DeEvening Links: What’s in a name

Jim Vance uses the uproar over that pretty darn racist ESPN headline about Knicks phenom Jeremy Lin to make a pretty darn valid point: We have an entire football team with a pretty darn racist name! Dan Steinberg points out why what Vance says matters, noting that he “works for a network that is corporate partners with the Redskins, is pretty close friends with Joe Gibbs, and was part of the panel that once chose the 70 greatest Redskins in honor of the team’s 70th anniversary.”
