Redface

So yea, here we are again with yet another example of why there should not be any more Indian mascots. Because this happens and the guy sees nothing wrong with it. See the below picture and let me know what you think.

I just really have no words for this. All I can say is Change The Mascot!!!!

Redskins is a racial slur. Red face is a racist display. The Redskins are a racist team. Get your racist team out of my site and off my peoples land. Period. End of conversation.

Arnold is 100% correct, Jerry.

This is deplorable. The ‘American way’ just doesn’t realize that this is very detrimental to the way of the people. This shows, not only ignorance, but makes the American people look like morons. Get the clue, you’re not Native to this land and the name of the Washington football team represents hatred and full on murder and defacement of the Native body. Learn something today, keep learning and help the Indigenous People of this land heal.

It`s a horrible thing when a stereo typical of a people is shown. This is an insult.

We are 500 Nations strong. I would like to introduce this guy to the men in my family. We are proud Native People & deserve the same respect as any one else. For far to long this type of ignorance has been accepted. It is taught at a very young age. When one moves on to the after life, you don’t need such stupidity, so why use it now. Stay strong Native brothers & sisters.

Craig Apelbaum

Right on Claire !

Arnold

The problem is people think this is acceptable. The fact that there is a national sports team glorifying a racial slur used to demean a people makes some believe it’s inoffensive. Sorry but you’re incorrect. The type of people that aren’t offended by this have the same problem as a grown man looking in the mirror after painting himself red and putting on a wig, thinking he to could be a mascot for his team to show pride. Sad.

Jerry

So somebody does something stupid, and it’s the teams fault??? I don’t know who is stupider — the fan or the idiot who wrote the article…
