Positions

Opinion map Is it offensive for sports teams to use Native American mascots and names?
Position Yes, it is offensive
Argument Historical baggage
“there is a whole history of what happened to the Native Americans, and how they were treated, and not losing sight of that, and the importance of understanding their journey, and their perspective of seeing the use of the tomahawk or the use of the name Algonquin, which is a Native American tribe, could be disrespectful.”
