KANSAS CITY CHIEFS MUST DITCH CHOP, CHANT, DRUM & NATIVE-AMERICAN APPROPRIATION TO KEEP NAME!!!



Let's take a quick look at the arguments in support of the Kansas City Chiefs keeping their racist branding . . .

Here's a really informative article that offers a fun-factoid which old school locals throw out in a desperate attempt to seem interesting:

Why The Kansas City Chiefs’ Team Name May Not Actually Be Racist

A worthwhile thesis . . .

"That name, however, was not derived from Native Americans. The Chiefs were named after former Kansas City mayor H. Roe Bartle, who helped the city land a pro football team in the early 1960s.

"The franchise, of course, has adopted Native American themes since then. Fans — some dressed in Native American attire — do the tomahawk chop in Arrowhead Stadium while Warpaint the horse gallops after touchdowns.

"One can make a strong case that those franchise staples offensively depict Native Americans as “savages” and should be changed."

A minor quibble . . . The author understandably forgets that H.Roe Bartle was obsessed with Native American culture and Boy Scouts and even invented his own phony tribe of Mic-O-Say that should also probably be cancelled.



Still, the article makes an important point and leads us to a conflict of cultural appropriation by way of corporate branding . . .

USING 'THE CHIEFS' AS A NAME MIGHT BE PASSABLE BUT THE RAMPANT APPROPRIATION OF NATIVE-AMERICAN CULTURE AT ARROWHEAD NEEDS TO STOP BECAUSE UGLY FANS WEARING RED FACE AND ADORNING THEMSELVES IN FAUX RELIGIOUS ICONS ISN'T A TRIBUTE TO ANYTHING BUT STUPIDITY!!!

The Tomahawk chop is insulting gibberish, quite possibly a hate crime and would be unacceptable if it was directed at any other culture or religion.

A hypothetical: 50K fans calling themselves "The Kansas City Karens" and asking to speak with your manager in unison would also earn justified push back . . . Even if that would be hilarious.

Like nearly every Paul Rudd movie . . . Using Native-American traditions and branding is distasteful, cheap and dehumanizing. This"tribute" is mockery and crass commercialism directed at the victims of one of the world's most horrific genocides that was a matter of U.S. policy.



Even better . . .

Reinventing "The Chiefs" without engaging in stereotypical Native-American cultural appropriation is a challenge that KC could live up to . . .

EXAMPLE: 50K fans dressed as Chief Executive Officers would AMAZING.

Still, given the current cultural shift and the Redskins finally dumping their disgusting branding . . . The challenge for the legacy of the Chiefs to endure is something that should inspire creativity instead of an old, reactionary adherence to the past inspired by nothing more than laziness and the cowardice of the front office to speak to the issue.

The Chiefs organization tried to stop the chop a couple of decades ago and replace it with the Macarena. The fans refused to comply, chanted anyway, and the Chiefs eventually relented. If the fans want to chop, let them chop. At the end of the day, no one is hurt and they had a good time at Arrowhead Stadium. Big deal.

Stop The Chop said...

You assume that nobody is hurt and that's inaccurate. Native Americans across the nation have said these images are hurtful. Your argument is nonsense and doesn't stand up to even the slightest scrutiny.

If "cultural appropriation" is a thing, we better close every Mexican restaurant in town. Cinco De Mayo is clearly a racist appropriation that cuts into the hearts of every Hispanic. They are seen crying outside the bars while white people are gorging themselves with "Mexican' food and beer. Oh the horror! Clearly this racist "holiday" must be suppressed!

Well we could do away with the tomahawk chop, the warrior yell and other Indian indicia in order to justify keeping the Chiefs name. Or, we can continue with all of the above, keep the Chiefs name, and tell anyone who doesn't like it to go fish.

9:41. Don’t give an inch to the mob as that will only encourage them to come back for more. A few weeks ago the mob was destroying statues of Confederate generals. They have already moved on to Catholic Saints because no one had the balls to tell these children, NO. They won’t get what they want just for throwing a tantrum.

If you yield the argument at all that somehow the Chiefs name and fan rituals actually hurt people there is no end to the path you will go down until everything is burned down. They are nihilists and nothing will sate them until they have destroyed everything.

"cultural appropriation". Isn't Hamilton cultural appropriation? Weren't those guys all white?

The "Chiefs” name is viewed as Native American; it doesn't matter the origin. If the Redskins caved, there's no reason to think that the NFL will accept our name of the Chiefs. Something proud, preferably identifiable to KC. The Champs? Thé Grillers? The Smoker's?

Bummer, I really though my name "The kneeling commies" would have been so fitting. I sincerely hope they still consider dropping the chiefs as their name.
Another option would be " the butt and ball rubbers.

Also the draft will consist of either a fish bowl drawing or spin of the wheel so as to promote fairness, diversity and inclusiveness (and butterflies, rainbows and unicorns).

