Change the Washington NFL Team Mascot — And Stop Using The Word

Change the MascotDecember 5, 2013 – Segment 3

We return to our discussion on the controversial mascot of the Washington, DC, NFL team, as the Oneida Nation – a 900-member tribe in central New York – is pressuring the NFL and the team’s owner to change the name. Our guests are: Ray Halbritter, Oneida Indian Nation representative and leader of the Change the Mascot campaign; and Rev. Graylan Scott Hagler, Senior Minister of Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ in Washington, DC.
