Bush says NFL's Washington Redskins name not offensive
MIAMI -- Delving into a decades-long controversy, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said the name of the Washington Redskins football team is not offensive to Native Americans.
"It's a sport, for crying out loud. It's a football team. I'm missing something here, I guess," Bush told "The Arena," a new SiriusXM radio show, in a pre-recorded interview that airs Friday. An interview transcript was released Wednesday by SiriusXM.
"I don't think (the team) should change it," said Bush when asked whether the football team should drop the name, which some Native Americans find offensive.
