Greenfield RecorderAre the days of the Turners Falls High School Indians mascot numbered? The Gill-Montague Regional School Committee opened debate on the issue Tuesday night with a plan for a review of the mascot and the possible adoption of a new one. According to school district and committee officials, several local community members have reached out to the district about changing the mascot.

The plan presented at Tuesday’s meeting would allow for an information-gathering process where members of the community can submit information about the topic to the committee. It would also include public forums, new mascot ideas submitted from the public and then a possible selection process for a new mascot. In the outline released by the district ahead of the meeting, school officials encourage dialogue about the issue.

Questions about the mascot come at a time when concerns about a lack of appreciation for local Native American culture have come to the forefront in Turners Falls. The town is currently conducting a battleground mapping and study, with a $60,000 grant from the National Park Service and an eventual goal of creating a cultural resource center in the town about the battle known as Falls Fight or Peskeompskut Massacre. The study was brought about because of community concerns about the lack of understanding of the area’s indigenous population’s history.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – white people are the worst. Especially white people who are hellbent on proving to the world that they’re one of the good ones. First of all, ya know who uses the term “Native American?” White people. Ya know what Indians call themselves? Indians. Sometimes they call themselves “Natives.” But studies have shown that the vast majority of indigenous people prefer the term “Indian” to “Native American.”

Of course the idiot hippies up in Greenfield and Montague would know this if they had ever spoken with an actual Indian person. But since they chose to live in a white-washed community in Franklin County, presumably because they’re scared of interacting with people who look differently than they do, they just have to assume that Indians get offended by everything just as easily as they do.

“As indigenous people and communities are diverse, there is no consensus on naming, aside from the fact that most people prefer to be referred to by their specific nation or tribe (terms which are themselves contentious).”

Who cares what indigenous people prefer? Only white people from Greenfield should be able to decide what is offensive to them!!!

What’s even more hilarious is that seven years ago this school banned the “Tomahawk chop.” If you’re not familiar with the chop, it’s probably the greatest chant in the history of sports. Currently the Atlanta Braves, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Florida State Seminoles are the ones who have dibs on this chant:

I hate Florida State, but you have to respect that chant. It just gets the juices flowing. Naturally they got rid of it because white people with 1/64th Indian ancestry said it was offensive:

But David P. Detmold of Turners Falls said American Indians find the chop offensive and “that should be the end of it.”

Is that the most SJW thing ever written? Someone finds something else offensive, therefore that should be the end of it. Couldn’t summarize social justice warrior nation any more so that with that one statement.

 

Anyway, the school district posted this on their Facebook page yesterday:

There has been recent and significant interest expressed by citizens of the community who question the appropriateness of the Indians as the Turners Falls High School mascot. We believe this issue is worthy of the school committee’s consideration. However, rather than limit this consideration to the merits and/or detriments of the current mascot, we believe it will be more beneficial to use this occasion as an opportunity to engage in an inclusive, deliberative, and comprehensive process that will lead to the selection of a high school mascot that best suits the aspirations and values of our school community today. Whether or not the outcome of this process is a mascot name change, it is our hope that by engaging in a thoughtful community dialogue we will all learn from one another and build trust and confidence in our ability to work together on a complex social topic of common interest. With these goals in mind we plan to use the following process:

I. Learn Stakeholder Interests
a. Invite two or three people who are knowledgeable about the challenges
posed by the Indian mascot to attend a school committee meeting. After
they make a presentation committee members will have time to ask
questions intended to better understand the presenters’ perspective.

b. Hold two public forums to hear from all those wishing to state their views
on the mascot topic. The goal of these forums will be for school
committee members to actively listen to and come to understand all
perspectives without prejudice or judgement.

See what they did there? They’re inviting two or three people who are “knowledgeable about the challenges posed by the Indian mascot” to explain their grievances at the meeting. But they’re not inviting anyone from the majority of the indigenous population that doesn’t have a problem with it. Very fair and balanced!!

Anyway, this whole thing is basically being led by a married couple from Greenfield, who literally just moved to Montague – the Wisenewski’s:

Those are the whitest people these eyes have ever seen. Mark was the President of the Greenfield Town Council, and his wife Francia served on the School Committee.

