  • Harris Criticizes Biden [semi-satire]

    A photo that appeared in CNN's "Fight for the White House: Joe Biden's Long Journey," showed Biden and his son at a Redskins' football game during the 1970s. His vice-presidential running mate sought to distance herself from what she called "an extremely upsetting demonstration of racial insensitivity on so many levels." "First, there is the egregious exploitation of Native Americans," Harris charged. "Using these noble savages as a team 'mascot' insults their culture. I am shocked that Joe would be a fan of this team and that he would expose his young son to such filth. It is no wonder...

    It seems like a long time ago. But only six months ago, pundits had convinced themselves that the great morality tale of our time was playing out in an obscure part of British Columbia. Following on an internal political fight within the Wet’suwet’en First Nation over a local pipeline project, one columnist wrote that “the Indigenous people of Earth have become the conscience of humanity. In this dire season, it is time to listen to them.”
  • Chiefs to prohibit fans from wearing headdresses, American Indian-themed face paint (Kansas City, MO Football Team)

    The Chiefs announced Thursday a series of sweeping policy changes for fans at Arrowhead Stadium when the national spotlight shifted to Kansas City following the Washington Football Club announcement of their team and logo changes in mid-July. The Chiefs said they are adopting the following measures and policies moving forward: “While we have discouraged fans from wearing headdresses for several years, effective immediately, fans will be prohibited from wearing headdresses into the stadium. Face painting is still allowed for all fans, but any face paint that is styled in a way that references or appropriates American Indian cultures and traditions will...

    The visiting Indians had taken the field in a virtual tie with the White Sox, just .004 percentage points behind Chicago. The Yankees were a half-game behind but had already made up four games in a week, and were throwing their ace, Carl Mays, a sidewinding righty seeking his 19th win. The Tribe jumped on him, though, and led 3-0 through four innings thanks to their own ace, Stan Coveleski, who retired 12 of the 13 batters to face him, including Babe Ruth twice. Leading off the fifth was shortstop Ray Chapman, one of the most well-liked players in baseball,...

    When Secretary Mike Pompeo first set out on this journey to get back to the real heart of human rights, no one could have possibly predicted the year our country would have. Shaken by outrage, unrest, and the growing insistence that America is too flawed to fix, a return to our roots will only dredge up more hard feelings, some say. On the contrary, Pompeo insists. Maybe the best time to revisit all that's pure and good about our nation is when people are determined to destroy it. "Some say the report's timing couldn't be worse," he said. "I say...

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled by a 5-4 margin that nearly half of Oklahoma is an Indian reservation in the eyes of the criminal-justice system, preventing state authorities from prosecuting offenses there that involve Native Americans. The decision was potentially one of the most consequential legal victories for Native Americans in decades. It was written by Justice Neil Gorsuch, a Westerner who has sided with tribes in previous cases and joined the court’s more liberal members.

    Unlike the Washington Redskins, the Atlanta Braves will not consider changing their team name. Though, the organization is discussing whether to keep the traditional “Tomahawk Chop.” “The Atlanta Braves honor, support and value the Native American community. That will never change,” the Braves said in a statement. However, as the Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports, the team is not yet decided about whether to keep the “Tomahawk Chop.”

    Would you be surprised if multinational corporations and wealthy, powerful, mostly white commentators in New York and D.C. got their way over the will of Native Americans on an issue that is mostly about Native Americans? I wouldn’t be. In other words, I won’t be surprised if our wokeness-obsessed corporate titans combine with our ever-leftward-lurching media to strip the Washington Redskins of their name — despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of Native Americans are not offended by it. FedEx, the named sponsor of the stadium where the Redskins play, demanded that the team change its name. Nike won’t...

Soon afterward, he was named team captain, and in 1903 the team was renamed the Cleveland Napoleons (soon shortened to Naps) after a newspaper conducted a write-in contest.

    SANTA FE – New Mexico crossed a grim threshold Monday – more than 100 dead in the coronavirus outbreak, just 35 days after the first fatality in Artesia. The death toll reached 104 on Monday as the state announced five more deaths, all men, ranging in age from their 60s to their 80s. For the most part, New Mexico’s 104 virus victims were older adults with underlying medical conditions – such as diabetes or heart problems. At least 34 lived in group care facilities, where virus outbreaks have proved deadly and difficult to contain. But otherwise healthy New Mexicans in...

    GEORGETOWN (Reuters) - Guyana’s top court on Sunday upheld an injunction blocking the elections commission from proclaiming a winner in this month’s presidential election, delaying the results of a vote that has been marred by accusations of fraud. A protester was killed and demonstrators took to the streets after diplomats described credible evidence of fraud in the vote, which will decide who leads the former British colony that is at the edge of an oil boom set to transform its economy. Chief Justice Roxane George said during a court session on Sunday that she would begin hearing the case on...

    Hundreds of years before Christopher Columbus and his three ships arrived in the New World, a Native American civilization conquered neighboring tribes and expanded its political and cultural influence across what is now the central and southern United States.Historians believe its great metropolis and ceremonial complex at Cahokia in present-day Illinois was, in the 12th century, comparable in size to contemporaneous London. The Mississippians, as they are called, were not the only indigenous American people to conquer others’ land — the Aztecs, Incans, Mayans, and Mohawks did much the same, all before Europeans arrived.Washington Post-contributing David Moscrop, however, thinks...

    When I was a child, Thanksgiving was simple. It was about turkey and dressing, love and laughter, a time for the family to gather around a feast and be thankful for the year that had passed and be hopeful for the year to come. In school, the story we learned was simple, too: Pilgrims and Native Americans came together to give thanks. [SNIP] As Peter C. Mancall, a professor at the University of Southern California, wrote for CNN on Wednesday, Gov. William Bradford would say in his book “Of Plymouth Plantation,” which he began to write in 1630, that the...

    RALEIGH Social studies teacher Keisha Worthey wants her 13-year-old students to consider the Native American perspective as they celebrate the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Worthey asked her students at East Millbrook Middle School in Raleigh to go beyond the traditional story about Pilgrims and their American Indian neighbors celebrating the “First Thanksgiving” in 1621. The seventh-grade students heard about how Thanksgiving is a day of mourning as opposed to a day of celebration among many Native Americans. “Our question for the day is how do we frame the narrative — or the story — of Thanksgiving?” Worthey told her class on...
