Shawnee Mission School District's mascot policy could change

Speakers during the meeting's public comment session singled out the Indian mascot used by Shawnee Mission North High School.

The Celtics are pissed off and flying from Dublin to Boston right now to beat the crap out of the entire organization.

There are rumors of a flotilla of Pirates sailing up the Missouri with rings in their ears, cutlasses in their teeth, and mayhem in their minds, about to rampage on the Park University Campus to wreak vengeance for denigrating their profession by choosing a "Pirate" as their mascot.

Is there no end to this fad?

Haskell Indian Nations University is an inter-tribal Native American University. This means that only Native Americans can attend. So if us so called white people have no say over Haskell how about the Indians having no say over what we do.

Better yet lets just erase everything from the face of the earth related to Indians, casinos and all.

Rename Kaw River to Trail of Mud
Rename the state to Meadows
Rename Topeka to Section8ville
Rename Wichita to Boeing
Rename Kansas City to The Dotte
And so on and so on

Fuck those Indians, wipe them and any mention of them from all history.

If not for naming things after American Indians their do nothing civilization would be forgotten like the dust they created.

If a mascot is presented with the utmost respect and honor, as is the case with SM North, then it should be kept. The crazy Cleveland Indian Chief Wahoo was not a show of respect. Respecting an ethnic mascot is the key.

Did we not conquer the Indians and place them on reservations? Why do we care what their opinions are? Even for a shitty school like SM North.

^^Now, they are American Citizens with the same rights as everyone else.

They have served in our military with honor.

"The same rights as everyone else" does not include a right to force a school to change its team names. Or if it does, I want to force a few changes too.

And so have a few Whites, @11:04 - why should their rights and feelings be ignored?
Rule of the many by the few isn't really the American tradition.

Can we find any more individuals or groups who are victims? We need more enraged victims and protests.

Or maybe, the larger population should just tell them to fuck off!

^^or better idea, we tell good-for-nothing, crying, complainers like you to fuck off. yea, that's the ticket!

jobs and education would help the descendants of the indians more than posturing ...

but my comment was really to say that the mascot in the image is not nearly as bad as the other one I have seen. this one seems noble, brave, very stylized so it's not like an offensive injun portrayal, so to speak.

boy and on that subject, re-visiting anthrax's "among the living' album and the song 'injuns' wow that's kind of hard to see happening today. still a great album though. this will likely out me as very old but oh well.

In the movie “The second civil war”, Phil Hartman said it best. “ can’t we just give them another casino”?

Time to be one species, humans. Dividing ourselves based on our ancestors is stupid.

The mascot worry is a silly cause. Worry about the actual kids at SMN, their future, their ability to afford college or just get a job where they can buy a house someday. Or worry about the heavy vaping and drinking. Does the mascot hurt the students in any way? NO! A Sad story, but one girl (I will call her Kim) graduated from SMN in the late 1980's, had no direction, no plans, no college, slept with many guys around Mission Ks to get attention, and was even in a homemade porn gang bang video that made its way to the internet for all time when she was about 23. Lets teach kids how to be successful - dont worry about a silly school mascot. I dont want to be supporting these kid's welfare checks in 20 years either. They need a bright future and good career. The mascot was choosen years ago by people that are long dead. It doesnt hurt the kids in any way. Forget about it

You know in reality nobody thinks of indians anymore its all BLM, LGB, Chinese students, Latino rights......indians might be glad someone honors them with a rememberance.

The school could have just picked the name "Bulldogs" or something like that and never mentioned Indians. Indians seem ungrateful. What if SMN wins and becomes state champs? Would Indians feel disgraced? That story about the girl named Kim is discusting, but she is not a Indian and is probably more of a community outcast right now than Indians are. Nobody likes a sloot. Even the guys who used her. Reminder: Always use a condom with slooty girls.
