From The Washington Post:
Hawkins said he wouldn’t have worn his Redskins jacket — at the producers’ insistence — if he had been expecting to square off with Native Americans, especially one of the leading activists against the team name.
If there’s nothing wrong with the jacket or the logo that adorns it, why wouldn’t he wear it in front Native Americans? How can it be claimed that it’s not offensive or derisive to a people if you can’t then wear it in front of them. I think some of these fans are in denial.
