The Washington Redskins have suffered yet another legal blow in a two-decade war over their team mascot — this time in federal court.

Kojo explores the significance of the ruling amid growing national momentum against offensive symbols, and finds out how the controversy over the team’s mascot could affect plans for the team’s stadium in the metro region.
