Isn't She Cute!
Cuteness overload engaged. She even brought a slight attitude to the picture making her look all the more cowgirl-ish. On Thursday, as part of the fall break festivities, they had 'Cowboy and Indian' day. The school mascot is the 'Brave' and yesterday, on Friday, we had what they call the 'Tomohawk Trot' where people pledge X amount of money per lap for their child to raise money for the school.
I would think, being a school, that they would be 'politically correct' about that. They could have just dropped the 'Indian' part altogether, especially since (what my friends that are actually from India) call themselves 'browns' and any 'Indian' I know (in the school's poor reference) calls themselves Native American. I know there was a major movement up north to get a lot of that changed, and I'm not saying having grown up on a reservation, that it offends me in a strong repulsive manner. I am saying, you don't see the New York Slaves or New Mexico Niggers or Boston Blacks or even the Washington Whites or Pittsburgh Palefaces.
Maybe someone like @eaglespirit can chime in here, I don't know. But, what are they really saying? Is it a sign of respect? 'Braves' sounds pretty strong, right? But what about less appealing mascot names like, the 'Redskins'? I would love to know where my lovely peoples out there stand on something like this. Personally, I did take a little offense having it be a 'dress-up' day at the school because anyone that knows their history (not the bullshit taught in history books these days) - knows what I'm talking about.
