    I've had it. I've had much worse flu cases than Covid. It was incredibly mild. Hell, I was out playing golf while I had it. People that live in common sense states (Florida/Texas) realize how overblown this is. 99% survival rate, and much higher for people under 60 without other underlying conditions. We have a case of fear mongering by dipshit liberal states (like Illinois) where they are categorizing every freaking death as Covid related while ignoring every other condition the elderly person has. Then you got the mask sheep. Those masks are really working well out in California. LMAO!!!

    They just did a condensed 60 game schedule with pretty minor issues. This is absolutely ridiculous and public figures pushing this fear mongering should be ashamed of themselves

    It was done out of HHS. The same agency that did it to poor whites and blacks.

    Explained forced sterilization which was a widespread issue. paying for scalps...well we were pretty much at war with them for 100 years. Any guesses how many colonists scalps they took too?

    What your describing happened to multiple ethnic groups at that time and was driven by doctors thinking it was the best case for poor girls. It happened to a lot of black women and poor rural whites as well. Absolutely despicable for all involved, but it wasnt limited to native americans.

    There is one reported attempt, and even there the evidence is dubious as there isnt any record of it actually being done - just considered. Further, if it was carried out, it didnt work in that circumstance. but yeah, lets attribute all the indian deaths due to diseases, including influenza, typhus, and cholera to a couple smallpox blankets. LMAO!!! Lets also just conveniently ignore the early american governments attempts to vaccinate indians from smallpox too (which largely proved successful in the early 1800s) so that we can distort history and claim genocide.
  15. ChiSox1917

    Yes because 75-90% of native american deaths were due to disease. Genocide requires intent, not just the outcome

    Every country has a racist past. What does that have to do with anything? And hell america is easily one of the least racist in comparison (honestly thinking otherwise just exposes ignorance of world history). when the majority of native americans attribute pride as their closest thought towards sports teams using their imagery as mascots, why does the vocal minorities opinions trump theirs? We do not have a majority of native americans speaking out about the indians changing their name. Hell id bet that more white liberals are offended by the term “indians” than actual indians.

    Do the sox even have another need?

    Are the sox as currently constructed the favorites to win the AL next year? If no, then theres your answer. we need pitching. Lots of pitching.

    We need to wipe away any and all native american imagery until the culture is forgotten about. How dare these teams try to honor or admire their culture!

    Wow. Thats the equivalent of getting upset over being called british instead of welsh

    I mean i know reading comprehension isnt your strong suit, but where did i ever claim that didnt happen or was ok? although id argue genocide is probably a stretch, but racially motivated forced removal is definitely true. You do realize a lot of natives refer to themselves as “indians” right? Hell the majority prefer being called american indian over other terms. What does it matter that the term was european? In that context, should we call them something other than native americans too since we assigned a european identity to the continent the natives were on?

    To an individual, no you stop. Or at least try to be considerate - although with some people thats not possible. however like i said above, this is a bit more complicated. This is a team name that reflects a group of people. Those people have opinions ranging from being offended by the use of the name to being proud of its usage. You cannot appease both groups and trying to do so only puts one groups opinions as superior to the others which isn’t right. and also, the elimination of native american mascots will have the opposite affect on society long term. Yeah maybe there will be a short term look at bringing native american culture and their history to light, but it wont last long. the forced removal of native ameican imagery in sports will ultimately lead to the erasure of indigineous culture from mainstream society Ill use illinois as an example. The school is considering changing their mascot to the kingfisher. They are still the illini, but have not used the chief symbolism for about 15 years now. When kids used to get in they would be introduced to the history of the illiniwek confederation. These days they dont. While the chief was never a real person and was more of a symbol, it still created a continuation and recognition of the illiniwek. It was something the student body rallied around and honored. It was never demeaned or ridiculed or presented in anything other than a positive light. Now future generations will have no knowledge of the illiniwek confederation, and instead will bond over a stupid looking bird.

    You really need a broader world history perspective if you believe this
