    • Great article, Lucas. You did a good job on pointing out how sports teams are not really doing much about sensitive sports names. However I feel as if currently teams are beginning to recognize this and change their team names, like Washington Football Team. Overall great post.

    • great job lucas you did a great job addressing the problem of these offensive term names. I like how you mentioned that it is not just only a problem with the national football league but in other leagues as well.
      One sentence that stood out to me was” A history of racially insensitive team names and mascots in professional sports has persisted far beyond the time when it was acceptable.” I like how you recognize how this fix is long over due. thankyou for writing this interesting article. i look forward to reading others as you have the same interest as I do.

    • Lucas, I really enjoyed your article and calling out these large sports teams for having insensitive names. It is very unsettling knowing these names have been around for a while now and people are just now beginning to see the problem. I really liked how you pointed out the need to spread awareness about why these names are offensive and should be changed.

    • I agree with this article because it shows the insensitivity of our society when it comes to certain aspects, especially offensive names within sports. I like how you mentioned that it is not just only a problem with the national football league but in other leagues as well.
