A more recent, less scientific poll (it was conducted over the web with individuals who self-identified as Native American) found that still a clear majority were not offended. The most common emotion elicited among Native Americans by the team’s name? “Pride.”
You can see the exasperation in the writing of the Washington Post reporter who wrote up these studies.
“That finding,” she wrote, “is from a recent survey and — as you probably remember, even if you’ve tried to forget — falls in line with what a Washington Post poll found three years ago and an Annenberg Public Policy Center poll found 12 years before that.”
It’s upsetting to our liberal establishment when the supposed victims they are trying to “white-knight” don’t feel wronged in the first place. That won’t stop the elites though.
