KC Star demands the Chiefs stop the chop

****ing piece of shit fishwrap

Stop the offensive ‘Arrowhead Chop.’ It’s time for a new Chiefs tradition

link redacted

Quote:
The image of former Kansas City Chiefs star Derrick Johnson banging the war drum at Arrowhead Stadium provided a stark reminder of the home team’s offensive and outdated tradition.

While Johnson led the prelude to last Sunday’s nationally-televised contest between the Chiefs and Green Bay, fans waved their arms back and forth in unison, banding together for the Tomahawk Chop.

It was a bad look for Kansas City — and an affront to Native Americans.

For years, the Chiefs organization has worked with Native American groups to address concerns about the negative stereotypes that have been on display at our home games. The team no longer promotes face paint or headdresses that disrespect the heritage or customs of Native Americans.

And Native Americans have blessed the use of the Chiefs’ war drum in accordance with their customs and rituals.

But the ever-present “Arrowhead Chop” at home games, along with Chiefs officials’ unwillingness to disavow the cheer, are evidence that the team still has more work to do.

“The Arrowhead Chop is part of the game-day experience that is really important to our fans,” said team President Mark Donovan.

But why? Arrowhead Stadium is one of the loudest places to play in the NFL, and there’s no doubt that Chiefs fans will bring the noise — with or without the chop.

The divisive chant is racially insensitive and entirely unnecessary.

“The chop itself is the most disgusting thing you can do in sports,” said Amanda Blackhorse of Arizona to Rally Against Native Mascots, a national group opposed to the use of Native American images in sports.

The continued use of Native American mascots, nicknames and themes in sports dehumanizes Native Americans, Blackhorse said.

“I disagree with so much of what they are doing,” she said of the Chiefs organization’s continued encouragement of the chop. “At this point, they are ignoring the opposition. Shame on them for allowing racism to happen in that stadium.”

Elizabeth Glynn, the CEO of Travois, which helps create affordable housing and economic development opportunities for American Indians, has spoken to leaders of tribal nations and said most are against the use of any imagery that depicts Native Americans in a bad light. Travois works with more than 100 tribes in 22 states.

“No one wants to take away the enjoyment for fans,” Glynn said. “There are a lot of ways to have fun at games. You can do that without labeling and stereotyping an entire group of people.”

Of course, the Chiefs aren’t the only organization that has clung to this offensive celebration. The Tomahawk Chop came under fire earlier this month during the Major League Baseball playoff series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Atlanta Braves.

St. Louis pitcher Ryan Helsley of the Cherokee Nation was asked for his thoughts about the Braves’ game-day tradition. Hensley didn’t mince words, and the Atlanta organization immediately halted its foam tomahawks giveaway.

“I’m trying to use my voice to get awareness out there and try to help people in that way, to help people see another side, help people see our side,” Helsley told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

While sports teams have paid lip service to racial sensitivity, the Washington Redskins have shown no inclination to change their distasteful and inappropriate nickname. Cleveland’s baseball team was painfully slow to phase out its mascot, which belittled Native Americans, Chief Wahoo.

The Chiefs have taken steps in the right direction, but their unwavering commitment to the Arrowhead Chop is confounding and disappointing. What purpose does it serve? And why continue the chant if it offends even a single Native American?

Chiefs fans are among the most loyal and enthusiastic in the NFL. And there’s no doubt they would fill any void left by the absence of the chop with a high-decibel celebration of our team.

November is National Native American Heritage Month. The Chiefs plan to celebrate the culture during a game against Oakland on Dec. 1. But the organization could do far more good if it used this month to reevaluate a practice that perpetuates stereotypes and dehumanizes an entire group.

It’s time for a new Chiefs tradition.

Oh, really?

I can think of a whole host of things more disgusting, starting with Brooke Pryor.
So, if we scalped opposing teams fans and hung them on the outside around the top of Arrowhead, this dumb bitch would consider "The Chop" as more disgusting? What about when a fan gets beat to death at a game? Getting rid if The Chop should be the least of anyone's concerns. ****ing stupid ass idiots.

How are they going to "stop" it?

Levy a fine against every person they see chopping?
Physically remove them from the stadium one by one?
Banning them en masse?
Poisoning their beer?

Even if you wanted to use military tactics, rounding up 60,000 drunk ass people is going to require a lot more than a dozen police officers and a couple of elderly, overweight security guards.

Besides, it's just a damn arm movement and a chant-type of deal. That's it. Rarely is anyone physically harmed (unless the chick in front of you gets chopped on her beehive do). And so far it appears that the people who get offended are not spending their evenings in a sweat lodge or their days spear-killing bison from horseback in order to survive.

Remember, the attendants who are "fetching and carrying" popcorn and beer in the stands are simulating slavery. What about that horrific representation and portrayal of white supremacy?

There is no bottom to victimhood, Mr. ClevelandBronco. No matter how deprived and insulted people get ... they can always find something more unendurable to exploit.

Yep, nobody tells you what to do!

I kind of feel bad for the Star's sports writers. They have nothing to do with the editorial board, but they'll catch all the flak for this.

You should chop your ****ing head off while you're at it. You don't use it anyway. If somebody sews up your neck before you bleed out, you'd probably carry on just fine. Sort of like a chicken.
