Erik Bradly, USA Today -- The Oneida Indian Nation is scheduled to meet with human rights representatives of the United Nations on Friday to discuss the Washington NFL club's team name - and the team says the U.N. should be working on world peace.
Oneida Nation representative Ray Halbritter is set to speak with Ivan Simonovic, Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights at the U.N. in New York, just as the National Football League is preparing for its seminal event, the Super Bowl, with events in New York and northern New Jersey all next week.

Oneida Indians to meet with U.N. over Redskins name
It's an interesting story, but the UN has no power in our country. I am not sure what they could possibly do in this situation? If the Washington Redskins don't have any intention of changing their names, I am not sure what the UN could or would do. The UN has no power to compel people in the USA to do anything. Thoughts?
