A newspaper in the city where the Washington professional football team holds its training camp has stopped using the team's "racist" name.

The Richmond Free Press said the name was offensive to Native Americans. The paper will stop using the R-word and will remove it from its news and editorial pages.

Richmond, Virginia, is about 110 miles south of Washington, D.C.
