Team Names

For John, BLUFThere are more important issues out there.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

"New poll finds 9 in 10 Native Americans aren’t offended by Redskins name"

This is Washington Post "Local News", by John Woodrow Cox, Scott Clement and Theresa Vargas.
Nine in 10 Native Americans say they are not offended by the Washington Redskins name, according to a new Washington Post poll that shows how few ordinary Indians have been persuaded by a national movement to change the football team’s moniker.

The survey of 504 people across every state and the District reveals that the minds of Native Americans have remained unchanged since a 2004 poll by the Annenberg Public Policy Center found the same result. Responses to The Post’s questions about the issue were broadly consistent regardless of age, income, education, political party or proximity to reservations.

So, who is pushing the idea of changing the name of the Washington Redskins?  A disaffected minority?  Federal bureaucrats?  The Mainstream Media?  University professors?  Social Justice Warriors (SJW)?

And, of course, my perennial question—Why worry about the Skins when US One, snaking through Virginia, from the 14th Street Bridge, is the Jeff Davis Highway?

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
