Well, this did not get a lot of publicity but it is important. POTUS thinks offensive names deserve to be consigned to the bins of history. Team owners, managers, players–all sports–are you listening? If any of you think this was some sort of off the cuff comment, wake up. Racism is still far too alive and present in major USA sports. Both the interviewer and Obama gave this topic time and attention.
Now it is time for the owners to make the changes. Fans–suggestion: stop buying team merchandise. Support the team with the colors but get the owners’ attentions by impacting their bottom line profits.
