More than a game

The Washington Post writer Eugene Robinson reminds us in “Hail to the Washingtons” that it’s not just about sports and we cannot continue to play the game of race (i.e. denial, silent acceptance, blame- shifting, ‘historical fantasy’) as usual.  The use of the racial slur ‘red skin’ is inappropriate in every other context and should never be said in support of anything– much less a football team and its players.  No matter how much we have tried to just focus on the game, the professional football league is behaving unprofessionally in its continued acceptance of the use of the slur.  #race-lesssports
