Native Indian Group Denounces "Redskins" Name with Radio Ad Campaign

Isn't it even offensive to call the Indigenous people of this land "American" or "Indians"?

Facts: The country India is located in Asia. They were here before Columbus called this place America. Let's move on...

An American Indian nation in upstate New York is launching a radio campaign asking the Washington Redskins to ditch the Redskins name which they say is offensive. The Oneida Indian Nation plans to run ads on stations in Washington before the team hosts the Philadelphia Eagles Monday night.

A source says CBS Radio Group has received the order for the ads. Among those stations in that group are 95.5 WPGC. We found it unusual that the station's website has not made a BIG DEAL about the upcoming football season opener on Monday Night of the local Washington NFL football team. D.C. is probably more football crazy than any other city in the United States. Maybe the campaign is making a difference...

LISTEN to the ad below:

WPGC has a history of supporting their local NFL team and launched a promotional campaign that confused more than a few listeners when they "changed" the name of the station last season in support of injured Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III a.k.a. RG3. Now with no mention of the Redskins at all, at the beginning of the season is unusual indeed.

The Oneidas have been vocal opponents of the Redskins nickname -- be it for NFL or high school teams. The tribe, which runs a casino and resort in central New York, this year gave $10,000 toward new jerseys to an area high school that changed its nickname from the Redskins to the Hawkeyes.

The Oneida said the first ad will run Sunday and Monday on several stations in Washington. More ads will run in Washington during home games and in the cities hosting the team when it is away. A spokesman for the Oneidas would not say how much the campaign would cost beyond "multiple thousands."

Fans are being urged to lobby the NFL in support of the name change at www.changethemascot.org, a website that debuted Thursday. Redskins owner Dan Snyder has said publicly he will never change the name. The ad asks NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to denounce the racial slur and stand up to bigotry. Here's how to fix it...

Would anyone have a problem with calling the team The Washington Rednecks?
