Major shade thrown at Washington DC NFL team; The Daily Show, South Park weigh in on racist name & indefensible positions

Did you catch The Daily Show tonight (the link takes you to tonight’s clip)? Or how about South Park yesterday (or its teaser earlier this week)? A few months ago, John Oliver did a nice piece using the National Congress of American Indians #ProudToBe video.

When parody TV takes notice (well, let’s be honest: When popular white folks take notice…) it’s downhill from there. It’s nice to have allies, but what was so great about tonight’s Daily Show segment was it used real, live, honest-to-goodness Native people on the show. #concept

Dan Snyder and his racists R**skins are going down. Just a matter of time.

  1. I’m a Wasichu, but firmly believe in having respect for all Native American issues and traditions. If this logo is considered offensive, GET RID OF IT! We owe the Native Americans more than I can count. Most people don’t realize that our form of democracy was based partly on Native American Tribal leadership back from the 1600’s. Bottom line, learn before you speak…and respect what you’ve learned
