In sports news, the Washington R*dsk*ns NFL franchise will change its racist name, which it’s held since 1933. ESPN reports the team hasn’t yet decided on a new mascot but will include the military in its new name. Indigenous campaigners celebrated the move as long overdue and are calling for the Kansas City NFL franchise to follow suit. Navajo Nation activist Amanda Blackhorse tweeted, “It’s time for the Chiefs to defuse the cultural offenses they enable and reflect #NotYourChief.”
