The general consensus seems to be that the rich white people take up a cause like this in order to avoid doing any real work towards improving the general global situation.

If Native Americans get upset .... then change it.
If they aren't upset ... then don't worry about it.

My concern about this situation is when anyone even implies that anytime someone is offended that means the accused must capitulate.
Probably your biggest lie.
So far I have seen only enraged people from other races.
In context, it's clear the organization never intended to offend with their choice of Redskins but rather quite the opposite.
Now what about that "You people" question?

It's offensive and racist.

So the lesson here is: "Drop all references to Minorities."
Write them out of public life. Don't make ethnically diverse dolls, or your company will get "PC graded" on how badly you missed the mark. Get rid of ethnically diverse cartoons like Speedy Gonzales, or it'll be a caricature. (OMG, a cartoon as a caricature!). Paint all the lawn jockeys white.
You can still have the Minnesota Vikings and Boston Celtics, and Notre Dame fighting Irish; even New York Knickerbockers, wearing the old Dutch Orange.
So the only Minorities you should reference are .... the white ones.
The assumption will be that everyone in the past was white and happy.
