I think if you did a poll of most Native Americans you would find they either like the name or don’t care about football.
There is nothing wrong with a sports team representing(in name) native Americans, just as there is nothing wrong with a sports team representing patriots, or cowboys. Although the home of the first two stands some scrutiny. Such is the nature of sports rivalry.
Still 91% of native Americans support Indian mascots.
Why because a mascout is not a degenerating symbole, its a symole of pride. RedSkin fans don’t degerate the redskins they celebrate them
These mindless attacks on traditional names, identifications & ethnic pride, say a lot about those who engage in them. But some folk are just too stupid to even recognize that they are displaying stupidity!
What frosts me is that some refer to this amalgam of assorted idiots, loonies and communists as the ‘Democratic’ Party.
