The word native simply means the area you were born in. im german, french, irish and english. i was born in new orleans. there for i am native to new orleans and america. YOUR TERMILOGY IS WRONG.
Once again Non-Natives don't understand or even try to understand.
They think American Indians being mascots is discrimination....its to honor the first peoples of America...and so black people stop dressing like klingons and telling blatant lies, like they were in America first.(yes im black)
Banning mascots of any kind is pure lunacy. Kinda describes politicians, doesnt it? Theyre all loonytoons, starting with nobama!
Just goes to show you how stupid these politicaly correct people are. i hope they get sued by the cherokee tribe for exclusion.
