    I have never said there was nothing said about Native Americans. I have said there is no negative stereotype. And the man you cited never had any connection to the team. He was a fan who paid for his seat and exercised his right to dress as he chose. I believe he has passed away.

    It doesn't matter if the stereotype is negative or "positive", all stereotypes marginalize.

    I'll grant "warrior is a positive stereotype", it's still wrong.

    Let me know when you hear from them. Do you think they all have the same opinion?

    You think "positive racial stereotypes" are good or neutral for society?

    I could say the same about your opinion. Which you seem to think matters while no one else's does in this case.
