Lifespan Of Nickname: 1932-Present
If teams like the aforementioned "Darkies" don't exist anymore then why is it fine to have the Redskins? Native American activist groups have been campaigning for years for teams to abandon logos and names (i.e. the Indians, Blackhawks, and Redskins) that are insensitive to their culture. Unfortunately this change doesn't seem like it's going to happen anytime soon. Though offensive, those team names have been around for a while and many owners high-ranking league officials seem unwilling to make the progessive change.
