Stacey on “Braves” 2

Our friend Stacey has a new blog of her own now, over on MySpace. She has a wonderful letter today to Ypsi School superintendent James Hawkins on the “Braves” issue. As a native American, Stacey provides a wonderfully detailed, heartfelt and articulate statement on what the name means to her and other native Americans. Everyone, no matter what majority group they may nominally belong to, is also probably also a member of a minority group in some aspect of their life or will be at some point. As such, we must remember, that especially in a democracy, the majority must also remain cognizant of the feelings and rights of minorities. As a society it is our responsibility to do what is best for both the few and the many.
