Ultimately the Washington Redskins are a sporting franchise and the team website is still selling items bearing the Redskins name/logo, albeit at a discount. This is the same as L’Oreal removing the names of “skin-whitening” products but selling them anyway.
Makes us wonder if the management truly wished to reflect strict obedience to the cancel culture they would have immediately ceased the sale of these items too. They haven’t which speaks volumes about true commitment.
Put simply, the Redskins’ owners are proving to be unwilling passengers in this ordeal forced by sponsors and a sporting code which are holding them at gunpoint.
There is only one place the team and NFL are heading. The scrap heap. All so some woke liberals can appease some activists and feel good about themselves despite not creating one extra benefit to the very community they proclaim to support.
