When the Redskins drop their name, they’ll need a new one. I suggest the Washington Wildebeest (”Football’s most racist team name deserves a swifter retirement,” July 6).
Why? First, the alliteration works well. Second, the wildebeest (also called the gnu) is a ferocious and aggressive animal — a good icon for a football team. Finally, if someone should purchase bootlegged sweatshirts or other ersatz team paraphernalia, you could call the phony product “fake gnus.”
