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?"

If the team is racist, can I ask why BET, the Black Music Awards and such are not considered racist? And there are many more.

As a Native American I find this highly offensive. It references a time in American history when the Federal goverment would pay you for the scalp of and Indigenous person. To ensure it wasn't just anbody's scalp, It had to have a piece of visible redskin or you wouldn't get paid.
