I originated from a village where the local high school football team has been called The Lancaster Redskins since their inception. However, now the high school is being pressured to change their name. Truly, I don't understand the reasoning. Am I lacking sophisticated knowledge of the fact concerning this title?
I was always proud to be called a Lancaster Redskin. For me, and for my nephew, who now is playing on the Lancaster Redskins Football Team, and the teenagers at the school are up in arms and disappointed with the looming pressure of a change.
I've never thought of Redskins as derogatory. To me the name induces power, strength, valiance, strategy, determination and more.
