The name was changed for money, not for justice

It took money to change the name. The Redskins have always been offensive to indigenous people. But it’s only changing now that FedEx, Coca Cola and other sponsors said the endorsements (probably in the millions) are going to stop. I think FedEx was the deciding vote. 

Daniel Snyder’s actions over the last 20 years would say he is a racist. Otherwise, he would have changed the name a long time ago. Losing his endorsement money made him have a change of heart. 

It’s almost like the way Roger Goodell, the NFL commissioner, changed his mind about Colin Kaepernick—a day late and a dollar short. There’s still not one Black partial owner of an NFL team.

Thank God for FedEx, Coca Cola and others for pressuring Daniel Snyder.
