Redskins name change demanded by David Grosso of D.C. Council
A D.C. councilmember plans to introduce a resolution that calls on the Washington Redskins to change their name.
Councilmember David Grosso (GRAH'-so), an at-large independent, says the name is "racist and derogatory," and that "it's time to make a change."
Grosso says a majority of his fellow councilmembers have agreed to co-sponsor the nonbinding resolution.
The team's nickname has been the subject of renewed debate in recent months. A group of Native Americans has launched a new court battle to deny the team federal trademark protection, which would essentially force a name change.
Grosso's resolution suggests "Redtails" as a new nickname. He says it would honor the Tuskegee Airmen and allow the team to maintain its fight song and color scheme with a few minor changes.
