My kids HS are the warriors and the cherokee's. One parent started that shit at a game when the tomahawk chomp music played. Another mother who heppens to be 3/4's cherokee stood up and screamed at her that since she is 3/4's indian she had the right to tell her to shut the hell up. The whole place went wild
I say just change the name to reflex the culture that truly runs DC... something like this
America is being pussified.
I remember as a kid in school the teacher would tell us to sit indian style. So we knew it was legs crossed and folded. Fast fwd to when I have kids of my own, I find out, in school "sit indian style" has now become sit like a pretzel.
What the fuck?!
Junior High.......Midway Mohawks
High School......Fair Park Indians
Our team was the Falcons. At one game a bunch of jets from Teterboro came and protested.
No, it's observant.
Midway Mohawks is real close to the name of their HS lol
Yeah, but the phrase "I caught you red-handed" IS racist but most people don't even give that phrase a second-thought.
If the team's name wasn't Red Skins, but Black Skins and had a logo of an African-American, there'd be no doubt as to the offense, right?
How is this different?
Just because a phrase made it into your venacular (not just you, anyone), doesn't mean it's okay.
Even the phrase "hey! you gyped me" reinforces negative stereotypes about the Romani people.
Lots of phrases like that in American English.
I think even the phrase "yellow-bellied" is a racist remark against Asians (specifically, Chinese).
I'll try to dig up a few more.
So now its sit like a pretzel. What the fuck is this world coming to.
Objectively, it is, but it seems to offend white libs more than Native Americans.
I get red skin if I'm out in the sun too long.
Here. I found an old college textbook, called Uprooting Racism
p26 (if anyone cares)
"war paint" (referring to women's make-up)
"to 'jew down'"
...and a shit load of "dark"/"black" and "white"/"light" phrases that are more messy to dissect/discuss.
Not sure why, but the Cleveland Indians logo always struck me as worse than the name 'Redskins'. Maybe because it feels like a throwback to the early years of cartoons when the material was truly outrageous.
Here's a few slurs for the white man.
god, you SUCK at this.
