Recommended Posts

Please explain to me why we have to get rid of our names cause the natives say its offensive but yet watching the ND class B tourney and seeing the Four Winds INDIANS?:D Double standard? Where were the protesters? Oh but Cleveland can't be the Indians. :ohmy:

Is this logo acceptable to the Native American people? Maybe the Sioux should change their name to the Indians and have this logo?? Works for Four Winds

If you cannot figure that out for yourself you need to turn your hood around so the eyeholes are in the front. A good new name for the UND teams would be the Fighting Racists or the Fighting Klan.

Just tell your son that if you complain and are in the total minority you can get your way. There is no majority rule when it comes to PC. Those people should be on a deserted island somewhere where they can just bitch to each other and no one would care.

The majority also said it was ok to have slaves.

Actually the minority said it was okay to have slaves..remember the civil war?? If majority ruled on slavery Abe Lincoln would have agreed that slavery was okay. Open a history book. :ohmy::D

Fighting Klan??? So all Indian nicknames are racists??? Seminoles, Utes, Chippewas? So you drive up to Belcourt, ND and tell them they are racists cause they have an Indian nickname, and see what they say to you. :ohmy:

A majority of african americans said it was okay to have slaves? I didn't know that. You learn something new every day.

I did know, however, that a majority of american indians have said that it is okay for sports teams to use names and logos such as UND's. Even those in North Dakota.

Who cares what that majority thinks! They don't call them the "ignorant masses" for nothing. :ohmy:

Everyone who has been on this board for the past 5 years know that all "true" Native Americans are against the nickname. All those who do not care or are supportive of the nickname have lost their heritage or worse, "hang around the fort indians."

I would suggest that you open a history book since I have a degree in history. The Civil War was not about slavery.

Source your arguement. African-Americans were not considered human so their opinion would not have counted.

Why do you only capitalize UND and North Dakota and not African-Americans or Native Americans? Are they not as worthy?

It may not have been the main cause but it was an underlying factor in almost all of the issues under contention.

No, it was just one of the main causes of it because no one could agree. and African-Americans at that time did count as humans or at least 2/3's of a person. And if we are going off ceredentials, I will be qualified to teach history in about a year.

Slavery had nothing to do with the cause of the Civil War. It was a war between two different cultures, an industrial culture and an agrarian culture.

Actually two degrees from the University of North Dakota. I may have not spelled a word in haste but I do not wear a hood with the eyeholes turned around.

This board is made up of the "IGNORANT masses".

Yes my mistake. The abolishment of slavery would not have affected the agrarian culture found in the south at all. The federal government support for the abolishment of slavery would have sat very well in a region that leaned to state rights. Hell, slavery must not have been an issue at all. The Missouri Compromise was a waste of time. Why would anyone be concerned with the makeup in congress if slavery wasn't an issue? :ohmy:
