David Grosso, a District of Columbia councilman, said Wednesday he plans to introduce a resolution that would call on the Washington Redskins to change their nickname, which he says is “racist and derogatory.”

“It's time to make a change,” Grosso said.

He added a majority of his fellow council members support his resolution and even came up with an alternative nickname: the Redtails, in honor of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Not to mention the fact that "red-tailed hawks are a big deal in D.C. and in the area," Grosso said.
