Arizona Rally Against Native Mascots
Not Your Chief protest at Kansas City Chiefs game

Images of Native Americans are used as mascots in sports in the US, including the Kansas City "Chiefs", Washington "Redskins", and Atlanta "Braves".  No other racial group are used as mascots in American sports.  We never hear about teams called the Kansas City "White People", the Atlanta "Black People", the San Francisco "Asian People", or the Phoenix "Mexican People".  A lot of Native Americans don't like the way their racial identity is turned into a cartoon in sports.  That doesn't help people think of them as real human beings.  This was the protest at the Kansas City Chiefs game in Phoenix this summer.  Interview with Amanda Blackhorse.
