Indian nicknames in the news

Recommended Posts

Watching Monday night football....

..wonder who started the "home of the ....Sioux or Chiefs" first?

That was awesome! I rarely partake in the Sioux version, except at Boston, Philly, and definitely Tampa!   That sounds like some die hard fans to me in KC, I think the only people that could bitch about that have to be rival fans that are big time jealous! 

That expression of our freedoms didn't sound disrespectful to me at all! I got chills.

Quote

 

The California Department of Justice concluded a white student was discriminated against and harassed by a Native American lecturer at San Diego State University.

A six-month investigation by the department determined that then-student Crystal Sudano was discriminated against based on race and faced racial harassment and retaliation after challenging the professor’s views.

 

Quote

Monge denied any wrongdoing, writing to the investigators that “It is quite easy to argue that ‘whiteness’ is synonymous with evil.”

Where will they hear it? Won't be on fb, Twitter or any other social media, I'd be willing to bet.

Loved how CBSsports showed so much Fighting Sioux imagery on national TV last night!

I bet someone on here was sobbing all night...

Probably sent an email to tell them to stop!:lol:

Figured I'd post this here. Didn't know where else to stick it.

Guessing someone is unemployed after this dumpster fire!

apparently a B and a W inside a circle inside of a spear constitutes a "mascot" these days.  (Baldwin-Woodville Blackhawks).

Curious as to why Prescott students are protesting the nickname "Chieftains" and not the actual town name - "Osceola?"

Maybe a field trip to 1901 Madison Street Chicago is in order, eh Mr. Ryan?   

On a related note, possibly the best high school nickname in the country:

Nice. Do they ever play the School for the Blind, who I hope to God are nicknamed the Melons?
