Mostly because you were never used as a mascot being part of the master (white) race?
Good, then I'll name my team the KKKrazies rednecks with long beards and shotguns will be my mascot.
Hope you don;t mind, it is out of respect for the warrior abilities of redneck settlers

I will never understand why it is so offensive to use a "person" as a mascot when it was originally used as a tribute to said person.
It is offensive because it is a stereotype. All they want is respect for who they are and to not be used as a mascot.
What would you think if someone used Jewish Americans, African American, Polish Americans..etc as mascots. There would be outrage and there would validity to that outrage.
If you cannot understand than I highly doubt you ever will.
