When the comes that YOU people find yourselves in the "minority" and NOBODY is listening to or caring about YOUR wishes, opinions, or desires, I want all of you to remember your comments on this and MANY other topics. The British Empire lost, so did the "South". Every attempt ya'll have made to make this a cold, cruel, uncaring, unsympathetic, greedy, selfish world is eventually undone by the general GOOD-ness, compassion, and philanthropy of DECENT AMERICANS. WE resent YOU claiming to be the face and voice of US. You are witches, rapists, pedophiles, addicts, blasphemers, sodomites, and terrorists. There are NO "responses" on here by other Natives because of the venomous attacks that will occur after THIS is posted. "YOU can't handle the truth!" You want to live in some imaginary Utopia where only whites are rich and have any say-so about issues and events. YOU think you know what best for everybody else and you can't even raise your own CHILDREN. McVeigh, Loughner, Columbine, Manson, Dahmer on and on and on...
you mean you people like John Allen Muhammad, lee body salvo, Anthony sowell and Wayne Williams?

That would be 4 people slandered by the "mainstream media" and "liberal interests" according to YOU people! I think they are citizens who LEARNED the "American Way" FROM "Americans". But I'll play your game...Who came FIRST? Who was the first killers, criminals, thieves, and GANGSTERS in America? BTW, 2 of these killers are from the SAME cases and one of THEM was a KID who had his mind manipulated by a "disgruntled former U.S. soldier". Sowell is just nuts and Nobody but YOU and the judge are convinced that Williams is guilty. If you named EVERY "pyscho" of "color" that existed in American history, the list wouldn't be as long as the list of WHITE nutjobs in the last 30 years. PERIOD. Your vile and perverted ways pollute ALL aspects and areas of GOOD & DECENT people's lives and the confused masses just follow along with the "status quo" because they're AFRAID of being thought of as compassionate or "PC". The "C" stands for CORRECT. There is no need for RUDE, IMPOLITE, IGNORANT, and HATEFUL people, but YOU people have decided that it is OUR "legacy" to be the most obnoxious, crude, and TOXIC people on Earth, EVER. What ever happened to "the Home of the Brave"? Are you too afraid to be NICE? Too afraid to be seen as CARING? "Land of the Free" does NOT mean free to eff people over, at any cost. You may NOT be able to afford the costs if, "WE the people" continue in YOUR direction. This is AMERICA. If you want to live in Anarchy, without regard for your fellow man - MOVE

You have become everything you hate.
Eygptians were white? LOL! Yeah, if you believe that revisionist drivel spewed by the "MSM". Cleopatra didn't look like Liz Taylor. The Chinese were "civilized" about a thousand years BEFORE ya'll crawled out of the caves! "white" people are the BANE of civilization!

The land wasn't "stolen" because American Indians did not have a concept of land ownership. Additionally, which tribe do you want to pay for Ohio - the ones who built the mounds 2,000 years ago, but were wiped out by later tribes? The ones in Ohio when the Pilgrims landed? They were not here when the State was formed, as they were driven out by other tribes by then.
Who pays? The French? The English? The Colonial government? The U.S. government?
There was a war. The Indians here in the late 18th century lost the war. Since when doe the losers dictate terms?
How are those things going in Iraq right now?

As always, I'm in favor of equal rights and fairness. Now, in Ohio we have Zips, Buckeyes, Bearcats, Rockets, Bobcats, Golden Flashes and Falcons. So, I think it's fair that Miami had to change their mascot to be a non-human, however I feel like they should have just dropped the "red" bit entirely. They should have gone with something that really profiled their students well. Unfortunately, I can't think of any particularly weak minded, spoiled, over-entitled and generally dumb animals to suggest for next time...

Maybe the Miami University Pussies? Though we have a couple of cat teams already...

How about the Ohio University campus in Athens creating a dorm next year solely for those who have no idea what gender they are. You would think by the time they reached university level they would have that all figured out. Guess not.

I have Native blood in me. Specifically the Miami. I am disappointed by this news. I always pay attention to the university's athletic department becuase they honor my people with their recognition of us.

<quoted text>What's the relationship between native Americans and an elite private college? Please show us an independent, self-governing tribe, reservation land and policies exempt from local and state government. The Seneca in western NY have maintained their sovereign rights through constant battle with NY state. I never hear anything about the Miami tribe and their fight for justice. I'm all for reparations for native Americans but removing "offensive" mascots from athletic teams is a lame, negligible attempt to appear politically correct and sensitive while ignoring real problems/issues within their communities. It's the same mentality of the morons who call BP environmental terrorists. I'm no fan of the negative environmental impact of our fossil fuel culture but as long as I use it I'm equally responsible. Put your money where your mouth is and share/give your property back to it's original owners and adopt an oil-free amish lifestyle so you don't contribute to the Eco-terrorism that is big oil.
Again, your ignorance is showing. Miami is a state school not private and as for the relatinship between the two, pick up a book or two about the history of Miami University or the Miami tribe. In such a book you might learn about the history of the tribe and why they were forced to give up their lands (it's called betting on the wrong horse whereas the Seneca's did not). And your metaphor of Big-oil (where the heck did that come from) is more off-target and incorrect, not really pertinate to the conversation and totally lacking in thought and judgement. Looks like Sly got all of the brains in that family.

You bore me, run along and play. I'm finished with you.

The fact is the indians didn't complain at all. It was the same bunch of jewish lawyers who removed prayer from schools, and references to Christmas, and nativity scenes, and keep trying to remove "under God" from the pledge of allegiance. The same bunch of communists that want to force homosexuality down everybody's throat and into the military.

The political correctness has to end! The "M" with the Indiana head logo has long been associated with Miami University and dignifies the Miami Indian tribe from which the University obtained its name. As an alumni, I am deeply ashamed of my alma mater for this decision, as I was when they changed the mascot to the newly invented "Redhawks" a few years ago. One of the reasons I will never donate a dime to the Univesity again.
