It’s no secret that the NFL and many others throughout the country hate the Washington Redskins’ nickname. Despite the team having this same nickname for the better part of a half-century, people have always given the franchise flak for it.
Over the last few years, however, the racial tensions in the United States have been heightened over the last few years and that has caused a lot more criticism for the Redskins. The NFL now has one more reason to despise the nickname of Washington D.C.-based team.
BroBible shared a picture of a Redskins’ fan attending Thursday night’s game between the Redskins and the New York Giants. The fan was dressed in a way to support his team, but it also showed his racial bias regarding the team’s name.

With all the crap the team has taken over the last half-decade, you’d think the fan base would be a little smarter in their choice of attire at the games. This surely doesn’t help the team’s case of keeping their nickname intact.
