    I think San Diego state and Florida State do very good jobs.

    So when they play those drums and mock natives by singing as well as other things, that's okay? Natives aren't insulted? Is that why they protest every Indians game? The chopping and chanting in Atlanta is okay? You'd have to be an idiot not to believe that these things are very insulting.

    I don't understand how they're mocking and insulting Native Americans. They're doing it to get pumped up and after positive events. What's so bad about that? I guess I'm an idiot then .

    If I were a Native American, I think that I would find that Braves hat fairly insulting.

    Not sure how I would feel about the team names, other than the Indians. That one wouldn't bother me. It's so unbelievably stupid that I would just find it to be funny.

    But what about it is insulting? I don't believe there's been an actual explanation as to why someone believes it mocks or insults the Native Americans. I'm curious as to how it does.

    It's just a logo, relax. There's more serious problems in the world. A team's logo/name is just a logo. It's not like they're logo is an Indian guy with a casino chip in his hand or something of that nature.

    As for the Braves cap, I get why Indian and Redskin are offensive. But Brave? How is that different from Vikings, Trojans, Spartans, Knights, Cavaliers etc? Would it be bad to have a team called the Seattle Samurai? Maybe there's something to the etymology that I don't know. I'd like it if someone could actually shed some history on the term and that specific image (I get the issues w/ Chief Wahoo) beyond just "they're racist"?
    I think it's because they don't exist anymore, who was the last person of trojan descent that you met? The Vikings got their name because Minnesota is full of people who are of Swedish, Danish, Norwegian decent, and once again, there are no vikings in the world.

    What's insulting about a team called the redskins? It would be like if New Mexico State called themselves the Apache, New Mexico State sucks at athletics, so would you want your tribe and ancestors to be connected to that?
    It also depends, because the Seminole tribe like that Florida State uses their tribe name for their athletic program(because they are usually good and talked about)

    Why'd you bring up the Redskins? My question was regarding the Braves and their BP hat.

    And I love the quote "it's an A because its the one Willie Mays wears"
    actually he said,

    "Perfectly nice design, but the only Giants BP cap design that really matters is the one that Willie Mays always wears."

    willy doesn't wear the new one, the one that matters is the old version he wears, that is what he is saying.

    what is offensive about it is that it has a screaming indian, it's playing off a stereotype,
