On Friday, Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), the ranking Member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, called on Congress to have a hearing on the "offensive" and "derogatory" Redskins name.No word yet on why Henry Waxman didn't hold these hearings when he was Chairman? Were was Henry when the chips were down?? No word yet from Barack Obama , the Chicago Blackhawk fan, who the MSNBC types just doesn't want to ask about a Blackhawk name change. Does one-party Chicago want a name change for its' hockey team? Is Chicago run by racists??? How many native Americans appreciate being called a Blackhawk, no matter how Democrats live in Chicago?
In a letter to Committee Chair Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI), Waxman, who will retire when his current term ends, suggested that the NFL is worse than the NBA, which banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life after he was caught on a recording telling V. Stiviano not to bring "black people" to his games.
