You can't judge people from generations ago by today's standards. 

You can't judge people from a few years ago by today's standards or Joe Biden would be labeled a racist.

With that said, times change and what is considered right/wrong changes. The time for Snyder to change the name has come and I'm pretty confident it will happen sooner rather than later.

I can't judge the last NFL team to integrate its roster? 

No, I'm sorry. I think I can. 

What about the second to last team or third to last team and so on? At what point do you stop judging teams that at some point didn't integrate?

I'm not arguing that standards change and evolve from generation to generation.  I've always had a problem with going into history and judging historic figures by todays standards.  In this case Marshall was a racist by the standards of his era, as there was a 7 year gap between all other NFL teams and the Redskins in signing minority players.

True but I'd bet the vast majority of those owners were racists.

I mean the Giants still haven't had a black head coach or a black starting QB unless you count that one time Geno Smith started and got benched by ownership the next week.
