Marion Barry waded into the controversial waters of the Redskins name Friday, sending a flurry of tweets that touched on race and challenged team owner Daniel Snyder to pick a name that would make everyone proud.

“It’s Super Bowl time. 4 Washington, we should reflect not on the loss of games, but our loss of honor. Dan, YOU CAN redeem it. Do what’s right,” the D.C. Council member and former mayor tweeted Friday morning, followed by, “C’mon Dan. Let’s elevate this conversation. Do you want to be remembered as stubborn or loved for standing up against a racist past?” …

“I do note that most of the people who dont want to change the name haven’t been the subject of slurs. Walk in our shoes to know how it feels,” read one tweet. Another: “Why do these Whiteskins on twitter get so angry when someone challenges them on their cont. use of Redskins slur? Doesn’t sound nice does it?”
