The automakerCherokee brand namefor about 45 years, but Chuck Hoskin Jr., principal chief of the Cherokee Nation, thinks enough is enough.“I think we’re in a day and age in this country where it’s time for both corporations and team sports to retire the use of Native American names, images and mascots from their products, team jerseys and sports in general,” Hoskin
.“I’m sure this comes from a place that is well-intended, but it does not honor us by having our name plastered on the side of a car.”Jeep responded to Hoskin’s pointed remarks by claiming the Cherokee name is a tribute. Read more: HuffPost »
Explainer: Mount Etna puts on its latest spectacular show
Mount Etna, the volcano that towers over eastern Sicily, evokes superlatives
Especially since jeep is now owned by an Italian brand, Fiat. Didn't that raping murderous 'discoverer' Christopher Columbus hail from Italy? Funny when I shopped for a new SUV and I saw the Jeep Cherokee I NEVER THOUGHT OF the Cherokee Indian! WTH PEOPLE! Cleveland Indians, The Redskins etc StopBeingSoSensitive No ones out to hurt you Personally! No ones trying to degrade you! Geeez Breathe
Daft punk Reveal Reasons for break up 2021 via YouTube Can they sue? As a citizen of the United States, I am sick and tired of seeing 'American' plastered on the sides of airplanes. And I want the Yankees to change their name. Lest we forget that the Cherokee not only supported the Confederacy during the Civil War, but also owned slaves, including blacks! Don Cheadle's ancestors were slaves to the Cherokee! So, sit your a$$ down!
Is there anything you North American’s do that is not offensive, insulting or demeaning? Things are out of control. I’d consider it an honor. But having it on casinos is okay? Kc chiefs? Florida state seminoles ? .....so change the name How long has Jeep has been using that name? I mean get over it. If you don’t like should have something way back when they used it.
Replace it with 'savage'🤣 Get over it Chief! The Paratroopers holler 'Geronimo' when bailing outter of plane! The Pontiac had a Full Bonnet Chief on the Hood of the car! I think the Apache's would be a better tribe, they really were warriors! Called it the American then. ? Does it disgrace, dishonor, or demean the Cherokee people in any way? How is it harming the image of the Cherokee? Does anyone even think anything about the Cherokee peoples when they see or talk about this car? Much ado about nothing. The chief needs to get over himself.
Shit. Should i stop asking for my coffee in its natural color? Or is it too soon? Shit. Should i stop asking for my coffee in its natural color? Or is it too soon? I thought they were gonna rename the new one Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer anyway! Utter PC wokeism nonsense, it would of honored them if they had been received royalties for the branding since 1974, they haven't, that is the bottom line.
Its been the name for ages and just now bothers them? There’s a speedway and diner named Cherokee. This BS is getting out of hand!!! Next PETA will have all animals banned, Illiterate people will complain because they don’t understand the names, No more colors due to the Colorblind have sued! Enough is Enough!!! 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️
Maybe they should have a statue torn down instead... This would be like forbidding the name Swiss, or Italian or Greece. It makes no sense. Like the Cherokees don’t have bigger problems to worry about? This is why they have bigger problems to worry about! They don’t worry about the right problems… Are you effing kidding me? Jeep please don’t even consider such a ridiculous request.
Casinos taking advantage of people addicted to gambling do? Oh good grief! Get a life. Should ask for royalties. Cancel culture assholes. Please, Cherokee Nation, spend your time & resources doing something productive that can ACTUALLY help your nation Agree! They have been trampled upon too long and need to be speaking out more.
The second option, the Jeep Grand Salamander just doesn’t have the same ring to it. They need to give all the Cherokee Nation their car for the fee of using their name. He's right. One of these days, auto manufacturers will come up with names that make more sense like the Golden Chariot or the Rock Climber
No problem. Remove the name. Let's forget the first nations forever! Call it the 'fighting irish' if they still like racial slurs as vehicles What they should really do is ask for royalties to fund their nation. Well, they can suck it. 🤷♂️
