If people were rational, there would not be anything called a “cancel culture”.
.
It’s political correctness run amok!
.
It’s extremist liberals and their mental illness!!

The very first time someone put those two words together… they went too far.

It just shows how off their rocker the white liberal elite media is!
This boy is Native American heritage, and has lived on reservations.
He actually has every right to dress like that! The liberal american media is sick
prejudiced and is working to divide and hurt America!

Oh heck yes! by several years … along with this woke cxxp …. we’re way down the path of the “me” & entitlement mentality imho…to me – the hard question is, how do we reverse it and get back to reason? … anybody here on CC want to run for any kind of political office to start to get us back to common sense?

One of Black Panther founders was released from Alameda county Santa Rita Jail and reporters were on hand. One reporter asked if he had considered running for public office?
His response was,
“No, I have too much respect for the truth”

stupid, absolutely stupid. Just another race baiting person complaining about something that isn’t there.
“Oh CR^P!!! there is a piece of white paper!!!!” “how do I spin this to be racist”
glass houses and stones.

This isn’t cancel culture or political correctness. This is perpetuation of a racial trope that comes from Hollywood depictions of Native Americans. The “tomahawk chop” chant is as well. This is 2023, for crying out loud. Time to hang up these depictions. That this boy has Native American heritage (allegedly) doesn’t matter.

I do have an objection to people going after this young man, however. He learns from his parents and from other Kansas City fans. It is a shame that he has been singled out. Had this come across my Twitter feed, I would not have commented despite my objections. And I oppose thought leaders going after him. There are other ways to battle old racial tropes besides exploiting a boy (who doesn’t know better) as an example. BTW, Fox News is exploiting this boy as well by featuring him in their piect.

The writer for Deadspin Sports and every other d-bag on X that contributed to the defamation of this kid should be sued into poverty. There’s such a lack of ACTUAL racism in this country that the race hustlers have to label “racist” that which is not.

Yikes. How about, live and let live. Does this hurt you in any way? No? Then leave everyone be to do what they wish.

And so are you with your long winded rant, GALB!

That little boy is so darn cute!!

Someone is always trying to make waves, … Bad Waves.
It’s just the way it is now days and which I’m sick & tired of hearing.
Hope the parents take legal actions just to make Good Waves!

Hey Biden voters. The media are all liberals. Don’t like this? Don’t like BLM, Antifa, fake cries of racism. Don’t like forced vaccines? Don’t like masks? Don’t like high gas prices and dependence on foreign countries for our energy (that leads to inflation)? Don’t like all of these wars breaking out globally? Well then do something! For once, don’t vote Democrat in Nov 2024. Whether it’s the brain dead Biden or some other crook, it will be more of the same. Think about it. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result.

Has it gone too far? That’s a rhetorical question right?

The problem with these virtue signalers is not necessarily what they are wound up about. The problem is that they don’t check whether or not what they are hearing is true. They’d rather get angry than actually check if their trigger is fake news.
The Dem playbook is to find a potentially volatile story who’s main characters are bad white oppressors doing bad things to good marginalized people. Pitch it to their media lackeys. The media edits out the audio and video that doesn’t meet their approval and amps up the volume to the masses. Their stupid followers go nuts. Later, cooler heads look into the accusations and realize that the story is 99% bs and slanted to demonize a Dem enemy. But by then the pinheads have made up their minds.
We’ve seen this play out with the Covington kids, Michael Brown’s killing, the Nascar noose, border patrol agents whipping illegal immigrants, Jesse Smollett, Kyle Rittenhouse, Treyvon Martin, and many others. Now this poor kid gets the treatment, even though he was wearing black AND red face paint (the team colors) and, most importantly, IS ACTUALLY NATIVE AMERICAN. In every case, people were cancelled, the left went ballistic, and at times actual riots broke out and people died. All because dumb people didn’t question the stories that their trusted sources fed them. And many of these same dumb people (some posting here on Claycord) still believe them.
Real racism, sexism, homophobia, abuse, etc has no place in our society. The same goes for sensationalized lies who’s only purpose is to gin up faux furor.

He’ll probably own a stake in the Chiefs when this is over.

I pay attention to the entertainment industry and have been watching the fallout from the foolish big corporate leaders who thought their customers wanted “woke” content. Obviously the customers didn’t want it. Now those giants are in big trouble plus the strike added more problems. The public wanted entertainment not social studies courses.

Call it what it is. It is some colored folk trying to blame White people for their own ills. This kid had nothing to do with the over 580 people murdered in Chicago so far this year. It had nothing to do with inner city high school seniors that only read and comprehend at a sixth grade level. The kid or anyone else should be able to paint their face any color they choose. It is time to stand up to race baiters and the woke.

Yeah, the author of the Deadspin article is black. But the real problem people are white suburban Karens.

I found the quality of the makeup to be sub-par. His parents could do better. The rest of the custom was pretty nice.

Yes it has. If you would ask an American Native Indian if that bothered them they would so no.

What you would find is N As are like anyone else. Some would approve and some wouldn’t. I say who cares what they think do what you want when it comes to painting your face for a football game.

Can’t dignify this story with a comment except he got a photo with some Raiderettes. Now I know what’ve been missing.

That makes the Raiderettes racist in the eyes of the woke. Cancel the cheerleaders!!!
It’s like we are all living in a bad Ben Stiller movie.

Poor kid. Just wanted to go to the game and have a good time. Some people are just looking to cause problems for others. Makes them feel important.

Newsom doesn’t seem to know how to stick to the question. His excuse is the facts are not on his side.

Concord74 December 2, 2023 - 9:28 AM - 9:28 AM

I heard a rumor or maybe an editorial that the Washington team is considering changing back to the REDSKINS mascot!!
Go Riggins! Go Rypien!
Newsom is a joke and so is this idiotic affront on this child!!

S December 2, 2023 - 10:19 AM - 10:19 AM

yeah… I read an article a short bit ago that it is being considered. wasn’t a rag news source, but can’t remember where I saw it.
