Lakers President Jeanie Buss recently drafted her fantasy football team, but also decided to make a little protest while doing so:

There has been a major controversy regarding the Redskins name and mascot over many years. Many organizations and influential people have spoken out about the need to change the name as it is viewed as derogatory towards Native Americans.

Buss is apparently one of those who feels its time for the Redskins name to go away, and although it is a small protest, the fact that she wanted to announce it to the world via Twitter shows that she does want her voice to be heard.

Washington owner Daniel Snyder has continually refused to change the name of the team, stating that it was chosen as a way to honor Native Americans, and that the fans have a personal connection and history with the team.

It takes a lot of courage to voice your opinion on controversial topics, especially when you are in control of another franchise. But Jeanie Buss clearly has no fear about supporting what she believes to be right in the world.
