Henry Waxman wants hearing on Redskins


California Rep. Henry Waxman is the latest lawmaker to weigh in on the controversy surrounding the NFL’s Washington Redskins team name, asking to bring the issue before a House panel hearing.

“Offensive remarks by Donald Sterling, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association, have raised public awareness of racism in sports,” Waxman, the ranking Democrat on the House Committee on Energy Commerce, wrote in a letter Friday to Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.)

“In the case of the Washington football team, the offensive conduct is public, not private. But it is being condoned and defended by National Football League,” Waxman wrote.

Waxman, who slams the Redskins name as derogatory and offensive, calls for a hearing by the House Energy and Commerce committee, which he said has “primary jurisdiction over professional sports.”

Echoing remarks made by last week Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Waxman criticized both NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Redskins owner Dan Snyder for not changing the name.

“[The committee] could play a constructive role in challenging racism by asking Mr. Snyder and Mr. Goodell to explain in a public hearing how their actions are consistent with the public interest,”

They should buy the team and change the name. Let's see how long the team remains solvent when they change the name.
