Is it time for the Washington Redskins to change their name? A D.C. councilman believes that the outdated and racist name should be changed to the Redtails.

Allen doesn’t want to ruin the history of the Redskins football team by changing its name, but Grosso may have the perfect solution. The councilman suggests that the team starts calling itself the Redtails. That way the team can keep its feather, its fight song, and its colors. The name will also attempt to smooth relations with anyone who felt discriminated against since “redtails” was the nickname for the the Tuskegee Airmen, the aviation unit that broke the color barrier in World War II.

Must be pretty boring on the DC council. Besides, The skins are based out of MD. Who cares what a DC councilman thinks.
