue is control.

Liberals, I am sure, would find a way to make it racist.
I wouldn't care at all if there was a team named the 'Crackers' so who gives two s*its about the stupid Redskins name...only people with nothing better to worry about.

It's not racist now. So this is a nonissue, but I would love to see them do that or a potato just to slap these politicians that have nothing better to do in the face. Basically telling them to fuck off.

Except that would make any sense because the Washington Redskins are on the east coast and Washington state is famous for apples

I only knew that because I'm originally from wa state. I had to Google the redskins cause I wasn't 100% where they were from lol

That's what they should change the name to, the Washington D.C. Redskins. That way everyone knows which Washington they're from! ;P

Yes. Definitely. Red delicious apples would take issue with this. And little green apples would be laughing their little apple asses off to the core.

And the biracial apples (Honeycrisp) wouldn't have a voice in it either...

I bought some honeycrisps at Fresh Market last week and they were enormous!! 4 apples were just shy of 4lbs. Cost me nearly $12, lol. Worth every penny. They make great applesauce too...no need to add anything.

Bought two of them today and was $6. They are huge. Apples on steroids. I'll stick with the royal galas and delicious variety.

That is genius, they keep their name and native Americans don't have to continue to be insulted. Love it!

There has been many reports written that the Native Americans don't actually find the name offensive. The think of it as the name of a sports team.

How about calling them the Washington bull artist. It represents the seat of our government.

That would make no sense, considering the Washington Redskins are from D.C.

Change it to a potato. Then they don't have to change their name.
