L.A. Times wastes time on Washington Redskins

Written by Juan Cena on Sunday, November 29 2009 and posted in SWRT

Without an NFL team of its own to complain about, The Los Angeles Times ran an editorial piece about the Washington Redskins. Guess which tired argument it was making? Yep, it calling on Washington to drop the Redskins from it's "racist" name.
Wait, it gets better. The Times even went as far to suggest Washington should just call themselves the "Washington Reds." Like a certain baseball team from Cincinnati is going to allow that to happen. Different sport, yes. But that doesn't matter in the anal landscape of modern day copyright protection. Besides, "Reds" has all sorts of connotations on either side of the political spectrum. They'd either be insulting commies or teabaggers.
There are enough problems in California right now for The Los Angeles Times to focus on. Complaining about the Washington Redskins is totally unproductive. Besides, it's doubtful Daniel Snyder is listening. He doesn't listen to anybody else.
