Terminology tells truth

The April 8 FLS editorial is absolutely correct ["Snyder's offensive," April 8].

Let me ask this: If the term "Redskins" isn't racially and culturally offensive, then why didn't Mr. Snyder use that term in his opinion piece and in team press releases on this matter?

Rather, the term he employs is "Native Americans," as it should be. Mr. Snyder already has his answer via his own use of terminology in this regard.

His hubris and myopia on this issue are epic.
