PETA is jumping in on the debate of the team name, the Washington Redskins.

The argument is the racial context the name gives but PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is arguing that the team should keep their name and swtich their mascot and logo up a potato.


The Redskin potato would be a noble mascot for a variety of reasons. Potatoes are also native Americans, having been cultivated in Peru for millennia. A tasty, versatile, animal- and environmentally friendly vegan staple, potatoes are now the most popular vegetable in the U.S. They are loaded with nutrients, including iron, potassium, vitamin C, fiber, and even protein, and red potatoes in particular are high in antioxidants. (Take that, Cheeseheads.)

What do you think Redskins fans? How about a potato as your logo and mascot?
