Breaking Bad’s Jonathan Banks Calls for Redskins Name Change

Libations, TV, Video

Jonathan Banks, better known to fans of Breaking Bad as the no-nonsense ‘cleaner’ Mike Ehrmantraut, has called for the Washington Redskins to change their name. Banks sat down recently on comedian Paul F. Tompkins’ interview series Speakeasy, and the D.C. native and longtime football fan quickly joined the growing chorus of people asking the for a new, less racially insensitive, name for the team.

“Even if there are two American Indians out there who don’t want to be called Redskins, just change the name,” Banks said.

No half measures, Dan Snyder.

And that's the problem. the minority crowd get the limelight.  WE don't care about any so called celeb's opinion no more than they do ours. KEEP THE NAME......besides, just give the indians more booze and they'll be too drunk to even care!!!! But even if 2 want to "change" the current fool in office, can we do that ???

I think that they should alter the name to Washington Foreskins. But, that might piss off the millions of pricks in the country and they would have to just change it again.

@dahlqvist Yes, how Gestapo of people to say that we shouldn't have racist team names. That is just what the Gestapo was best known for.

@Ericfollowedbyanumber @dahlqvist So why didn't anyone ever want the name change before the last few years???? Maybe having a half white/black guy for president had something to do with it? it IS for p.c.
