Re: U.S. Patent Office cancels multiple Redskins trademarks
Cannot resist throwing this chum into the water
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder joined the chorus in condemning the Washington Redskins' nickname, calling it offensive and saying it should be changed.
Holder, speaking on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, went one step further than his boss, President Barack Obama, who said in October that the Redskins should consider changing the name. Holder left no doubt where he stood.
"I'm going to speak very personally now," Holder said when asked the question. "The name ought to be changed. It's an offensive name. The Redskins, that organization is a great one. It's a team with a storied history that has huge amounts of support in Washington, D.C., and in the 21st century they could increase their fan base, increase their level of support, if they did something that from my perspective that is so obviously right."
So I guess that pretty much resolves who is right
