TKC EXCLUSIVE TESTIMONY!!! DEBATE OVER INCLUSION ERUPTS IN DISCUSSION OF RACIST KANSAS CITY CHIEFS MONIKER!!!
Right now we have EXCLUSIVE testimony regarding the ongoing debate brewing over discriminatory NFL team names.
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS EXCLUSIVE TESTIMONY OFFERING A BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK IN THE DISCUSSION OF THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS DISCRIMINATORY MONIKER!!!
Looks like this will be a signature issue for the upcoming season as the Redskins will be forced to change their name at some point and now Kansas City intolerance and discourse is soon to enter the discussion.
Here's the word an excerpts of a recent e-mail sent our way:
Indian Center Story...Real Story
Earlier this week, the Chiefs Organization addressed the issue sensitivity to Native American concerns with John Learned, President & CEO of the American Indian Center of the Great Plains in Kansas City. This group is considered to be the legitimate organization representing the Native Americans of our region.
And apparently, the American Indian Center of the Great Plains did not feel the need to include the Kansas City Indian Center -- the organization highlighted in the KSHB evening news piece you website linked with -- the piece that included KC Indian Center spokesperson Moses Brings Plenty.
I would imagine the KC Indian Center sees this as an opportunity have the Chiefs organization write them a big check for the "cultural education" that Mr Brings Plenty spoke of.
In other words -- a shake down.
The Kansas Indian Center (or Heart of America Indian Center) is a small 501 (c)(3) organization that offers very little to the Native American Community.
They have a small food pantry, a food give-a-way of Fridays and a monthly "cultural night" which is little more than a pot-luck supper and some activities for kids . . .
There has been past controversy surrounding its board, staff & executive directors, with relatively high turnover in executive leadership, along with . . . (A string of recent) firings and/or resignations.
All in all, the Kansas City Indian Center seems to be a questionable organization at best.
The reality is that the KC Chiefs had already met with the legitimate Native American leadership in this region. And it was not the Kansas City Indian Center.
In fairness, this might be in response to recent social media blasts wherein the Kansas City Indian Center has noted EXCLUSION in these behind the scenes talks . . .
What's important for TKC Readers . . .
IT SEEMS LIKE THERE IS A BIT OF DEBATE OVER REPRESENTATION WITHIN THE KANSAS CITY NATIVE AMERICAN COMMUNITY!!!
Accordingly . . .
TKC WOULD LIKE TO SUGGEST A HUGE POW-WOW FEATURING ALL OF THESE GROUPS AND MORE PEEPS DEDICATED TO ENDING THE TACIT DISCRIMINATION OF TRAGIC FOOTBALL NICKNAMES!!!
Moreover, maybe they want to think about inviting Mexicans too ... Given that we're really the largest NATIVE American group in the Western Hemisphere.
