Clearly, from the results of the two polls, many fans would be unhappy if the Redskins’ name were to be changed. Also, if any professional sport teams were forced to change their names, it would have a huge negative impact on commercial products. Lingebach addresses in his article how “in another sign of support, the majority of Washington, DC fans would not purchase new team merchandise if the Redskins changed their name” (qtd. in Lingebach 2). If Native Americans and most of the National Football League fans infer that the name is not derogatory, the Redskins should not have to change their name.
Many people seem to think it is an offensive term that should not be used when referring to the child, although it is used more often than not. Jeb Bush and Donald Trump have certainly had personal run ins with the phrase anchor baby. When Bush was asked if he regretted using the term he responded, "No, do you have a better term? OK, you give me a better term and I 'll use it. I 'm serious.”.
I am going to decide whether or not cities/teams should get rid of their Native American mascots/nicknames. In doing so, evidence will be provided stating that the mascots are not meant to become a slur, Natives are alright with the idea of having a mascot named after them, and what the Supreme Court decides. When opposers view the Washington Redskins, they think of a racial slur that is meant to offend and stereotype Native Americans. It seems as though the opposition has not done the proper research on a stance they are so adamant about. Researchers say that the name change of the Washington Redskins, “coincided with the hiring of a new coach, an Indian named Lone
Finally, no I do not believe that the flag is a symbol of hatred or racism, but I do believe that some individuals do believe that, that’s what the whole history of the flag is based on. I believe that every individual should get solid facts/proof/knowledge on the topic and actually know what is going on, instead of believing everything that they hear and or see on the internet, TV, radio, ect… We already have enough problems in this world as it is. Know what you’re talking about and about your history before you open your mouth and make things an extremely bigger problem than it should
Can we make this sport safe without ruining the thrill? Solving this problem involves not only educating the public, but also eliminating head-first tackles and providing better equipment. Undoubtedly, football is a difficult, treacherous sport but currently no measures are being taken to improve players’ safety. Small things could make a big difference in the NFL. People are getting hurt before our very eyes, and we don’t do a thing about it, we should be appalled our lack of action and let it motivate us to make improvements and needed
The author in this article argue the school board decision to stop using team names such as Chiefs or Indians, but will be permitted using names with no imagery involved such as Warriors. It seems that there are different views in how to use Native American representation. Supporters argue that no harm done in using these names, on the other hand opponents will argue that using these names is degrading the Native American culture. According to the author, many research’s asked the question, what does these names or mascots represent? The author point view shows that these mascots might bring more harm than good.
Slaughterhouse Five does not hold back with the gory imagery, and that is partly the reason why it has been disputed. The fact of the matter is that, that kind of imagery is necessary so that the reader can get some kind of sense, even if it is not first hand knowledge of some of the things that happen in war. The kind of things that the government and most people will not tell you about because it does not fit their agenda and it would make war seem less like the kind of adventure they like to portray it as. In the beginning of the book, Billy Pilgrim, the main character believed that to be truth, that war was
It should also be noted that even though it is not everyone that will hit a woman, sexually harass her or even rape; we are all complicit if we turn a blind eye or dismiss anyone of these incidents as a fluke. As we have noted recently in the scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein (a Hollywood media giant); many people have now come forward saying they were victims of his or that they were in some form aware of what was going on but they kept quiet because of fear. This only goes to show the depth of the issue and how we as society should put more effort into making sure that the victims of such violent acts never have to question whether they will receive support or not or if they will find justice. (-- removed HTML --) (-- removed HTML --) Violence against women is a potential problem in any woman's life as long as the law and society take a lackadaisical approach to it. Walking down the street will forever be a risk as long as cat-calling and stalking is viewed as "men just being men" and not as sexual harassment.
People even said I was a weak and mediocre president because I did not want America to go to war, but of course things end up diffrently than as planned. Imperialism can not be seen as a horrible thing all the time. These countries often do get protection from us, if ever threaten. My intent for American imperialism is for America to be put on the map. Some of my tactics will help America to do just that.
But the minute you step outside, race matters. But we don’t talk about it. We don’t even tell our white partners the small things that piss us off and the things we wish they understood better, because we’re worried they will say we’re overreacting, or we’re being too sensitive. And we don’t want them to say, Look how far we’ve come, just forty years ago it would have been illegal for us to even be a couple blah blah blah, because you know what we’re thinking when they say that? We’re thinking why the fuck should it ever have been illegal anyway?
Jay Smooth helped me understand why many of us do not like discussing “race”. After viewing the video, I will not avoid this conversation anymore because it needs to be addressed. More of us have to discuss this topic or it will never go away. The most important point in this video, is when he states that we do not want to talk about race because we are afraid of confrontation. We are afraid to insult anyone by mistake.
If we knew everything that everyone in there did there could be some miniscule reason for each to be expelled, but they’re not. It is not the job of the Hall of fame to show the best people there was personality wise, but to show the players, this should be how it is, recognizing players for their skill and talent on the field, yet we are not letting a man perfectly talented enough join, for what, a few bets. No, I’m not trying to downplay the scandal, and I agree with the statement that what he did was morally wrong, but we should still recognize him. We should “lay out the fact and let people decide for themselves what was right and wrong” (Stark,
