image for Redskins Now Have Second Name Change

Due to protests from Native Americans, the name of the Washington Redskins was to be changed to "The Fighting Whities," and, for next season, fans were going to be encouraged to pain their faces white instead of the usual red as they did when they were named the Redskins.

There were no organized complaints from African-American players who make up the vast, vast majority of the team.

But now, after nation-wide protests among communities of color led by Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, the 'skins have once again changed their name from the Washington Redskins. This time they will be called the "Washington Blacks."

Fans will be urged to paint their faces in black, even those who come to games wearing the traditional Indian feathers in their hair.
