It’s becoming clear (very quickly) that John Oliver is becoming the internets guide to common sense. The general population seems to agree that the Washington Redskins name should be changed. Native American tribes across the country have made it clear they find the term offensive and want it changed.
Redskins owner Daniel Snyder is still refusing to consider the name change and continues to staunchly defend the blatantly racist name. Snyder who Oliver refers to as “Chief Runs-Without-Moral-Compass‘ claims the franchises name is a ‘badge of pride’. Oliver even cut in clips of Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation's anti-Redskins commercial.
I understand that people have to think for themselves but if John Oliver tells you that you’re wrong, its time for some soul searching. One thing Oliver didn’t touch on is how much money Snyder would make if the name was changed, think about all the new Washington football club merchandise that fans across North America would scoop up.
