Washington Post Editorial Board: We Will No Longer Call "The Redskins" the Redskins
But The News and Sports Divisions Will Continue to Call Them That, Like, Every Single Day n' Stuff

A firm, pointless stand.

The Washington Post editorial board said Friday it will stop using the word "Redskins" when referring to Washington’s football team, joining a growing list of other commentators who have renounced the term because they believe it disparages Native Americans.

...

The editorial board is separate from the news-gathering side of the organization, which executive editor Marty Baron said will continue to use the team’s moniker.

Ummm... how often does the editorial board have cause to even mention the Washington Redskins, apart from the occasional denunciation of the name "the Redskins"?
