About 5,000 demonstrators marched on TCF Bank Stadium on Nov. 2 before the Vikings game against the Washington football team. They were protesting the name of the team, which they decry as a racial slur.

In this episode, the Counter Stories panel is joined by David Glass, president of the National Coalition on Racism in Sports and Media, and co-organizer of the "Not Your Mascot" march and rally.

The panel reflects on the demonstration's impact and where the movement goes from here.

And, what's behind "Pointergate."
