Hail to the Redskins? Public Reactions to a Racially Sensitive Team Name.
Sigelman, Lee
Sociology of Sport Journal, v15 n4 p317-25 1998
Examined public attitudes toward a frequently-objected-to football team name, the Redskins. Data from a national and a local survey indicate that few members of the general public see any need to change the name. Support for a name change is significantly higher among racial or ethnic minorities, the more highly educated, and those who are not football fans. (SM)
