Protesters Call for "Redskins" Name Change

Posted: Updated:

In an interview with the Associated Press, President Obama immersed himself in the call for the Washington Redskins to change it's name.

"If I were the owner of the team, I'd think about changing it," says the President.

Even though the name has been called offensive before, many local residents feel very strongly about what they term as too much political correctness in Washington. On the other hand, others claim there is now a need to be aware of different cultures.

Meanwhile, the owner of the Redskins insists that he will not be changing the name, and because the team is privately owned, legally, he does not have to.
