TKC QUESTION: SHOULD THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS CHANGE THEIR RACIST NAME TOO?!?
A bit of trend-spotting is in order this evening . . .
IN LIGHT OF CRITICISM FACING THE RACIST "REDSKIN" FOOTBALL TEAM NAME . . . SHOULD KANSAS CITY CHANGE THE CONDESCENDING CHIEFS MONIKER?!?!
Remember that this is an issue that should go to taxpayers and not just sports fans considering how much the local team is funded by Jackson County . . .
Watching so many white people cheer the Chiefs and mocking Native dress and culture isn't exactly respectful and given that Native Americans were the victim of one of the world's most underrated genocide efforts . . . A little sensitivity might be in order.
