Must-See Video: Taiwanese Animators Take on the Racist Redskins

ICTMN Staff
6/17/13

The Taiwanese company Next Media Animation, which skyrocketed to pop culture cult status with its infamous 2009 Tiger Woods video, has turned its sights on Dan Snyder's NFL Washington Redskins. The resulting animated video, titled "Redskins name is racist against Native Americans and a disgrace to NFL," is, well, something that must be seen to be believed. NMA made some minor noise in Indian country last year with a Super Bowl preview cartoon, but the new anti-Redskins effort takes things to an entirely new level.

Here is the video.

Guess they are desperate for something after the election. The Romney/Obama debate was hysterical, this wasn't so much.

Yes I think the name should be changed and to exploit the Traditional Peoples of this land in a unseen manner to please themselves with the names in which are held sacred to the peoples of this land. Shame on them.

Hey how bout calling the teams, kikes, honkies, etc., or maybe even whiteman. Then at half time everyone can get on to the field and steal pieces of turf to signify their world history.

The Redskins name is not racist. I'm half American native and remember playing with my acyion figures with indians being the "good guys". Later on I lived in the US and was pleasently surprised to find out that a "Redskin" was considered an American icon for victory. That idea was strengthen when Doug Williams won the super bowl. I like to think think the name was coined from the Boston tea party since the team was originally from that city. I don't think it's offrensive to native americans, quite the contrary.

The video shown is not accurate to reality, social or racial, prevalent in the US. Anyone who has lived there can attest to that.

This video was more racist than anything I think I have ever seen. Hope the name changers don't believe this is compelling evidence, or worse that others will buy into such racist propaganda.

The Redskins name is racist and the history behind the name is indeed a disgrace to the NFL. The NFL WA Redskins new name could be the "The True Americans", where they proudly represent the culture, past, present, and future of Native Americans with proud images.

How about we flip the new NFL's Washington Redskins name to "Elitism Schism, Harvard Grads think they own D.C.-ism". Seriously, how about it?
