The Oneida Nation’s campaign to convince the NFL Washington Redskins to change their name because it’s offensive to Native Americans received a big boost this weekend with an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press.

The hype began with an in-depth interview President Obama did with the Associate Press.  When asked about the Redskins controversy, the President said, if he owned the team, he “would consider changing the name.”

Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC aired a news package on the topic that featured Oneida Nation CEO Ray Halbritter.  Halbritter said, “Any other group or ethnic group would not tolerate this type of language.

Redskins owner Dan Snyder said he would never change the name; meanwhile, nearly 70% of Americans polled say they don’t support a name change.
