There has long been controversy over sports teams that use Native American names.
Now a new song may add salt to the wound for many Native Americans.
It's called "¡Viva Los Redskins!" a new Spanish-language translation of the Washington, D.C., football team's fight song.
The team plans to play the Spanish-language version of their team song during Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals and they also are launching a Spanish-language site for the team, according to The Washington Post.
It's being unveiled in time for Hispanic Heritage Month.
There is something ironic about that, especially considering many Latinos have indigenous roots or are mestizo, a blending of European and indigenous ancestry.
The song was created by Michael Garin, José Antonio (Tony) Melián and Matt Rocker and you can hear it on their website.
It's clear they are diehard fans of this team. But I wonder if they considered the cultural implications of this song.
In general, I'm in favor of bilingualism and the idea of a Spanish-language version of a team song. I support other teams that have created bilingual shirts, like the NBA's Phoenix Suns, that took a stand by wearing their "Los Suns" shirts after Arizona passed the controversial immigration law S.B. 1070.
It's impossible to celebrate the song for this football team, whose name has generated controversy and pain.
Call me politically correct. But a Native American person will tell you that the name of this football team is the most racist name you can call them.
Lo siento. I can't bailar or celebrar this song.
