This isn’t directed to you silver 14 in particular just my thoughts as a whole;
There’s way way way more woke white people pissed about team names than actual Natives. My wife is 4/4 (100%) Navajo and my kids are half. I live 4 miles from the Navajo Nation and I spend a lot of time on the Rez, I get along very well with the Natives. My best buddy at work is Navajo. I see them in Redskins, Indians, Braves, etc. memorabilia daily. If you don’t know what you’re talking about first hand, dont be a parrot on people you don’t likely know or understand’s behalf. I’ve not talked to one Navajo person who is offended by any of these names. They had code talkers at the Skins games a few years ago for crying out loud. The only people I hear making any sort of noise about this is the woke media and woke culture in general, which is very very few actual Native Americans.

Now that I got that out of the way,

I think Ill bust my Camaro out now and go for a drive.

Thanks for sharing that perspective. The Cleveland American Indian Movement has been protesting it for 50 years, I assume they have the most first hand knowledge of the topic.

Since you have the ability to pull articles from a large number of sources, any articles on Native American anger at vile, white liberal trash pretending to be Indian to gain teaching positions at prestigious universities and snake their way up to the Senate and beyond?

I personally identify as a big cat, so I would appreciate it if they changed the Jax Jags to the Crackers given the town's history with Florida cattle.

I agree society is changing…for the worst. Part about you listening to people. Nah you’re following people. There’s a difference.

Exactly!

Man, a 572 copo! That’s bad ass. Personally i think it’s even more cool that they are producing more than 69. It’ll be interesting to see what the power figures end up being along with ET’s etc.

Following who? The people who’ve been protesting this for 50 years? I guess? All I’m doing is providing you direct sources to the people who are impacted by the issue. Up to you if you think they’re worth listening to or not. I like having information before making up my mind, or even better, being presented information that makes me change it!
