Chiefs are racist

How can you guys be fans of a clearly racist team? Teams like the 'Redskins' and the 'Chiefs' are clearly depicting American Indians in an inappropriate manner. As if the white man has not done enough damage to the Indian culture and heritage, football teams like the Chiefs must portray Indians and their mascot and portray American Indians in a demoralizing manner.

The US would never stand for team names like the 'Honkies', 'Spooks', 'RagHeads', 'WOPs', or 'Slants'. Why then should we be subjected to the desecration of the American Indian?

By simply supporting this, what I consider to be a criminal organization, you are backing the negative portrayal of the American Indian. Therefore, I consider you not Chiefs fans, but racists. The path to Arrowhead Stadium is truly a Trail of Tears.

I'm getting very tired of reading posts with the definition of the word chief... It is the connotation of the word that is relevant... In the case of the lame football team that plays in KC it is used in the context of the American Indian as the previously described symbolism attests...

Eating 'Crow'?

Getting 'Siouxed'?

Can't those be classified as Indian slurs?

Like we've said all along dufus, it has NOTHING to do with demeaning Native Americans, but more to do with the man nicknamed 'Chief' that brought the team to KC.

Sheesh, try READING the posts sometime.

You are all idiots. I fail to see why describing why 'Chiefs' is offensive for the 50th time will make a difference.

I suppose you are secure in your one-sided closed in world. It is a shame that you are not only closed minded politically, but, it seems the driving force of your lives is cheering for one of the worst teams in the NFL. The players, coaching and managment of the Chiefs has ALWAYS been sub-par. I suggest you all read a book or spend time with you families rather than piss you time away supporting a losing, racist organization.

VIKINGS. I think all the VIKINGS were white. At least I have never seen a Native American Viking. The Raiders are all white guys. At least the faces on the side of their helmets are white.

By the way Falstaff. I am going to help you out here. Since you don't want to be racist or a hypocrit, you need to start calling me and everyone on the planet by their true ethnicity. I am a German, English, Irish, Native American, American. You better start walking the walk, Or else I will cry.

Here is another thing for you. I have a few friends that happen to be black that are from Haiti. Yet, every time someone wants to be "politically correct" they call them African Americans. I also have an African American friend that is White. Is it not demeaning to the whites in Africa that the Politically Correct Camp has labeled their entire continent as being black.

Here is the kicker for me. I am a NATIVE AMERICAN. Yes, I have Cherokee indian blood (very small amount), but what I am referring too is the fact that I was born and raised and currently live in America just like you. There are millions of people from all races that are just the same, yet the term Native American is reserved for your race. I am the White guy. The politically correct camp has totally outsmarted itself.

Alright, I haven't read any of the posts on this thread, I am merely responding to the topic starter.

Falstaff,
I wonder if you could clear up something for me, how is the word Chiefs in any shape manner or form racist? Clearly some of the examples you gave are racist, but I have never considered chief to be one of those derogatory terms. Let us be realistic, when some one wants to derogatory to an Italian they call them a wop, if a black it is the "n word", but how many times have you heard the term chief in a derogatory manner? "Listen to me you dirty chief!" You just don't get that very often (dare I say at all?).

If you and the other half wits out there on this ridiculous warpath (pun indeed intended) would stop and think that perhaps it is a for honor to these people, you might actually get on the right track. Think about it, Indians were great warriors, chiefs were ussually the greatest warriors in the tribe, so we are taking their name so that when people think of the Chiefs, they think of mighty warriors. It is an honor, not a form of racism.

BTW, what team are you a fan of? Just curious as to why you would be hanging out with a bunch of "racists".
