Are people getting to sensitive about teams name/ logos?

Ok so I get that some Teams in sports wether it’s professional or not have names that are to much and should be changed because racist views.
Like the Washington Redskins..I Get that it was definitely not a good look and it should have been changed a long time ago. But do we have to shut down teams that really don’t reflect hatred/racism towards anyone.
Like I heard today that people are calling for the Vancouver Canucks to change their logo because it’s looks like old Indian art of a killer whale. Really that offends them more than calling the team the Canucks?
And there was also people calling for the NJ Devils , Duke Blue Devils and any team that uses Devil to change like the Tampa Bay Rays did (they were the Devil Rays..which is an actual fish name) because Devil goes against religious beliefs.
I totally get that times have changed and it’s for the better. We are all one race..The Human Race .And we should all have the same rights no matter color/creed/sexuality or sex. It’s that simple.
But can we not say that everything in life has a hidden meaning and have a little thicker skin in some cases.
Just my opinion.

Read up on the history of how the Washington "Football Team" former nickname Redskins came to be and you'll find it was designed in close consultation with Native American Leaders from the Red Cloud Indian Fund to pay tribute to the past Native Americans in this country. How exactly is that racist now?

Change the name to the "Ragin' Rednecks"

Nobody will care.

Just because one tribe said it was okay doesn’t mean every tribe will agree. That’s how. Plus if that was the case why was there so much outcry?

Only team I’m concerned with is the Kansas City Chiefs. If there is a push to change something I hope they keep “Chiefs” and go with a Fireman theme instead.

There is some room for change in certain names and logos. But there is absolutely nothing wrong with the Chiefs name or logo.
