Offensive Logo

Is this logo of a Native American running with a bowl of water incredibly offensive? What if an armored money truck had a picture of an Orthodox Jew?

How is this the least bit acceptable?

  3. i dont see the problem, if the indian is providing the water to people, the area is known for native indians living there, and it is called silver springs... where is the problem?

  4. maybe because no one REALLY care about natives, people came to their lands, stole them, apropiate them and thought "oh they can fuck off this is now our lands" and so is the thought today by way too much people

  7. @The Guy - The only native Americans in my area are Mexicans. This is like the American Football team the Washington Redskins. What if I started the Los Angeles Blackskins? It's just outrageous that people think they can use cartoonish Native Americans as logos or mascots. They are a race of people, not cartoon characters or something conceived in an advertising firm.

  9. I've always maintained that only the weak of mind can be offended. But I certainly agree with your point that Native Americans are not given the same respect as other ethnic groups. If this were a caricature of another group, heads would roll.

  13. I'm not an American but it doesn't seem that bad to me. But then it doesn't really play on any racial stereotypes etc, so I dunno...

  14. I just don't see how people can happily use a Native American as a logo when whites in America committed genocide against them. It's like a German company using a Jewish boy as a logo - it's just absurd.
