The Taiwanese company Next Media Animation gained pop culture cult status in 2009 with its infamous Tiger Woods video. NMA is now focusing on Dan Snyder's NFL Washington Redskins with a new animated video:
"Redskins name is racist against Native Americans and a disgrace to NFL"
It's 2013, and Washington's NFL team still uses the racist name, Redskins. After pressure from some in Congress to make a change, the Redskins hired political pollster Frank Luntz to spin the Redskin's name. Luntz then trotted out NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who said the Redskins' name is "a unifying force that stands for strength, courage, pride and respect."
Last year, Next Media Animation made noise in Indian country with a Super Bowl preview cartoon, but the new anti-Redskins effort takes things to an entirely new level.
