According to the plaintiff in the Redskins trademark lawsuit. This only strengthens the case of those who have been pushing the "slippery slope" argument and have said that this would never end with just the Redskins.
The Washington Redskins aren't the only NFL team whose name bothers some Native Americans.
The Kansas City Chiefs should also change their name to avoid giving offense, according to Amanda Blackhorse, the lead plaintiff in the case that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office just decided against the Redskins.
"I'm not sure there's anything the [Chiefs] can do at this point other than look for another name," Blackhorse told the Kansas City Star. "They could be the team that says, 'You know what? We understand the issue and we don't want to be Dan Snyder and fight this in court forever. We want to do the right thing and move forward and avoid this entire battle.' I'm sure fans will be upset, but still, that's doing the right thing. If they want to be sensitive to Native American people, that's the thing to do."
Blackhorse's sister, Kristy Blackhorse, is part of a group of Native Americans in Arizona who plan to protest at two Cardinals games this season — not only when the Redskins come to town in October, but also when the Chiefs come to town in December.
