Letter: Counter-arguments Missing

I recently read the Reston Connection article, "What's Offensive about Redskins Pride?" (July 2-8, 2014) and found it lacked balance. Where were the counter-arguments (in favor of changing the name of the team)? I didn't see any and they're necessary to make a debate credible.
