I like the old feather. This one makes me think of a turkey for some reason. Indians are associated with Thanksgiving right?

Now what about the logo itself is racist? Its just a face with feathers. What's racist about that? The fact that the face isn't white? hmm...

And yeah that "fashionable" helmet just looks stupid. Something like the spear from the 60's or maybe a new spin on that would be something I might be in favor of.
Yeah, exactly. Why is a picture of an indian racist?

If an artist paints a picture of a indian, is that inherently racist? Why?
