If one of the most inappropriate characters on TV can agree that the Redskins is a derogatory name, then maybe it’s time for Redskins owner, Dan Synder, should strongly consider that it’s time for a name change.

While the mind of Mr. Burns clearly recognizes the how horrible the word is, the real world is also picking up on the fact that maybe it’s not the nicest way to refer to a group of people. The Washington Post has already confirmed that they will no longer be using the word unless absolutely necessary. Since the Post is one of the largest newspaper publications in the country, this definitely seems like another step in the right direction. The real glaring fact is that Snyder has been called out by the Simpsons, which means a change has to be made!
