SHAMEFUL KANSAS CITY CHIEFS RACISM LEGACY PUSH BACK COMING SOON?!?!



It's only a matter of time until the Kansas City Chiefs face a challenge on their racist use of caricature like the so many other pro-sports teams currently under siege . . .

FoxSports.com: Redskins ... Indians ... Will Native Americans target the Chiefs next?

Money quote:

Could the Kansas City Chiefs be under fire next?

"I can't say that (someone) is going to be suing the Chiefs," John Learned, who earlier this week revealed plans to launch the American Indian Center of the Great Plains in Kansas City, told FOXSportsKansasCity.com. "But I know there's going to be someone wanting to question the Chiefs and some of the things that they do.

"They're going to come after them. I just know they are."

TKC Note . . .

AT THE VERY LEAST THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS SHOULD DISCOURAGE FANS FROM WEARING OFFENSIVE AND INSULTING COSTUMES!!!

Like it or not, the team's legacy is rooted in racist caricature and stereotypes . . .

Once again, I have to repeat this news.
The Chiefs were named after our beloved mayor H Roe Bartle, who went by the name "Chief" all of his adult life.
Mayor Bartle was a wonderful mayor and great man.

Fans of our football team should now show their enthusiasm by dressing as a portly, bald, bespectacled bureaucrat. Go Chief!

Native Americans are plagued by high suicide rates, Alcoholism, drug addiction, poverty, unemployment, low birth rates, higher than normal infant mortality rates. Makes perfect sense to go after sports teams. Taking a page from African Americans. Ignore the real issues and go after the wealthy white guys.

5:57... heard this argument again on the radio this morning. it doesn't matter the source of the name, what matters is the imagery associated with it; in this case, headdresses, arrowheads, Warpaint, etc. none of which I find or believe to be offensive, nor the name either.

Your racist legacy is secure, dude. Why worry about someone else's?

Change the name to the KC Kracker Jacks and all will be fine.

Sambo's restaurant celebrated the Negro.

Wonder how Zema Williams would react if a white in black face sat next to him at a game?

Insulting as these "honors" are to the American Indian they stem from bigotry rather than racism.

How about that unConstitutional law which removed the Indians from their lands east of the Mississippi?

Change the KC Chiefs name to THIS said...

Kansas City Prairie Niggers

That would be a "pushback", as it is called.

Who would have ever thought that after completing a systematic near-genocide on an indigenous population, that those remaining natives would find offense at "tomahawk chops" and headdresses worn by fat, balding buffoons?

What gall these native Americans have.

Native Americans are WAY too honest in dealing with this situation.

They should take a cue from the "professional Black" groups and threaten boycotts, negative media attention, etc., UNLESS/UNTIL they receive a generous "charitable contribution" to their tribe.

My God! Recall the recent media firestorm which erupted when LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling made some derogatory racial comments in a private conversation with a "business associate."

So, let's compare and contrast: On the one hand, a Los Angeles billionaire who's had negative experiences with poor blacks, makes derogatory comments to one person.....and the world publicly beats him up.

versus

A Texas billionaire who owns a KC team using a "Chiefs" slogan, which some find offensive, is provided with a stadium at taxpayer expense. Hmm?

For fucks sake. All the God Damn shit that has happened to the Native American and someone gets their panties in a bunch over the Chiefs? Fuck that give me a few million acres, some horses, cattle and buffalo back and you whining as liberal dip shits can do whatever you want at Arrowhead Stadium.

Fuck maybe paint it pink as a tribute to all those rich white ladies who suckered for fake ass cancer surgery. In fact rename the team the Dead Paleface Tits. That should work.

What about Hunt Oil killing indigenous people in Peru to drill oil?

10:03 is correct. It's no different than calling a team the "spear chuckers." It's an outdated, racially motivated team name.

Dressing up with paint, feathers, and adopting the traditional garments for commercial purposes is on par with profiting from black face.

There was a time in our country when it wasn't considered inappropriate to have the Redskins or the Chiefs. But times have changed. And so too must billion dollar enterprises.

Nobody is saying they can't go by the "Chiefs" or the "redskins." The ruling is that you can't trademark a derogatory term and profit from it.

Chief is an English word for someone in a leadership position, it's not Native American or Native American centric. Arrowheads are a weapon, but not racist. What of the teams official emblems and logos are racist? The team did away with the racist elements years ago.

Orphan of the Road said...

The only Native American is the bison.

I remember how they honored Geronimo with a movie staring blue-eyed Chuck Connors.

And the movie taught me how whites saved the Apace by teaching them to plant corn.

Guys.

It's over.

Won't happen for a few years but it's over.

All Indian references will be out of the major sports in the coming years.

No references to any ethnic group is gong to be allowed in sports, regardless of whether white folks find them offensive or not.

People will demand the, to be renamed to the KC progressives. Neon uniforms, shitty music playing at the stadium, and everyone wears black rimmed non perscription glasses.

Chief Big in the Pants said...

It's really not that hard.

There's only one rule really.

Pick a name and mascot that makes no reference to a people or culture whom slavery or a near-genocide was perpetuated against.

You'll still be able to get drunk and puke in the parking lot, cheer on your mediocre teams while getting fucked in the ass on tickets/parking/concessions, and then go home and fuck your fat slob wives. Those traditions will remain sacred and no one can take them away from you.

Rename them the Kansas City Thugs.

The cheerleaders could be the Thugettes, and a low-rider Impala could circle the field after every touchdown.

Tom Pendergast said...

They were named after Bartle.

Keep the name Chiefs and make the mascot a fat white guy in a suit.

I wonder why are white people so hateful is it the devil within.

9:01 AM white people are fed up with their stuff being taken away under some guise of political correctness and a tortured not applicable sense of white guilt.

We are tired of 90% of the violent crime being done to us is being done by negros. We are tired of TANF creatinga black baby boom that will produce legions of unwanted, uneducated, undisciplined, unemployable feral young lazy negros with nect tats, dreds, 9s and Glocks, doing an selling drugs, with their pants under their ass lookin for young gullible white girls to make single white mothers for life. An destroying any neighborhood or shopping area they loiter in.

Now does that explain some of the white people frustration and reaction.

Kansas City likes this racial slur, because they are racist. Change the name - grow up!

I LOVE that cartoon of H. Roe Bartle in the loincloth superimposed over the map. The Chiefs need to bring that back!
