A study found that Native American-themed mascots diminish the self-esteem of the people they are representing and cause a feeling of less hope for the future among the younger American Indians. The study additionally observed that Native American mascots teach those of European descent that it is fine to use stereotypes against others. Furthermore, the mascots and nicknames are offensive and do not accurately depict the people they are supposed to represent; they are mockery. The use of American Indian mascots also violates nondiscrimination policies most schools have (or should have), vowing to protect students from discrimination, but the mascots themselves are discriminatory. Nevertheless, American Indians support mascots when they are portrayed in a tasteful manner and not offensively.
They intentionally discriminated against a group of people; they had no regards to other’s statuses as human beings which in our honest opinion is extremely unethical. Every human being should be treated with respect regardless of their culture, ethnicity, race, gender, etc. Johnny's leadership roles within his school simply doesn’t convince us that he was bullied into discriminating others, so we feel that he too should face the consequences. As a leader he should have known better. Johnny complained of being bullied into participating, however, his participation in the discriminatory acts is considered
In the end, assimilation was had more than just one motive. Assimilation would develop into the breaking up of tribes, and the American government would benefit greatly by taking the land that had previously been granted as reservation space. In addition to the destruction of tribal culture and identity, the institutions were used to control less cooperative peoples. These institutions had nearly nothing to do with the things and ideas they were advertised to be completely invested in. They simply held the role of controlling tribes and stripping away culture from the children, ripping families apart and
Scott LaBarge’s essay “Heroes: Why Heroes are Important” is well written because he effectively uses pathos, logos, and karios when explaining heroes to his audience. When something goes wrong or we feel like we cannot continue, we could all use someone to step in and change our situation. Everyone needs a hero. LaBarge gives an excellent example from his high school days; Thoreau inspired him and became his hero. The high school period of one’s life is a difficult period.

High school coaches should not be required to give equal playing time to all players who make the team. Kids in society have been handed things their entire life. There has been little to no sense of accomplishment after earning a spot or position on a team. Spots should be earned by being the best at what someone does, not for pitty and for moral victories to make them feel good. “In high school, kids should understand playing time is earned.
Fraternal organizations as well as institutions had adopted words or materials belonging to the culture of the Native American peoples, which undoubtedly allowed us to conclude the origins of many nicknames, mascots and symbols of present day sports teams’ names. An example of such cultural adoption would be the change of Boston Red Stockings to Braves in 1912. James Gaffrey, the owner of the Boston Red
He could not believe he was asking him to pick. Since before the State Final, Anthony probably didn’t know who he was but now he is letting him pick his college. He then picked Iowa Hawkeyes to go and then Dak raised his up and said then you choose mine. Anthony choose, the one that was the closest to him.
When I first signed up for sports communications the last thing I thought I’d be doing was not only meeting people like Mike Breen, Jim O’Connell, Steven Sheer, and Joe Yanarell, but speaking to them on a first hand basis and getting to know about their line of work. Each and every speaker not only told us about their line of work but told us about their stories on how they got to where they are and why try fell in love with what they do along the way. The three speakers that stood out to me the most were Mike Breen, Jim O’Connell, and Steven Sheer, but I would like to quote Joe Yanarell on a couple statements that seem to fit into each and every one of these men’s stories. First off, Mr. Yanarell said “you are going to fail and learn from it.” This quote goes a long way
The people of today should not be held responsible for the mistreatment of past American Indians, but the frustration American Indian’s feel about their mistreatment of the past is valid. The past attempted genocide of American Indians including the elimination of many American Indians a main point of frustration for American Indians and the main question still stands today: why? The discrimination the American Indian genocide started and the forced movement from the American Indians original land to reservations proves the ignorance of America’s past and the ignorance it brought with it because people today still stereotype American Indians but it's important to diminish those stereotypes. Ignorance, stereotypes and greed are the underlining causes for the attempted genocide and discrimination of the American Indians and its crucial that this topic still be discussed to get rid of the idea of genocide and
The Inca’s warfare tactics were incredibly unique compared to other indigenous societies. They often shied away from simply fighting and rather used the tactic of diplomacy to win battles, claim land, and leave with minimum bloodshed. The Incas were excellent diplomats and were able to negotiate with the tribes they were fighting against. For example, when the Incas went to war, they would tell the other tribe that they wouldn’t fight them if the tribe simply gave in and became part of the Incan military.
And this is effected by the provisions of a compact which assumes the venerated, the sacred appellation of treaty." (Cherokee letter protesting the Treaty of New Echota, 1836). The US is aiming for Manifest Destiny and nothing less, so they enforce treaties that benefits them and takes all land from the Natives Indians. Manifest Destiny doesn’t have any compassion, it challenges the US to take what they can get and just keep on
Antigone should be allowed to bury Polyneices because her beliefs say the deceased should be buried. King Creon even buried Eteocles but not Polyneices because he was a traitor. They both died so they should both be buried in honor of their religions. Government shouldn’t intervene with their peoples religion or anybody 's religion because all humans should be able to have their own beliefs. What happens in their life doesn’t change their beliefs.
What should be done for racist sports mascot’s name? Is it right for a team to be called “Redskins?” Adidas thinks no.
