Are CherokeeNation the biggest hypocrites ever? Cherokee were big slave-owners and -traders of Negro slaves who picked cotton for Cherokee. In Cherokee law descendants of black women could not be citizens. Now they claim moral high ground? So he never speaks up about racism or police brutality. Never heard a word from him re G Floyd's murder, increased recent attacks on people of the Asian race nor any other injustice against other ethnicities/races but he's offended by the use of a word being placed on a vehicle?
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! I’m a Cherokee, we have serious claims we can claim, but, I like seeing Indian references used. DON’T CHANGE ANY NAMES including blacks. It’s complimentary! Unless it’s degrading like cat litter, toilet products etc... don’t be stupid. Let it go!!!!!
You gotta love the yt ppl in the comments say. They should be happy someone used their name. They should cut a deal…. Very on brand with history I would say re-name to the Jeep Omaha after the beach at Normandy due to Jeep's WWII lineage, but then ...... Get over it 🙄 What stup1dity How about renaming it the JEEP Israelite... Hell, 40 years of offroading more than qualifies that tribe as experts. Plus a copy of exodus included in the owners manual...
This shit is ridiculous This fake cultural appropriation BS has to stop. It's not like they give you a tomahawk with every SUV. Boo hoo. Poor crybaby suddenly has a problem after all these years. Jeep Grand SUV or Jeep SUV has a nice ring to it not gonna lie Good. Whites slaughtered all the First Nations
As a cherokee, the word just means 'the people'. This article is I'll conceived, to be polite. So...where were these offended people like 35 years ago? Bravo people are so soft these days
