Native Activists Curse 'Sickening' Chop And Kansas City Chiefs?!?

Once again politics occupies center stage as symbols of Kansas City football glory are taken to task and ultimately condemned.

And so we ask . . .


TKC readers might be skeptical of such questions . . . But athletes are a superstitious bunch and these arguments really are a bit of a bummer as they shroud the game in the very same culture war that continues to divide the nation. 

More to the point . . . This type of impassioned and desperate argumentation is the way of the future and part of the reason why we think a name change remains imminent . . . It's just hard to have a good time when trying to justify the genocide of a proud people

And no . . . Endorsements from a few sellouts in return for donations don't settle the debate.

Here's the argument of native activists . . .

While the Kansas City team banned fans from wearing headdresses and face paint to games in 2020, it has maintained its mascot and other controversial traditions, including the tomahawk chop.

Also known as the Arrowhead chop, the Kansas City tradition sees fans move their arms in a chopping motion and chant a made-up war song. Not In Our Honor has accused the Kansas City team of “openly mocking Indigenous People and bastardizing our culture with the sickening ‘Arrowhead Chop.’”
