My name is Kelly. I am Cherokee, Blackfoot, and black from what I know so far. I was not raised in Native culture but it has always been the side of me that I've supported the most. Hit me up if you have anything to say. Thanks :)

Washington Redskins Launch Native Americans Foundation
For many years, the Washington Redskins have been criticized for what some would call a derogatory team nickname toward Native Americans and tribal communities. And for many years, Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has vigorously defended the team’s name.

I still don’t like it…. I feel like this was done as a publicity stunt… Instead of changing the name they show “support”  to our people so show the public that actually care that they aren’t just ignoring or don’t care about us.  The name is still unacceptable regardless of what they do…
