Redskins Should Change Logo To Sunburned White Person, Comedian Says

As long as the team owner and most Americans persist in supporting the Washington Redskins' controversial name, then comedian Hari Kondabolu has a solution: Keep the name and change the Native American logo to a sunburned white person. Make that a "severely sunburned white person."

Crazy, you say?

That's the comic's point, and he's taking it to social media. He's asking for people to tweet their versions of a sunburned white person logo at the Redskins with the hashtag #newredskinslogo. Some entries will be featured on a new Tumblr.

Kondabolu riffs hilariously in his Upworthy video (above) about the campaign, but he ultimately delivers a serious rebuttal to those who insist that the Redskins and their logo are a longstanding tradition. "It doesn't matter how old your tradition is. If enough people tell you that it's hurting them, maybe you should reevaluate your choices," he states.

Here are a few ideas so far, starting with a logo featuring Redskins owner Dan Snyder.
