Dan Bongino: Following the Washington Redskins folding on changing its name, activists have been pressuring other sports teams with names referring to Native Americans to change their names as well. However, Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves have no plans to do this.

TheBlaze reports from ESPN that the Braves sent an email to season ticket-holders saying that while the team is looking at the future of the Tomahawk Chop, a forearm-forward motion with a wordless stereotypical Native American chant employed during games, the team is sticking with its name.

SNIP: I hope so. But why should I believe they wouldn’t cave?
