  1. I’d buy the KC Stars argument a lot more if it weren’t for the fact that they seem to have no problem with their hometown Chiefs, who play at Arrowhead Stadium. Moral Relativism at its finest.

  2. Not to beat a dead horse, but there are plenty of groups that would say that Chiefs and Arrowhead are just as offensive as Redskins, as would the NCAA in their ruling on native american themed mascots or motiffs.

    I’m not passing judgmenet on either the Chiefs or The Redskins names, just pointing out the enormous hypocrisy of the KC Star for staking their moral line at Redskins while completely ignoring the billion dollar behemoth in their own backyard. Such as…

    Oh hey, here’s a picture from the KC Star from yesterday of Will Shields at the Chiefs game pounding a vaguely native american drum with a vaguely native american wooden club.

    That’s totally not cultural appropriation in its most base and offensive form, but yeah, let’s totally climb on our soap box and finger wag at The Redskins.
