This is getting some attention. Better than paying 4Million for a 30 second ad on NBC.

Here is one ad that never aired during this year’s Super Bowl:

The Proud to Be video was made by Change the Mascot, a national campaign that was launched by the Oneida Nation. The video was released by the National Congress of American Indians a couple of days before this year’s Super Bowl. Change the Mascot’s aim is to end the use of the term “redskins” as the mascot for Washington, D. C.’s NFL team. The campaign “calls upon the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell to do the right thing and bring an end the use of the racial epithet.”

    Thanks. It is strange that we would hold onto these stereotypes so passionately over the name of a football team. I think maybe the “Washington Grafters” would do as well?
