This is something I keep noticing about sports coverage in local and national media. Its the continued use of the word ‘Redskin’ when writing about the NFL Washington’s franchise.
Yes, that is the team’s name. That does not make it right to use that term.
There were many derogatory terms people used when speaking about various nationalities, races and religions. I thought that using those terms today is verboten….for everyone.
Does sports media coverage operate under different rules as everyone else? Apparently. Maybe its time to change that.
