    They're getting rid of the indigenous american names from sports teams because it promotes fans to wear headdresses and paint their faces red in caricatures that promote stereotypes of a race that had their land stolen, the women raped, their sacred sites destroyed in one of the ugliest greed driven cultural and ethnic genocides in human history.

    Seems fair enough to me really.

    Drunk frat boys can wear pirate cutlasses, cowboy hats, tiger facepaint or whatever else they choose to replace the team's identities with.

    Aren't they the ones who burned the ranches of sheep farmers, killed their flocks and drove them out to Australia.

    I rest my case ....

    "The use of Caucasian to mean white was popularized in the late 18th century by Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, a German anthropologist, who decreed that it encompassed Europeans ...

    ... and the inhabitants of a region reaching from the Obi River in Russia to the Ganges to the Caspian Sea, plus northern Africans."

    Imagine waking up everyday, walking out of your teepee, your lean-to or your house and standing in sheep ****. I'd be prettied fecked off too.

    Still. At least we learned how to share what we don't have much claim to and didn't wipe out the indigenous in Australia like we did in America... oh wait.
