The argument urging the Washington Redskins to change their name has an important supporter.
65-year-old Jordan Wright is the granddaughter of George Preston Marshall, the team's original owner who brought the team to Washington in 1937 and came up with the name. She says the name is offensive to Native Americans and should be changed.
Wright, who had chosen to remain out of the discussion for a long time, recently spoke to the Washington Post and said, "It’s about respect. If even one person tells you that name, that word you used, offends them, then that’s enough. That should be enough."
She says she understands the rich history of the team and why current owner Dan Snyder doesn't want to change the name, but adds that times have changed and the name should too. (Washington Post)
