Native American mascots as normative expressions of prejudice
« on: August 11, 2019, 12:35:06 PM »
Highlights
• A mascot depicting Native American stereotypes is prevalent at one university campus.

• Exposure to the stereotypic mascot reduced university donations by 5.5%.

• People low in explicit prejudice report lower belonging when exposed to the mascot.

I AM A PROUD FAN OF THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS.  I EVEN HAVE TWO NATIVE AMERICAN CLOSE FRIENDS.  I ASKED THEM HOW THEY FELT ABOUT THE USE OF THE TERM "REDSKINS" AND THE USE OF NATIVE AMERICAN APORTS MASCOTS. THEY SIMPLY LAFFED AND TOLD ME THEY HAVE MUCH BIGGER ISSUES TO WORRY THEM.  APPARENTLY MOST NATIVE AMERICANS FEEL THE SAME.  IF I EVER ENCOUNTERED A NATIVE AMERICAN WHO WAS OFFENDED I WOULD RESPECT THEIR FEELINGS.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
