It Is a Big Deal People – Changing This Name and Logo; We Have Camps

By Marc Lande

It is a big deal people. Changing this name and logo. We have camps: The Red tails camp to keep the Red and honor Tuskegee airmen. I have met a Tuskegee who was just a little too young to actually see action.

There are the warriors close to the old name keep traditions alive and vets today. Sounds better than Redskins but still too martial and in my view does not do it.

We have the hogs, the generals, the defenders, and the Americans where my camp is in a native language that is easy to pronounce.

It’s big. I mean republicans, hawks, economists, democrats, environmentalist, gun rights activist and owners, anti-gun right activists, the list goes on and on, old, young, black, white Puerto Rican, Jew, brown, yellow…I have my camp but I don’t care that much and I don’t care that much about being PC.

Excuse me I care to be pc on the name Redskins and the racist logo. But if we take an evil out of the community I can’t be so oc is done with racial equality in mind. So Warriors is not bad if it can justify how we are all created equally.

Look Abe Polin got it terribly wrong with Wizards. Connections connotations to KKK Grand Wizards, Chosen after an informal poll.

I do not think anyone even considered its relationship to the KKK. They were focused on getting rid of the “Bullet” name and its relationship to gun violence. but I think he was trying to correct an evil in our community.

Let’s unite around a name that means something red tails—the emblem of the Tuskegee airmen, Windtalkers (a 2002 Nichollos Cage movie about the critical role of a native Navajo language in keeping secrets from the Germans), First Americans or an adaptation of the name from a native tongue that is easy to pronounce.

There are so many Native words and languages let’s make this team native.

For example, Yewa (Yay-Wah)complements of the AiNUTA website Catawba Language, Catawba Indian Nation from South Carolina. What a coincidence that would be Sounds like Yahweh—the old testament word for “God”. But any word from great spirit to chickens works for me.

Here’s my logic. Our country is an immigrant country. Washington is that symbol head. The pilgrims as pc we get I like to believe in spirit of thanksgiving and natives protecting us that first Thanksgiving.

As Jews we know best way to never forget and educate on holocaust. Are we in that much shame over our ways that we cannot ask for another gift from natives?

So when a new arriving immigrant learns of the NFL he learns a Native American word and our histories, both bad and some good like this gift and the first thanksgiving!

However, the message here is that the public must be part of the decision. We cannot have a repeat of the way the Wizards replaced the Bullets as the name of our NBA franchise. A local radio station. How many people when voting for the name considered that Wizards was the name used to designate a high official of the KKK.

Also, Dan Snyder should not be allowed to choose the name alone especially his past record. And if he does Dan please consider a gift from native Americans before anything else…It must represent consensus of the local community.
