The Washington Redskins are one of four NFL teams that do not have a mascot. Until his death in 2016, an African-American man named Zema Williams (aka Chief Zee) was the unofficial mascot of the Redskins, dressing up in Native American costume, with a war bonnet and rubber tomahawk. The Redskins have been under pressure to change their name from those who find it offensive and demeaning to Native Americans.
