News: A group of U.S. senators is calling on the Washington Redskins football team to change their name, citing the current name constitutes a racial slur.
Comment: Whether or not the team should change its name is masking a bigger issue. These lawmakers have no problem when one of their own makes racially disparaging comments against the President, fellow senators, and others.
Instead of this constant and convenient grab for the spotlight, lawmakers would be wise to first get their own house in order.
