New ad asking Redskins to change the name

The Oneida Change the Mascot campaign has a new ad out asking the Washington ‘Skins to change the name of the team. It’s simple and effective, though I doubt it will sway the minds of those who now see keeping the name as a matter of principle. The Oneida did not get permission from the NFL to use this footage so I don’t know how long this ad will last. Here it is.
