Eagles offensive lineman says he will not use the term Redskins

Allen Barbre will not use the term Redskins when playing them this year

Allen Barbre will not use the term Redskins when playing them this year

Redskins is a term that offends some of the Native American people, and one player that will never use the term even when playing against them is Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Allen Barbre.

Eagles guard Allen Barbre, who’s a Native American and has a grandfather living on the Tunica-Biloxi Indian Reservation, refuses to use the term Redskins.

“It’s probably offensive to some people, and I can see why,” Barbre said, via NJ.com. “It’s certainly a derogatory term from back in the day, but I never put a lot into it. As a matter of fact, though, I just don’t say it. I don’t use the word.”
