Newsclip®: [Sports] Why decency matters more than polls for Redskins’ team name | New York Post

"For years I’ve wondered why only nine out of 10 dentists recommend Crest. Who doesn’t and why? According to “Statista,” in 2011, there were 193,000 dentists in the U.S. That would mean 10 percent of those who don’t recommend Crest — 19,300 of them — could fill Madison Square Garden, provided they pay Jimmy Dolan’s “facility fee.” That’s a lot of dentists. What’s their beef with Crest? Naturally, that brings us to the continuing debate about “Redskins” as an NFL team’s nickname. A new Washington Post poll produced results showing that 90 percent of 504 Native Americans asked don’t mind that name for the team. That also means that 50.4 of the North American Indians polled — we all know folks who are part Indian — found the nickname offensive. From that, we’re to surmise that “Redskins” shall remain an acceptable nickname for Washington’s NFL",
