Political cartoon compares Redskins logo to swastika, confederate flag

WASHINGTON -

The Redskins name debate just isn't going away.

A new political cartoon in the New York Daily News is raising eyebrows by comparing the Skins logo to a swastika and the confederate flag.

FOX 5 reached out to a number of businesses that advertise at Fed-Ex Field, the home stadium of the Redskins, to see if the name bothered them.

They either had no comment on the issue but offered support for the team and the partnership - or didn't call us back altogether.

In a related story, The Richmond Free Press is dropping the Redskins nickname for the Washington NFL team from its pages, calling it racist.

In an editorial Thursday, the weekly primarily aimed at the city's African-American community called the name insulting to Native Americans and divisive.
