  •  I was thinking about (0+ / 0-)

    why the term is so difficult to remove from sports teams.  I think it boils down to it is that it is not viewed as a "negative" derogatory term.  You would never have an issue with other terms - who would want to play on Valley High Sp!cs or k!kes etc?  But this term portrays fierce valor/bravery for many.  So I think they have a hard time viewing it as a negative - even if they could intellectually agree that it is not something they would call someone of native American ancestry.
