Poll: 9 in 10 Native Americans Not Offended by Redskins Name

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - A recent national poll finds that nine of 10 Native Americans aren't offended by the Washington Redskins name.
    
The poll conducted by the Washington Post indicated more than eight in 10 say they wouldn't be offended if someone who was not a Native American called them that name.
    
A federal judge ordered the cancellation of the Washington Redskins' trademark registration in July, ruling that their name may be disparaging to Native Americans. The club is appealing.
    
Ninety percent of the random national sample of 504 Native Americans says the name doesn't bother them; 9 percent say it is offensive.
    
Native Americans make up about 2 percent of the U.S. population
    
Interviews were conducted from December through April on landline and cellphones, with a margin of error of plus or minus 5.5 percentage points.
