This morning the Washington Redskins announced that theyâ€™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 hasnâ€™t even yet taken place, sights are being set on other teams with names deemed problematic:
Opinion: The Texas Rangersâ€™ team name must go.
Members of the Texas Rangers force were violent agents of white supremacy. https://t.co/qaFCq7yU0A

We couldnâ€™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
