One thought on “Mascots work the runway

  1. Why are the Virginia Beach City Public Schools still using “Indians” as school mascots? Native people are the only group of living people used in such an undignified manner. It presents a simpleminded approach to the Native American Culture and directly promotes Stereotyping. The following quote speaks for them.
    “This is a human rights issue, we are being denied the most basic respect. As long as our people are perceived as cartoon characters or static beings locked in the past, our socio-economic problems will never be seriously addressed. Also, this issue of imagery has a direct correlation with violence against Indian people and the high suicide rate of our youth.”
    Michael S. Haney (Seminole)
