Robo you may be right!
I think team names like Chiefs and Braves, while referring to a culture not their own, at least refer to content of character, unlike the DC American-football team, which refers to color of skin. Quite different, imnsho.
But I still bet that the DC team is planning to go back to their old name "once this nonsense blows over" and say the fans demanded it, à la New Coke, which I predicted at the time.
But this ain't nonsense and it ain't blowing over. Not this time. I fervently hope.
