While I'm pleased to see that 50 Senators and tribal organizations representing more than 2 million Native Americans are trying to get the NFL to change their ways, it's really not a surprise (unfortunately) when I read things about NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy:
In a written response, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said "diversity and inclusion" have long been a focus of the NFL.Of course he doesn't see the issue with it and only sees it as a strong and positive image because he looks like this:
"The intent of the team's name has always been to present a strong, positive and respectful image," McCarthy said. "The name is not used by the team or the NFL in any other context, though we respect those that view it differently."
Diversity and inclusion?
Bruno Mars, as much as I love him, doesn't count my big foreheaded White Man (and yes I realize I went all ad hominem on the man and that you may not think of foreheaded as a real word, but I'm okay with all of that).
