Slate won’t call them “Redskins” anymore. Remember the “Fightin’ Whites?”

“This team should be called the Washington Department of Football,” he writes Poynter in an Instant Message. “At least two former Skins players were known as secretaries of defense, including Dexter Manley and David Deacon Jones. So clearly, this is a name that would honor local tradition much better than ‘Redskins’ does.” Go Doffs! (via Slate will no longer call Washington football team ‘Redskins’ | Poynter.)
