Heartland Research Director S. T. Karnick was a guest on WJR-AM in Detroit today with host Frank Beckmann to talk about his latest piece from over the weekend in the Daily Caller titled, “The Real Reason the Argument Over the Redskins’ Name Matters.”
From the piece:
In response to charges that the Washington Redskins’ team name is racist, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to members of Congress on Wednesday defending the name as a “unifying force that stands for strength, courage, pride and respect.” Redskins owner Dan Snyder has vowed never to change the team’s name.
This is an important issue, but not for the reason most people assume. It’s important because of its implications for the role of government in our lives.
