I think the name should be changed, but I can’t make a logical argument.
I think the NFL can force the Washington Redskins to change the name, because the Washington Redskins are part of a league. If you do not abide by the rules of the league, then the league can boot you out. This was essentially the case with Donald Sterling (who made racist remarks, asking his mistress to not be seen with black people in public.)
However, the league hasn’t made that call yet, and I don’t think “Redskins” and evidence around it is strong enough to say that it is hate speech.
So quickly, the government shouldn’t be able to make Dan Snyder (owner of the team) change the name, but the National Football League can IF they choose to. I don’t think the NFL is going to make that leap until money comes into play, and I don’t think that time is upon them…just yet.
As for the actual name, I’d say:
The Washington Benjamins
Because RGIII is money. Or something. I don’t know.
