NativeAmerican Mascots By: Laila MAy

My claim is that, I don't think that teams and schools should be allowed to use Native American Mascots.

Why Do I think Mascots should not be allowed is because, the Natives might feel like their being put in a bad way. In the artical Insult or horor it states"They say its offensive, even racist,and have targeted the team with lawsuits, letters, a prime-time TV commercial, & Twitter campaign." This quote supports my claim because, it helps people see why Natives might feel disrespected in the way that they were put in.

Another reason people should not use Native American Mascots are because, the Natives might feel offensive in the things the Americans might say or do towards the Natives. A quote that I found in the article New poll finds 9 in 10 Native Americans aren't offended by redskins name. Says that "23 percent of those reached called for Red skins to be retired because of its offensiveness to Native Americans." My quote supports my claim because it tells the percent of people that agreed that Natives were feeling offensive in a way.