They moved out of Greenfield, possibly because Greenfield was too diverse, on August 1 into neighboring Montague. More than likely they did so because they look down on Turners Falls (it’s pretty dumpy):

12669764_1678259365790673_916461137_o

But they brought their social justice warrior crusade with them across the Connecticut River. This would be like someone from Millbury moving to Auburn and telling them at they can’t be the Auburn Rockets anymore because it triggers them about the Challenger explosion. Here’s Mark’s thoughts:

Right. Because showing Indians to be brave warriors is the same thing as portraying Turners Fall residents as fat bastards in white t-shirts. Solid logic right there. And only a stupid, racist, uneducated white person like Mark Wisnewski thinks Indians would rather be called”Native Americans.” Freaking white people. SMH.

His wife is buzzword central too:

Holy buzzwords!!!

Anyway, they’re talking about changing the name to the Eagles, which quite frankly sounds offensive to chipmunks everywhere. The problem is that Franklin County Tech is in that district, and their mascot is already the Eagles. There was even an ad for this school on the article while I was reading it:

Social Justice Warriors get dumber and dumber by the day. It’s up to the normal people of Turners Falls to defend their district from these Greenfield ding-dongs, because you can’t give into these people. You surrendered the tomahawk chop seven years ago. If you give this up too then who knows what they’ll take next.

P.S. Turners Falls is named after a guy who massacred a bunch of Indians, but I guess they’re gonna let that one slide.

    What the fuck is going on in Greenfield? It’s already shitty enough but adding SJWs in the mix is making it even worse.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, its been a while. Back in the early days of the Worcester St. Patrick’s day parade, I seem to recall that the Turner Fall High School band came down to march in the parade for several years They had a big banner being carried in front of the band that proclaimed them as the TFHS Marching Mohawks.

    Thank you

      Yes they marched in that for years but they would have never had a banner that said that. I believe it said the “The TFHS marching Indians”. I never saw “Mohawks” on any Turners sign ever.

    What these SJWs dont know is that once Indians were granted casinos, they gave up all rights, good or bad, to the term Indian. They’re just capitalists now like the rest of us, those who work that is.

    Why is it, when people like this start this bullshit; why don’t people at the meetings grow a set of balls, stand up, look them straight in the face, and tell them to GO FUCK THEMSELVES ? I don’t get it

      You’re a racist homophobe.

      I don’t agree with these fluffers in the article, but your opinion doesn’t matter. The fact that you spew your racist and homophobic shit here is why people think this place is filled with racism. You’re just as bad as Wwy.

    Framing this argument in the context of the two Facebook posters is misleading. I grew up in this town and have always known that Algonquin women, elderly and children were brutally murdered, that the Town was named after the criminal responsible and that the land was stolen and a dam was constructed. The mascott itself isn’t even an accurate depiction of the appearance of the people who were killed. The culture was whitewashed and the crimes hidden.

    If this name stands up, why not name Columbine High School’s football The Shooters? Why not the Mississippi Cotton Pickers instead of Bulldogs? Or the New York Jets?

    Seems like Mrs. SJW should be worried about her weight vs. what others are doing. Bet she even wears a strap on for Friday night. Hubby, the chubby chaser got a real prize there.

    Just put a turban on the mascot & they can remain the Indians (from India)

    It’s sad that two people can possibly change decades of heritage of Turners Falls who have only lived the the town for such a short time. If Turners Falls is so offensive, move back to The Green Wave.
    To change the name of TFHS is to white wash the history of the village and school. Not mention abandoning all those who are previous “Indians”.
    It’s a sad day in the powertown.

    These are the same people who put an end to the outdoor music in downtown Turners Falls. They are entitled, they lie to get what they want and now have a foothold in town politics. Google “Hubie’s Tavern” to get an idea of their tactics. The ironic part is they bought their bar after being the complainers about the music being played there and drove the owner to sell. Then ran the business exactly the way she did. Evil, rotten human beings.

    Trust me us “townies” are already starting to fight back on this issue!!!! Why is it that the school commitee will always take action and listen to people that just move here and no nothing about our community over their own townspeople!?!? Absolutely disgusting!!!!!

    Sports teams are practically the only reason people remember Indians/Natives are still a thing. I suppose these people would rather forget about them and remove any mention of them from our lives.

    LOL on the last line.

    Also, I could be wrong but I don’t think that Mrs. SJW is white. Which, of course, makes them the perfect SJW couple.

    I think my favorite line by Mr. SJW is this one:

    “I care because we don’t determine if something is offensive to other people, they get to decide that.”

    By that logic, he needs to STFU and let the Indians speak for themselves.
