Examine This piece of cutting-edge academic writing. The Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles will play in Super Bowl LI on Sunday. Fans from all over the country have signed a petition asking the team to change its “racist name.” The book says that racism against Native Americans is “carefully fostered in the background as an explosion of good old team spirit on the national stage.”
“A whole country of people might stop being racist on a Sunday,” as his predecessor did before him.
Simon Moya-Smith is a journalist and a member of the Oglala Lakota Nation. On Friday, he wrote a blog post called “The Fight to Defend the Name of the Kansas City Chiefs” about the legal battle over the team’s name. To set the tone, he says, “Among Indigenous peoples, Thanksgiving is also called “UnThanksgiving.” He then goes on to explain in detail what fans of “the team that used to be called the Washington Redskins” do on Thanksgiving.
Moya-Smith said that a drunk white person had pointed at her and said, “I’m a quarter Choctaw!” After the debate was over, one person said, “I can wear this if I want to!” as they were leaving the parking lot.
I’m afraid you’ve completely missed the point. The author responded by talking more. “Snarling, big Coors drinkers” were gathered around a grill and a wall of coolers when this man “stopped and waddled” right in the middle of them.
Moya-Smith asked out loud if anyone had ever met a Native American or if they had only seen John Wayne kill Indians in bad 1980s B-movies they saw on TCM. She said this made things “uglier and faster.”
“White lads in R-word shirts” started following us after his “once again patient talk” about “how disgusting and bad it is to mess with another culture.”
The last “Let’s go” made the essay clear. When something important happens, they will be the first to know.
The author complains that “now, on the eve of Super Bowl LVII, we’re all at the same tense and awful national tailgate party, staring down the barrel of more brutal anti-Indigenous meanness,” even though the Washington Redskins “renounced its dictionary-defined racial slur of a name” in 2020.
Moya-Smith talks about the racial problems he thinks will happen at the NFL game this year.
The Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles will play the second-place Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. For the first time in a long time, Chief’s fans saw him do their favorite fake combat dance to the beat of a fake Indian drum. When the Arizona Cardinals are in town, there are great halftime shows at State Farm Stadium. Both red lipstick and feather boas sell like crazy at the store.
He thought that “good old team spirit” would be used to justify racism and sexism against Native Americans in the United States in the future.
Amanda Blackhorse is a well-known person who fights for the rights of Native Americans. She is planning a march and rally outside the stadium for people who don’t like Super Bowl LI. The Washington NFL team changed its name in large part because of Blackhorse’s work.
She also said that because Indigenous people have been at the front of this fight from the beginning, it is more important than ever that they be heard. She thought that using the big drum in this way was disrespectful to Indigenous people and theft of their culture. She said that the Chief showing his tomahawk was a good sign that he was going crazy.
Patrick Mahomes, the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, and Rihanna, the main act at this year’s halftime show, have both tried to make deals with Blackhorse.
Moya-Smith quotes the American Psychological Association when she says that “the language and images used by Indian-themed teams and their mascots harm children’s mental health and stability.” Almost 20 years have passed since the study was done.
Since this kind of “destructive” talk is heard so often, the author wonders how “a whole country of people can stop being racist all at once on a Sunday.”
He said that it hurts the health and well-being of Native Americans and our children when fans look up to a team that makes millions of dollars.
He says that this choice was made even though competitors “made a lot of noise and gnashed their teeth.”
He says that racists who use athletes to promote their cause are acting in a hateful way that doesn’t belong in the modern world.
Liberals want sports to be governed in a more “woke” way.
After the 2019 season, the Washington Redskins will change their name to the Washington Command. Since 1928, fans have called the team the “Redskins.”
When the 2022 MLB season starts, the team will be called the Cleveland Guardians.
This baseball team got rid of its racist mascot, Chief Wahoo after fans complained.
At the end of this week, the Chiefs will stop using Warpaint, their Indian pony mascot. Every Warpaint show since 1955, when Arrowhead Stadium opened, has been sold out.
The Chiefs’ president, Mark Donovan, told the Associated Press on Thursday that the name of the team will not change.
When they first started, the Chiefs were called the Dallas Texans.
The last mayor of Kansas City was H. Roe Bartle. He was so famous that people started calling him “The Chief,” and that name stuck. Bartle was so important to get the group started that it’s hard to say enough about it.
The leader of the expedition is sure that Bartle is respected by the Northern Arapaho Tribe.
Some people have said that the name is offensive and asked that it be changed. Several English words come from the Latin word caput, which means “head.”
