The Washington Redskins and Political Correctness During halftime of Game 2 of the National Basketball Association finals, a 30-second spot ran in seven major television markets. It was sponsored by the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation of Native Americans to further what tribal leaders called “an important discussion of racism.” On Wednesday, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board ruled that the term “Redskins” was “disparaging” to “a substantial composite” of Native Americans when trademarks were granted between 1967 and 1990.
