Going Native: Losing the Hate

 

November 19, 2018



National Football League owners are reacting to Washington, D.C. team owner Daniel Snyder’s plans to rebuild Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium and move his callously named team back to the nation’s capital with a shrug. But American Indian tribes, along with anti-racist organizations, have begun a national movement to stop him.

For decades, the Washington team (I refuse to state the name) played at RFK Stadium, within the borders of the District of Columbia—terribly ironic given the former U.S. Attorney General’s commitment to racial and social justice. But since 1997, the team has played at FedExField in Landover, Maryland.
