Video: These Words Are Rightly Banned, But 'Redskins' Is OK?

Here's a thought-provoking video released by the Red Circle Agency and the National Coalition Against Racism in Sports and Media in the US.

Chad Germann, owner of Red Circle and a Native American himself said in a statement: “I was tired of people avoiding what I think is the real issue. There is no word in the American lexicon that is more hurtful to the Native American.”

No word is as offensive, yet it's still the nickname of one of the best-known sporting franchises in the United States. Protesters are planning a demonstration against the continued use 'Redskins' before their game against the Vikings on Sunday.
