View Full Version : Kansas City Chiefs name is also offensive and should be changed.

According to the plaintiff in the Redskins trademark lawsuit.




The Washington Redskins aren’t the only NFL team whose name bothers some Native Americans.

The Kansas City Chiefs should also change their name to avoid giving offense, according to Amanda Blackhorse, the lead plaintiff in the case that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office just decided against the Redskins.

“I’m not sure there’s anything the [Chiefs] can do at this point other than look for another name,” Blackhorse told the Kansas City Star. “They could be the team that says, ‘You know what? We understand the issue and we don’t want to be Dan Snyder and fight this in court forever. We want to do the right thing and move forward and avoid this entire battle.’ I’m sure fans will be upset, but still, that’s doing the right thing. If they want to be sensitive to Native American people, that’s the thing to do.”

Blackhorse’s sister, Kristy Blackhorse, is part of a group of Native Americans in Arizona who plan to protest at two Cardinals games this season — not only when the Redskins come to town in October, but also when the Chiefs come to town in December.

At some point people need to put their foot down and put an end to all this PC bull****.

The funny thing is the Chiefs name has nothing to do with injuns. Granted, we do call our stadium Arrowhead to the disdain of small rocks everywhere but that's a different story.

I read a bunch of articles about this garbage yesterday, including one written by the woman leading this charge. Liberal America is ruining this country.

There are some differences that will make it much tougher to succeed with action against the Chiefs, manly because their founders nickname was actually "Chief", so the Chiefs will rightly argue their name is not in reference to Native American Tribes.

They are already targeting small HS in Ohio with Native American names. They know the schools dont have the money to fight. Knock off some small schools and then moving up the chain.

Thanks Libs.

Just the normal liberal ideas, make everyone else believe what you believe and God forbid if anyone's feelings get hurt.

actually i thought Chiefs would be the opposite. if a team identifies themselves as "chiefs", i would think they take the associate a "Chief" as strong and whatever other pride filled sentiment

like cowboys, kings, vikings

They should change the Chargers name because it could be considered offensive to electricity, or change the 49ers because it could possibly make the number 48 feel inadequate

No it isn't. It literally means red skin, which was used to describe Native Indians. They even referred to themselves as red skins.

That's the part I don't get. Most of these name are chosen because of the precieved strength or other quality the logo represents. My high school used to be the "Indians" with a chief as the mascot/logo. PC crap got out of hand an now they are the "Lakers" given all the lakes in the area.

It would be one thing teams were named "The Redskinned Savages", "Injuns" , or "Uppity Negros" but "Chief" and "Indian" don't strike me as insulting. Redskins is getting a little big close to the line, maybe, I can imagine if their was a team named the "Blacks" it would probably be offensive to some. Still, offending someone or even a lot of people shouldn't be a matter of a lawsuit.

I have some native blood and grew up near a large reservation but never heard anyone refer to Natives as "redskins". However, the full blooded natives with darker skin did sometimes have a redish tint to them in the summer when they darkened up a little in the sun. So, I'm sure that is probably the real meaning behind it, nothing to do with scalps. The scalp thing is probably a liberal's idea of how to make it look worse.
