Why Native American Mascots aren't offensive By willie vela

I do think that teams and schools should be allowed to use Native Americans as mascots.

Here is a photo of the redskins logo

Native Americans are not offended by the names. For example according to The Washington Post " Th e Washington Redskins team, our fans and community have always believed our name represents honor, respect, and pride." Today's Washington posts shows Native Americans agree. The reason this quote is supporting my claim is because it shows that the names don't offend most Native Americans. They say that their name represents respect, honor, and pride.

The names and mascots honor the Native Americans. According to an article named insult or honor, " We seminoles embrace the mascot" says James Billie, the tribes chairman. They honor us. I mainly chose this quote because it is a Native telling us they aren't offended. They say that it honors them.
