5. Over 40 years ago, I graduated high school on an Indian Reservation where team name and logo

were based upon Indian Warriors.

The logo and name is still the same.

On the other hand, "Black Sambo-style" Indian themes have pissed me off for at least the same period.

If Celtics are acceptable, so are Warriors and otherwise much ado about nothing ...

EXCEPT how presented (the Indian as a cartoon figure, the drunk Irishman).

Perhaps we should name sports teams after extinct cultures and animals only (Spartans, Condors(nearly and essentially so), DoDo's etc.)

There is much to be proud about in the Indian heritage. Its all in the presentation.
