Associated Press – Native American leaders and activists criticized a recent national poll that found nine of 10 Native Americans aren’t offended by the Washington Redskins’ name. On a conference call held Friday by the National Congress of American Indians and “Change the Mascot” campaign, panelists voiced opposition to a Washington Post poll that surveyed 504 Native Americans, 90 percent of whom said the name doesn’t bother them. James Fenelon, a California State San Bernardino sociology professor, called the poll “immoral,” adding it was not representative of Native American communities.
