Via BOTW, according to this story in Friday's Cavalier Daily, President Casteen at the University of Virginia has denounced the statement of a University Medical Center employee, who at a recent staff meeting declared that the use of the term "Redskins" was likely as insulting to Native Americans as another racial term would be to African-Americans. A protest organizer explained, "It doesn't really matter in what context this word was used."
