Is the name 'Redskins' our biggest problem?

There was a photo in The Free Lance-Star on Oct. 6 that showed "Chief Zee" Williams signing autographs on 2012 Fan Appreciation Day at Redskins Park in Ashburn.

An article on the same page stated that President Obama said he "would think about changing" the Washington Redskins name if he owned the football team.

I've been a Redskins fan since 1966 and don't understand why it is important to some people to change the name.

Of all the problems in the world, even in the United States, I think people should give it a break and enjoy the football game and the Washington Redskins.
