@OFFLINEX, actually it's been a problem for years and many, many *have* seen a problem with it. Just that, in the many cases they`ve files (see my previous link in a comment below), they`ve never gotten any traction. Now when they do, they`re called liberal Johnny-come-latelys when, in fact, it`s an issue that dates back for over four decades.
All of the issues you cite are all issues dealing with a citizens rights. The name of a team just because it is offensive does not infringe upon the rights of anyone, it does not keep you from voting or leading a full and happy life. The perceived slur is not even recognized by most as a slur, so those who did see it as a slur had to educate others about it. They made a problem from NOTHING!
