Ooooooh, how...studly of a name. At least they got a new name. Fans of the Washington Redskins are still dealing with the "Washington Football Team"...

What???

I thought racism was over once we pulled down a bunch of statues, fact checked face book, and changes the picture on a box of pancakes.

Why do they automatically assume Aunt Jemima was used in a disparaging way? These people are idiots.

There was a day when having something named after you was an honor.

The school I attended is called Juniata, the Juniata Indians. Its named after the local Tribe here, obviously the Juniata Indians.

The river running through the county is also named after them, the Juniata river. As you can imagine, a couple snowflakes proposed to rename the school but thankfully they were dismissed....for now.

It shouldn't surprise us and I agree Hippie. It used to be that having something meaningful named after your or have a stature in a public place was an honor.

Here is what is happening / has happened in a little town not 10 miles from where I grew up. The ppl I still visit with occasionally from back home tell me Hiawatha Ks is nearly as liberal as Lawrence is. Makes me puke to think of it.

Back in the day, if a 17 year old wanted to buy a shot gun in Hiawatha, he had to bring a signed note from a parent and a little bit of cash- now this crap:

If it were to pass to change the name, ill recommend we drop the Juniata also and name it after some of the first white settlers in the county.
You know,using the name of the tribe might also offend someone so scrap it all if scrapping part.

I never understood how Uncle Ben was racist. I guess now calling anything or anyone Aunt or Uncle is racist.
I will have to tell my Nephews and nieces that calling me--uncle Tom is racist.

This entire thing has gotten completely out of hand, just so that we don't offend someone. I do not find the word Indian offensive to native Americans.

I wonder how long it will be before the OU Sooners are stripped of their identity. We allegedly took Oklahoma from the Indians in our land runs. The Sooners were the ones that settled before the official land runs.

In fairness to the pale faces, the Supreme Court just gave some back to the Indians and they are winning the rest back with the casinos.

As someone living in the northern US I demand the New York Yankees to change their name. The New York Clowns would be a good replacement. Maybe thats racist too?

Well many of us have called them the "Cleveland Indians" so long I see no reason to stop now. They can be butt hurt all they want. So to me they are Cleveland Indians and that's that.

Many cities and counties in Michigan have Indian names. Better get to work to renaming. My county Is Ogemaw after a chief Named "Ogemaw Kee Kee Too" The singer Cher needs to apologize for her song too.

Why Is the word Indians a derogatory name. What's next are they going to remove the name Indian out of the dictionary?
