Just what percentage of a population needs to be insulted before it becomes wrong? (And I am certainly not suggesting 100%, because you cannot please all the people all the time. You just can't.)
But I find myself wondering about reason behind this number.
Are the majority (but certainly not vast majority) truly not bothered by this because they don't consider it an insult?
Have they lost their sense of cultural pride and just don't care (and being a white guy from the south, what do I know about cultural pride really)?
Do they have a cultural "sticks and stones" pov, and from what you're pointing out in their past and from what I've seen of their present lifestyle, why would they give a fucking fuck about the fucking NFL?
Are their any Native Americans reading this blog who can give me a clue?
I'm with those who believe that simply not watching any movies only serves to take you out of the equation. You're no longer a data point showing a demand for different terms.
If you choose by your definition to truly boycott, that's fine, but in my opinion it only affects your own peace of mind. You become a non-entity to the entertainment industry and will have little to no effect on the outcome.
Thanks nasch. I actually had to go back and re-read what I said to see if I might have implied that.
I do find it interesting that Morgenstern presents an argument that could have come directly from the friend I was speaking of. I don't think I would want to drink beer with both of them at the same time.
And he is correct about one thing about me. I really don't understand how change is a problem. You can point out specific instances or examples of change that suck to you, to be sure, and I might agree on some of them. But in general, change is what makes the world so fascinating as far as I'm concerned.
