11/26/13 -  Redskins Owner Dan Snyder Says ‘Some of My Best Friends Are Navajo Code Talkers!’  D.C./National
Last night was Dan Snyder’s Thanksgiving gift to America. He told ESPN’s Adam Schefter before the game the name would never change and then hid behind World War II veterans, a profile in cowardice. It does not take a code talker to crack this particular code. Dan Snyder is on the wrong side of history, and his legacy will be more than just year after year of the lousy-to-mediocre football his stewardship has brought. His legacy will be to stand with George Preston Marshall, Tom Yawkey and Kenesaw Mountain Landis on the Mount Rushmore of sports leaders who looked at the idea of racial progress and just said no."

Billy Mills is the only American ever to win the 10,000 meter run Olympic gold medal. His 1964 victory is considered one of the greatest of Olympic upsets.   A former United States Marine, Billy Mills is a member of the Oglala Lakota (Sioux) Tribe.  Amazing video footage of his final lap victory race.

Question - "If you had a chance to sit down with team owner Daniel Snyder, what do you think you would say? " 

Billy Mills - "If he’s made the comments—I’ve never heard him make them, but I’ve read that he has made them—that he does that to honor us. Without understanding the journey of our country and the Holocaust that Native Americans have gone into—I think he’s in the wrong country making that comment. I think he needs to go to Germany and try to have, likewise, a team with a Jewish symbol as a mascot in Germany to say that’s to honor the Jews. That’s the only parallel that can be made. I would try to compare apples with apples and oranges to oranges."   Dec. 6, 2013 - Olympian Billy Mills to Receive the NCAA Theodore Roosevelt Award   "In 2013, President Barack Obama honored Mills with the Presidential Citizens Medal, which is the second highest honor that the president can award a U.S. citizen. The Theodore Roosevelt Award is considered the NCAA’s highest honor."
