Kansas City Star Publishes Fake Native Endorsement Of The Chiefs

If you try hard enough, you can find people who will say ANYTHING

When we talk about diverse communities, political parties or any group of people . . . It's important to listen to their leadership and membership organizations.

Their opinion may be unpopular but their advocacy should be regarded as a FACT and a representation of their representative organizational strength.

Searching for the outliers and highlighting crackpot opinions isn't just bad journalism . . . It's disingenuous. 

Here's an example of this fake news tactic in action from the newspaper . . .

"Team names such as Chiefs or Braves stand for the strong and courageous leadership within the Native tribes that fought so valiantly to protect their lands. Doing away with symbols such as the “Arrowhead Chop” also would contribute to this erasure of our culture, making it even more convenient for the rest of America to forget how Natives were brutally invaded, murdered, forced on death marches, imprisoned and finally sent to reservations."

I call myself Indian, and I'd be angry if Kansas City renamed the Chiefs or Arrowhead | Opinion

Regarding the push to rename the Chiefs and Arrowhead Stadium, I would like to offer a different view. As members of the Cheyenne River Agency Sioux tribe, my family and I all see these movements as a further attempt at Native American genocide - this time, cultural genocide.
