    Anti-Redskins Momentum Keeps Building, Provokes Spectacular Backlash

    To keep or drop the name of the NFL franchise based in Washington, DC? That is the question. The name — “Redskins,” considered the worst racial slur directed at American Indians — is becoming a regular subject for Washington Post sportswriters and columnists, and raw meat for commenters at washingtonpost.com. The writers are in favor of scrapping the name; readers who take the time to comment on the story tend to be violently opposed to a change, bemoaning “political correctness” and liberal media bias.
