    Godwin's Law alert!b, 21b, 21""I'm sure you can appreciate the inappropriateness of asking children to dress up like slaves (and kind slave masters), or Jews (and friendly Nazis), or members of any other racial minority group who has struggled in our nation's history."b, 21b, 21That said, I agree with the point being made. The only reason situations like this exist at all is because Native Americans don't have a powerful political lobby (thanks to, you know, their genocide). Same reason we still have Indian mascots even though it'd be wholly inappropriate for any other racial group. b, 21b, 21img src=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/39/FightingWhites.jpg1

  • Yeah, wholly inaproriate. b, 21b, 21img src="http://www.hallofween.com/content/Portals/5/fighting-irish.jpg"1b, 21b, 21Its like having my skin turned into a lampshade every time I look at this.

    font class="post"1b, 21b, 21I'm not arguing that depictions of the Fighting Irish or Vikings are the same as depictions of various Native groups among sports mascots. I'm saying that this is simply not a completely accurate statement:b, 21b, 21

  • part of me says let kids be kids and have fun dressing up...they know nothing of blankets infected w small pox, the slaughtering of the buffalo, etc etc....theyll have plenty of time in the future to discover such nasty historical truths, how their grandparetns rediscoverd nature, smoked dope, claimed Indian ancestry and changed their last name to Littlefeather in the 60s...let the kids play dress up
