Ringo suggests:
The Washington Carvers.

That would be so quickly transmogrified into

===> The Washington Cadavers.

Like they already do to the Cleveland Cavaliers NBA team.

I would certainly like your second suggestion if an apostrophe was added.

How about a compromise?
We can keep the name, but change the logo:

The Washington Redskins will be changing their name soon, and the suggestions I've seen so far are uniformly horrible.

Never really understood the hullaballoo... Its clearly not meant to be disparaging but to pay homage to the bravery and fighting spirit of indigenous peoples. I guess its kind of fucked up to use skin tone specifically, but intent is always important too. Some stereotypes are disparaging but others are flattering. Ever heard a black man complain that there is a stereotype that they are well-endowed? That's weird, me neither.

Well, its a done deal.... Soon the Atlanta Braves, Florida State Seminoles, etc will be changed too soon enough. Just more evidence of recreational whining. Don't like jazz? Oh, you hate it because you're a racist. Like Jazz? You cultural appropriating motherfucker... Can't win. That's the bottom line. Everything you do is bad.

In other news the US Army decided to change the name for the AH-64 attack helicopter from the Apache to the AH-64 Tinkerbell. "Apache" was just too bad ass.... the Army is trying to change its image to a softer, gentler way of warfare that fires fairy dust in lieu of hellfire missiles.

Meh, just another example of white people trying to speak on behalf of another race by talking over them and making decisions for them under the pretense of trying to help them.

Kind of like the Black Lives Matter movement that's been unceremoniously commandeered by guilt-laden whitey's who talk over black people to tell them how oppressed they are. My, my, my.... Malcolm was right.

quote:
The liberal elements of whites are those who have perfected the art of selling themselves to the Negro as a friend of the Negro. Getting sympathy of the Negro, getting the allegiance of the Negro, and getting the mind of the Negro. Then the Negro sides with the white liberal, and the white liberal use the Negro against the white conservative. So that anything that the Negro does is never for his own good, never for his own advancement, never for his own progress, he’s only a pawn in the hands of the white liberal. The worst enemy that the Negro have is this white man that runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negros, and calling himself a liberal, and it is following these white liberals that has perpetuated problems that Negros have. If the Negro wasn’t taken, tricked, or deceived by the white liberal then Negros would get together and solve our own problems. -- Malcolm X

One of the most pernicious forms of White Privilege ironically comes from hijacking the dialogue of the very people they profess to be helping. Can you stand the irony?

My suggestion:
Washington Liberty

Washington Lobbyists

They could always call themselves the Washington Football Club.

There actually is a (British style football, not American style football) team called NYC FC, meaning "New York City Football Club"
