Slate Won't Call NFL Team 'Redskins' Any More: "This is the last Slate article that will refer to the Washington NFL team as the Redskins," writes David Plotz. "Americans think differently about race and the language of race than we did 80 years ago. We now live in a world, for instance, in which it's absolutely unacceptable for an NFL player to utter a racial slur. Changing the way we talk is not political correctness run amok. It reflects an admirable willingness to acknowledge others who once were barely visible to the dominant culture, and to recognize that something that may seem innocent to you may be painful to others."
