Liberal HS Pays Attention To Battle Over “Redskins” Nickname

Liberal, KS (westernkansasnews.com) Is using the nickname “Redskins” a racial slur? While the Washington Redskins were battling the court of public opinion last week after losing their federal trademarks another local team looked on with interest.

 

Liberal Redskins Athletics Director Rollie Van Wyhe is waiting to see what happens.

Nationally 62 schools have the nickname Redskins.  The exact origin of the nickname in Liberal is unclear.
