Matthew McConaughey Tried To Defend The Redskins’ Racist Team Name To GQ

  • Matthew McConaughey weighed in on the campaign to change the name of the Redskins football team. The team’s name is a racial slur, but apparently McConaughey just doesn’t care. He told GQ: “I know a lot of Native Americans don’t have a problem with it, but they’re not going to say, ‘No, we really want the name.’ That’s not how they’re going to use their pulpit…What interests me is how quickly it got pushed into the social consciousness. We were all fine with it since the 1930s, and all of a sudden we go, ‘No, gotta change it’? It seems like when the first levee breaks, everybody gets on board. I love the emblem. I dig it. It gives me a little fire and some oomph. But now that it’s in the court of public opinion, it’s going to change. I wish it wouldn’t, but it will.” Ugh. [Gawker]
