Snyder religiously defended the team’s name saying that the name is not disparaging to Native Americans; but that it tis a term of endearment.

"It's just historical truths, and I'd like them to understand, as I think most do, that the name really means honor, respect," Snyder told ESPN's John Barr.

At one point in the interview, Snyder was asked by Barr ‘What is a Redskin’?

Listen to his response.

My God, this guy couldn't be more obtuse. What a completely ridiculous diversionary attempt from history.

Snyder is ignorant, maybe he should change the name to Whiteskins to honor the Americans.

the horror, the horror….yellow meat journalism brought on - on behalf of ICTMN Staff. It should be obvious, he is talking about FOOTBALL whereas ESPN threw the term "redskin" to see what would be responded to. I don't blame ICTMN for not acknowledging a title or name of the writer. BTW, the Red Mesa Redskins, Arizona will be playing Monument Valley in Kayenta, AZ this Friday, Sept 5th and will be in Red Mesa, AZ playing hte Ganado Hornets on Sept 12th. "hail the Redskins".
