Congress Members Respond to NFL Commissioner's Support for 'Redskins' Name

Two members of Congress, Eni Faleomavaega (D-American Samoa) and Betty McCollum (D-Minnesota) have issued responses to the June 5 letter sent by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell regarding the league's position on the Washington, D.C. franchise's use of the name "Redskins." Goodell wrote in his letter that the term, considered offensive--racist--by many Native Americans, has a "positive meaning." (Read Goodell's entire letter here.)
