HERE’S A VOTE TO RENAME THE TEAM RED TAILS IN HONOR OF TUSKEGEE AIRMEN!

By Michael Grimm

It looks like tone-deaf owner Dan Snyder has finally realized that he has to change the team’s name from Redskins, which is a racist memory of the George Preston Marshall past.

So, what should the name be changed to?

Second-year quarterback Dwayne Haskins likes Red Tails.

This is one of that popped up a lot online and for good reason.

The name comes from the planes the Tuskegee Airmen piloted during World War II.

Not only were they the first black aviators in the United States Armed Forces, three of the members were actually from Washington, giving this name deep roots to the city and history.

With all the recent protests and events revolving around the Black Lives Matter movement and this being a complete 180 from their past name, it’s definitely a yes for me.
