Due to protests from native Americans, the name of the Washington Redskins will be changed to the "The Fighting Whities," in spite of the fact that the majority of players are black. There has been no organized protest among the black players.

Perhaps black WR Leonard Hankerson best summed up why there has been no opposition from his teammates:

"It's better to have the name 'Fighting Whities,' than 'The Destructive Darkies.' Man, that would be really racist. It would bring back memories that the Redskins were the last team to integrate in the NFL."

Traditionally, Redskin fans have painted their faces red and stuck feathers in their hair. Predictions are that they will now paint their faces white and forgo the feathers.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
