Simply taking land

Riley Wilson has a confused sense of history in this article about American Football:  http://nocoastbias.com/anti-redskins-ad-airs-last-night-nba-finals/

"...here we are, using a skin color as a mascot for the capitol of a country that was established by simply taking land that wasn’t ours, from the very people we are using as a caricature..."

The Americans did not take the land around Washington from the indigenous inhabitants.

They stole it from the British Crown (who conquered it from the indigenous inhabitants).

And Mr Wilson condemns "...a total lack of understanding of our history".
