Oneida Indian Nation Signs On: Respect Native American Wishes and Change the Mascot Redskins name.by Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Oct. 29, 2013, under Art, Cultura, Culture, Mexican-American / Chicano political activism, Native American, Native American and Indigenous Activism
The Native American community has been fighting this fight for a long time now, but what is new is finding out the Oneida Indian Nation is now signing on to “Change the Mascot” in an effort to change the Redskins name.
You would think after the Native American genocide in the United States, Americans and the NFL commissioner would have the same level of respect we have for others who have suffered from other forms of genocide when evil wicked leader Hitler sent millions to gas chambers and mass graves.
That said, we would like our Native American cousins to know that Mexican American Chicanos (with our population numbers) will do what it takes to write Roger Goodell to ask him the change the mascot, we will also send him a twitter message via @Roger_Goodell and @nflcommish
If you want writer Mr. Goodell, please send him a note at his email address which is: Roger.Goodell2@nfl.net
The NFL Address is:
National Football League
Attn: Roger Goodell Commissioner
280 Park Avenue
New York New York,10017
Or to phone him indirectly or to at least leave a message you can call 1 (212) 450-2000 or 1 (212) 450 2027
