Over the past few years, there has been a growing movement to fight back against some of the everyday racism that exists in America.
The Washington Redskins of the NFL have temporarily changed their name to the Washington Football Team until a more suitable, and less racist, name is determined.
The Dixie Chicks, a country band from Texas has decided to change their name to The Chicks to avoid any connotation with slavery, as has Lady Antebellum who now just go by Lady A.
(Although they stole the name form a Black woman who has been using it for over 20 years.)
