This is what gets me, a lot of sports teams name's are after American Indian out of respect. Warrior's, Braves, Chiefs .ect .ext .ext.
They do it out of respect of the fighting spirit of the American Indians. The will and fighting spirit of American Indian's is something to be honored. With that I guess all the school's and rec. league's across the country will have to follow as well.
Would it be better to honor them with a name as that or just call them "those damn Indians" or should we get so politically correct that we just call them red team or blue team......... Can't do that either strawberries and grapes will get pissed off.

“Dan Snyder, read a history book, don’t name your football team after a genocide.”
I take on Dan Snyder and the Washington football team once again. Having just marched against the team this past weekend with thousands of others, I believe this is a cause worth fighting for and I'm explaining why in this Ventura Declaration. Do you agree or disagree with me?
The 1933 [NFL] season also marked the first of 13 seasons in which African Americans were prohibited from playing in the league. The ban was rescinded in 1947, following public pressure and the removal of a similar ban in Major League Baseball. Source en.wikipedia.org...

How about the Vikings Jess? Didn’t they commit genocide on Europe in their day? So why didn’t you protest against their name when you were governor?
Sounds like you guys are just as butthurt as any minority and with far far less reason :\
