Fighting to Remove Racist Names and Mascots in the NFL on Uprfront



The Washington, D.C. NFL team has dropped a vicious anti-Indigenous racial slur from its name, after years of organizing and legal action by Indigenous organizers and tribal nations as well as court cases. But Jacqueline Keeler (@jfkeeler) says this moment is only possible because of the reckoning caused by the Black activists organizing after the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. Keeler is a writer and activist of Diné and Ihanktonwan Dakota heritage, co-founder of Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry, and editor in chief of Pollen Nation Magazine.
