This morning the Washington Redskins announced that they’d be capitulating to activists and changing the name of the team (as soon as some copyright issues are worked out).
Even though the Redskins name change hasn’t even yet taken place, sights are being set on other teams with names deemed problematic:
Opinion: The Texas Rangers’ team name must go.
Members of the Texas Rangers force were violent agents of white supremacy. https://t.co/qaFCq7yU0A

We couldn’t be less surprised.
Redskins haven't announced their new name and we're already moving on to the next outrage.
It's almost like the point is to be outraged all the time. https://t.co/HXa0Q4EMmU

Opinion: The Minnesota Vikings' team name must go.
Vikings were feared mass murderers who due to their whiteness have been revered by history, but they were violent rapists. https://t.co/ErR3jrXXPG
