Redskins Name Debate Reaches United Nations

VERONA, N.Y. — The Oneida Indian leader from upstate New York who has become a high-profile critic of the Washington Redskins’ nickname is taking his case to the United Nations.

The Oneida Indian Nation says Ray Halbritter will meet Friday with the Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights at U.N. headquarters in Manhattan. Halbritter argues that the Washington team’s nickname is racially insensitive and should be changed.
