Drop It

The D.C. city council has passed a measure calling for the Washington Redskins football team to drop the word "Redskins" from its name. "Native Americans throughout the country consider the term 'redskin' a racially derogatory slur akin to the 'N-word' among African-Americans or the 'W-word' among Latinos," said council member David Grasso.
