Someone please enlighten me on why the Chiefs should change their name.
I guess if one has to go, they all do. Same for the Indians, black hawks, and other "insensitive" team names. This just keeps getting more and more pathetic.
Going after the Chiefs is an overreach.
They had my sympathy until they wanted the chiefs to also change their name.
They're taking this too far! Pathetic
In my humble opinion, the names should stay. Where is the line drawn? Maybe PETA gets involved next, and wants teams with animal names changed.
I just don't think the name is meant to be derogatory. At first I was impartial. Now that the same people are possibly targeting the chiefs, I think ive leaned over to not changing the name. Just my opinion though.
FINE - PERFECT - ENOUGH!!!!!
They are sending a message that they don't want to be recognized at all if they go after "Chiefs". Make them happy and take anything Indian related and eliminate it like they never existed including the Casinos, text books, whatever. Let them enjoy themselves while the rest of the world says "who?".

LOL the people who said redskins was offensive because native americans said so are now questioning chiefs being offensive because native americans said so? Hypocrisy is funny.
Some african americans should accuse Amanda Blackhorse of her last name being offensive and demand she change it.
"Hater" is a term used by weak minded people in the face of legitimate criticism.

I can't take this movement seriously because they've been going so hard after the Washington Redskins and I've heard virtually no mention of the Cleveland Indians and their Chief Wahoo logo/mascot (possibly the most racist logo/mascot I've ever seen).
RAIDERS. ARE. BACK.
And if the Chiefs need to go bc of their arrow logo and Warpaint the horse, then so do the Utes, the Seminoles, the Braves, the Reds, the Chippewas, AND the SD State Aztecs, the University of Hawaii Warriors. Just bc those two aren't based on American Indians, it doesn't mean that we should ignore the fact that they allude to racial groups.
RAIDERS. ARE. BACK.
"They also want to get rid of the Chiefs name."
"They" is one person named in the article, plus her sister. The article makes it quite clear that she doesn't have a case against the Chiefs name, only wanting them "to do the right thing".
Just because one crazy person carries the move to change the Redskins name doesn't make the whole thing wrong.
Hope this group rallies to close the Mohegan Sun Casino which portrays the Mashantucket Pequots as a bunch degenerate gamblers while praying on people with all sorts of gambling addictions. I've seen statues of Indians holding cards in their hands and they own the casino. That's acceptable but the name Chiefs isn't?
