The government told them with actions that the young men could fight for the country, but not obtain citizenship from that action. The government lied to the Native Americans once again, making their trust lost in Americans. A bill was passed to include Indians and aliens to be drafted. Native Americans are alive, they deserve to have equal rights. But, “everything”, still was not presented to them.
(lsensee 2015). History books aren’t showing the reality of things to students. History books want to hide what white people did to Africans, Native Americans and other ethnicities. “It’s an attempt to whitewash history.” (Isensee 2015).
When the Spanish came to the Americas and met the Indios they didn’t know who or what they were. Many of the Spanish initially believed the Indios were barbaric savages. This was due to the fact that many of them were nudists, cannibals, they practiced human sacrifice, they had primitive weaponry compared to the Europeans, and they worshipped gods that Europeans believed to be anti-human. The Spanish weren’t even sure if the Indios were human. Because many Spanish people saw the natives as less than human, they started to take advantage of them and even waged battles with them.
Wulf acknowledges that it is inappropriate for teams to continue to use mascots that appropriate another culture. Not only is this rude it 's inconsiderate to those who have to live with the nicknames given to those mascots. Wulf argues that “Racist and derogatory team names have real and harmful effects on [American Indian/Alaska Native] people every day, particularly young people.”(Wulf).
After 9/11, many people though the whole Muslim community was responsible because they did not know the difference between the terrorist groups and the peaceful groups. The Muslim religion revolves around peace, but the extremists believe that Allah is telling them to terrorize people and things. People would be rude to RJ, saying that just because he was Muslim he would basically go no where. “I grew up hearing that Muslims are terrorists. I didn’t see Muslims like me on TV or in the movies: the Muslims on the screen were evil” (Khalaf 10).
Sports team names such as the Cleveland Indians and the Washington Redskins are extremely offensive to Native Americans, even though many people don’t realize it. In the novel, the reservation school is called the Wellpinit Redskins which was likely named by white people, regardless of how offensive it is. Adding on to that, Junior’s new, predominantly white school also has an offensive mascot: the Reardan Indians. According to John TH, a Native American equality activist, “Mainstream America just doesn’t get it. Announcers on TV regularly say out loud the word ‘red****ns’ as if it is nothing, when in fact, the word is every bit as toxic to us as n****r is to African Americans.”
No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved, just as they are” (Bible Gateway NIV) I agree to what Peter stated in Acts 15:7-11because it goes accordingly to what the gospel is for; it is for all the people not only Jews. Thus, I believe we are not under the Law because it draws away Gentiles form the truth.
The use of Native American names and mascots are ways of exploiting, dishonoring, and defamation of the Native American culture. Therefore, all sports teamsbut particularly schools should discontinue their use of any Native American names or Mascots to represent their teams. The use of Native American Culture is one of the ways in which the owners and executives of these teams are employing mascots. When talking about schools versus teams revenue is different.
Instead of learning these languages for themselves, legal bans were enforced with physical punishment for the use of native languages. When the natives and slaves began resisting these changes, they began by taking back their language, in turn, taking back their culture
Uprooting them in this way creates a vicious cycle of oppression; this would not only be just a temporary solution, but also would harbor future problems to
The Washington D.C football team has started a controversy with many people that are from the American Indian background. The “indian” sports mascot, logos, or symbols show an image of the Native American people that is not true. To some this may concerning, but to others this is no big deal. I think that this is something that people and teams should care or think about.
The Redskins, an American Football Team, needs to change their name. For years, many Native Americans have complained of the Redskins’ name being racist towards them. They say it does not hold honor to them, it instead reduces them to their skin color and how the pilgrims saw them as. The oppression that this nation has put their culture and people through must be addressed. In 1858, the government had directly taken the reserves given to the Native Americans for resources the nation had wanted.
This is not something the ATF saw necessary to do. After they sought out specialists within the religious field they went against all advice. ATF was advised that entering the Davidian compound, guns blazing with hostility, would only provoke the group. Which in turn is exactly what it did. Also, the ATF seemed to have a lack of understanding of the Davidians and their religion, there seemed to be an underlying sense of judgement.
Dear President Jackson, I believe we have a huge situation regarding the unfair, cruel, and horrible treatment and removal of Native Americans. Why are we violating these American citizens’ rights when they were born here to begin with? These civilized people were minding their own business until you came in and tried to interfere despite the court ruling in favor of the Native Americans. You should be impeached for that mischievous plan. All you care about is the fertile land that these Native Americans lived in; you didn’t care where you would put these Native Americans so you put them in Indian Territory which is dry and not a great place to live since nothing can be grown.
She focused more on the cultural offenses of using Native Americans as mascots. She commented, “I think it is offensive to their culture to use them as a mascot.” I was glad someone mentioned the cultural aspect, but there is a deep religious significance to the “props” that people wear to the games. In his book Fair and Foul, Stanley Eitzen discusses how using this is harmful: “The word Indian isn’t offensive . . . but it’s the behavior that accompanies all of this that’s offensive.
