Markus you are entitled to your opinion, however, I would just like to say that I am very capable of being involved in many causes that affect Native people at the same time, just because I care about this does not mean that I care less about other issues.
Billy I encourage you to review research on this topic and its negative effects on Natives, this is not just about being pc, these mascots have significant consequences to Natives, particularly the youth. As a Native American, and as a mother to a Native American, I cannot simply "get over it".
To help you out, here is a link to a report on the topic by Dr Stephanie Fryberg -http://sitemaker.umich.edu/daphna.oyserman…
I find it funny when non-Natives who have such strong opinions about this topic tell us to "get over it"...you first.
Not sure where Billy is getting his info from...I am Native (Navajo) and pretty much all of my Native friends, which is a lot, care deeply about this issue!
Thank you for posting this!
Go to any mutton stand on the Navajo reservation and order a Navajo burger, otherwise known as a frybread burger.
This is totally legit and does exist...and is delicious.
