I truly think that controversial names or symbols of
athletic teams should be changed. These
teams often play in the middle of the afternoon on the weekend during family
time. Kids hear these names and see
these symbols. We should be sensitive
towards people of all races and change some of these names.
I think that they should change it because it clearly expresses racism and discrimination. There is a fine line to how far they take their names and mascots. For example, the Washington Redskins' fans put red face paint on and dress like a Native American which is clearly offensive to their culture.
Just because some people disagree should not mean you change everything if the world was like that we would have no government and it would be chaos. Most people of the race of the name don't care and only they should have the choice to change it so unless you are part of the race being "discriminated" can it
