Summary

He said he’ll still remain devoted to “his team.”So I don’t expect Super Bowl LIV between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers to be any different than the AFC championship game, or any of the Chiefs games before for that matter.Native American mascots commodify indigenous peoples and our cultures; they make us and our heritage into images and words and logos to be sold by white people to other non-Native people. No, this message was solely for any Native American in Chicago who, unaware of the results of the game, might find themselves in middle of a group of Blackhawk fans who want to keep the name and mascot and might launch into a rage when they see a real Native and assume she or he was the one who wanted a fight.Such fear isn’t just wild speculation: I lived in Washington D.C. in 2017 and quickly learned that there are certain sports bars into which Native Americans cannot go during football season without sending at least one fan of the city’s racist-themed football team into a vicious rage, barking things like, “Keep the name!” and “I’m a quarter Cherokee and I don’t have a problem with it, you P.C. libtard!”“Just go somewhere else,” I was once told by a D.C. bartender, as he eyed a few local football fans billowing into a fireball of fury at the end of the restaurant.