Yes I met a guy in Topeka years ago and his grandfather was in the Army and hunter down Indians that had massacred a bunch of farmers. They shot all those killers. I dont know why we glorify a bunch of people who drink and use drugs to excess, can't handle money, don't want to get a real job or move off a piece of government land called a reservation.

At the same time Indians were only pitching tents across the USA with no cities, people in Europe were building Cathedrals that stand today, building the Paris underground, painting masterpieces that hang in museums right now, developed the theory of Gravity and used telescopes to map the planets. This while the Indians were following herds of their food (buffalo) and living in hide tents with bows and arrows.

Why we mimicked "Indian Chiefs" (Roe Bartle's nickname was Chief) I will never know.

According to the 2010 Decennial Census, 0.9% of the U.S. population, or 2.9 million people, identified as American Indian or Alaska Native alone, while 1.7% of the U.S. population, or 5.2 million people, identified as American Indian or Alaska Native alone or in combination with another race.

Screw that mob. And I don't care if anyone makes fun of my white culture or "privilege." Go ahead. I live in a trailer, drive a pick up, and love my dog. I have a beer belly and live with my mom (I actually take care of her, but OK). I go to church every Sunday and I have guns. I hold the door for people, white or black, and say, "yes, sir" and, "yes, ma'am" to men and women of all races. I served honorably in the military and support cops as long as they treat people humanely regardless of their skin color. I support our president whether I like his politics or not because I respect the democratic process. I have a job, pay my bills, support my children and ex-wife financially and emotionally. I never missed a school meeting, activity, or event for two girls and a boy. I worked overtime hours to help put them through college. Is that the white culture you want to make fun of? Knock yourselves out. I am not a Chiefs fan, or really any sports fan, but I'll tomahawk chop all day if I want. I don't hate Indians, but if they are offended, tough.

If the editorial board of the Kansas City Star wants the chop to end the best thing it can do is stay the fuck out of it. Let it end organically. I guarantee you the more the Star's holier than thou out of towners preach against the racist chop, the more the upper deck contrarians will continue to poke their fingers in the eye of the fancy people and do the chop. It happened last year after the Star ran its editorial about the chop on Friday morning and it was discussed on sports radio all day. On Sunday the chop was louder than ever. It won't change. The Star is so bad the Chiefs fans will do the chop, and the city at large will turn a blind eye to it, to spite it.

Did you know that Indian tribes in the USA were constantly at war with each other. They killed more of each other than the US Government ever did. The US Government stepped in to prevent them from killing each other and separated them onto reservations so they could not get at each other. Over several thousand years, Indians killed millions of their neighbor tribesmen and were constantly on the run. Thats why there is not a single rock statue left by American Indians, or cities, or roads, or anything other than Mesa Verda and Pueblos. They were heathen and wicked. Their Indian friends to the south ripped the hearts out of living neighbors and tortured millions. Why would we want to carry on a Indian theme?

Anonymous said...

We subdued the Indians by introducing firewater. They were attracted like moths to a flame. It kept them from killing so much. But then they stole guns to trade for firewater. And stole horses. They never even fought in the civil war. Black lives do not matter to Indians.

The gradual takeover of North America by Europeans is probably a lot like what happened when the Saxons Angles and Jutes gradually occupied England. A few pitched battles, mostly won by the invaders, followed by waves of settlers and farmers who incrementally occupied the land. I don't recall any Saxons saying "sorry" and we descendants of the European conquerors should not either.

"...why they're entitled to make fun of other people's culture..."

That's the funny thing, no entitlement is required to "make fun" of whatever you want. Your actions may come with consequences, but you need no permission to do it. This trend of Orwellian "group think" is more dangerous than any cultural appropriation.

Native Americans maintained black slaves after the civil war. The 5 Civilized Tribes were allowed to continue slave ownership afterwards. They are Racist and The Chiefs name honors slave owning Indians. Indians also had whites as slaves as well as Indian Slaves. Indians were often so racist that they allowed white slaves to marry Indians, but not black slaves. Indians started slavery in America, not whites. They also treated homosexuals terribly. So, whom do you support ? Let's get back to blacks owning slaves and selling them as well. Or non black slaves from Ireland and England which we called servants. Perhaps you missed History class while you were out smoking the peace pipe with Bevis and Butthead.

Dear 7:47. If you saw a Tesla parked on the street would you say that it was Elon Musk? No, its a creation of Elon's. Its NOT Elon. American Indians look at "Nature" and call it God. Nature is not God. It's God creation. So they mistake a physical object like dirt, wood, rocks and grass as God. The do not know God. And so they are heathens. They get high on plant based drugs and see hallicinations. Those are not God either. They have had thousands of years to find God and have not even considered cracking a Bible open. Not too smart. No excuse for them on judgement day when there are churches on almost every corner of every town. Sad. but true.

Yo, Yuppies. Indians are the closest thing to cavemen that are alive on earth. We need to preserve them and study them to see how humans have changed and migrated. Their DNA can show where they crossed the land masses and how they settled in the USA. Other countries do not have "Indians". Just the USA. And Mongolia.
