Amanda Blackhorse: The irony of a protest that was held “in a place where the team is called literally a racial slur, and we’re there, asking for visibility when we’re really not visible,” she said, “It just reiterates how much we are discounted.” Daily Beast and the history of the tomahawk chop.

I have to ask - Why are Native Americans so angry that white people (you really don't KNOW these people are white, many have Native ancestry to some degree) use the 'Tomahawk Chop" in their sports chanting? Is it because only Native Americans are allowed the privilege of scalping people with a tomahawk? Is it because it reminds them of THEIR atrocities against their own and white people? And black people? I suggest we rename it the Shillaliegh Clobber - who will get mad then?
