Kansas City 'Racist' Chiefs Tomahawk Chop: The Last Refuge Of A Local Hack

Both the fierce criticism and strident defense of this old school practice signals that a local scribe is still living in the 90s. We highlight this notice simply because it's well-written, thoughtful and at least attempts to look at both sides of the issue . . . Meanwhile, what we notice this year is that THE NEWSPAPER FAILED TO RESONATE WITH THE PUBLIC ON THIS ISSUE . . . And clueless scribes who followed their same path weeks after didn't fare much better.

Again, this is a better take on the middle-aged & later tradition of local fanboys who stopped learning about news stuff in their late 20s . . . Read more:

Is the Tomahawk Chop racist? Depends who you ask

Photo by Jeremey Theron KirbyYou're standing in a crowd of 76,000 red-shirted Chiefs fans at Arrowhead. The banging of the drum starts, and you perform the familiar gesture and chant known as the tomahawk chop. Look around and you'll find a few fans, hands in pockets, choosing not to participate in the Chiefs tradition.

How many years has this been going on, and now it's racist? This crap is never going to stop. If you don't like it don't partake in it. The chiefs are Anti American but no one seems to mind that except those of us who don't support them. Move On.

^^^^ No, I won't move on.

This is racist and it needs to stop.

And I don't support your casual attitude either TKC.

This MUST STOP.

End the chop. Ban it from the stadium along with the racist costume. The football team must comply if they do not want to be seen as against minorities.

It's only racist because some racists decided it had to be.

This is going to make me and others do the chop even more

Also, looks like 435 mags "rebranding" is more of a death rattle

Only racists think the tomahawk chant is not racist. Just like they think this land is their land just cause they massacre the native people to steal it. Nobody on earth is more evil than the white man which is why they look like the devil when nature (the sun) hits them.

Well, if white people stole the land and still have it, then ipso facto it is their land. So they're not wrong, you are.

And that's not going to change, so you should try to get over it. Or not. Who cares really.

Well we won in a fair fight, didn't we? Beat the red men fair and square? Sure!!! Therefore we are entitled to hold dominion over those savages.

A superiority complex is really an inferiority complex, in disguise.

^^^You know even less about complex than you do about Wall Street. Stick with simplex until you get that right.
