We are people, not your mascots.

As the grandson of an Oklahoma Choctaw, I am deeply sensitive to the negative impact of stereotypes. Though no one looks at me and says, “He’s Native,” I try to use my multiple privileges to push back against the use of racists sport mascots and logos. We must understand that the systematic steps employed by the U.S. government to “Kill the Indian and save the man” continues to have broad reaching impacts. It is beyond time to #ChangeTheName.
