The Redskins is a racist team name ... so says Katt Williams who tells TMZ he's SHOCKED that Americans have tolerated such an offensive moniker for so many years. 

Katt -- who wasn't arrested or accused of any wrongdoing last night -- was in Malibu when we asked about the renewed effort to get the team to change its name.

"Do you know how racist that is?" Katt said ... explaining, "That would be like saying the Chinese Yellowskins or the Compton Blackskins."

He added, "Can you please not keep disrespecting the people we already admit we did wrong to?"

I was wondering why no one has brought this up before though actually. But didn't Kat slap a white guy at target? I don't know if it was race motivated but hes always talking about race so I thought it might be? Ohmmeter. Either way, this poor guy ishaving a rough year already.... he needs some help.

The names racist. Ofcourse, but not everything is racist in a hateful or malevolent way. Light hearted racism for jokes is funny and quite frankly true lol. Having said that, the name makes absolutly no sense as a football team. Especialy a football team that represents the USA capitol. Just doesn't make any sense lol. Change it to Washington Senators seeing how baseball has Nationals now and no senators. Or something completly new

20 yrs from now Katt Williams will either be dead or forgotten and the Redskins will still be the Redskins. Wanting something to change is different than having the stroke to change it, he doesn't, neither do the other fools.

Say what you want but he's right and is far from a fool. The media is making him look like a ass just becuase of his power of thoughts. True katt, just like that Jamie fox movie u talked about.

WTF is he talking about "WE" already admit "WE" did wrong too. First off, I've yet to meet a Native Indian with Redskin, second of all, the only one's screaming RACISTS are everyone BUT the Natives. I've got friends that are huge fans of that team, they ain't bitchin' bout the names.
