Hundreds of people gathered Thursday at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian for a discussion of sports teams' use of racially insensitive imagery that, as such discussions often do, turned into an ongoing complaint against a certain Washington football team's continued use of a certain Indian-inspired nickname.
E. Newton Jackson, a professor of sports management at the University of North Florida, said that one reason some fans have resisted changing the name is that they confuse loyalty to the name with loyalty to the team.
"A lot of institutions have not quite accepted the dialogue that there are some issues with race and ethnicity," he said.
