Use Of "Redskins" Banned In Detroit News

(Washington, DC) -- The "Detroit News" is joining the growing movement to ban the name "Redskins." A memo released by the company says the paper will instead refer to the NFL franchise as "Washington football team." It will still use Washington Redskins in stories referring to the controversy over the name. The Washington Redskins name has been the subject of debate about whether or not it's offensive to Native Americans.
