A Maryland private school has banned students and staff from wearing apparel that contains the Washington Redskins team name or logo.
Green Acres School in North Bethesda said the the name and logo is not only racially offensive, but at odds with their institution’s mission, the Washington Post reported.

The head of the school, Neal M. Brown, announced the decision Friday in a letter to students’ families. Brown believes “Redskin” to be a “racial slur,” and said the team’s logo, at best, promotes “stereotypes and cultural misunderstanding.”
