  1. That’s a negative! Georgia is attached to the Chattahoochee and Creek Indians and many counties name still exist. I lived in Muscogee and as a kid I asked why and learned. How about teaching people why the name was given versus canceling a history. That is even more offensive.

    1. Also, it’s people like this that damage Atlanta. Look at the All Stars game. Brave translates to a warrior. The chop isn’t their to mock Native Americans. It’s there to celebrate a team. A team that honesty has united a lot of different people. United more people than the politicians that claim that they care. This video is marketed to get views. More views = more money.

  2. It requires money to make money. This is the best secret I have ever discovered we don’t make money we EARN and MULTIPLY money

    1. I have been researching all this while for a digital assets investment and I found Bitcoin to be the most profiting of them all, I’m definitely bouncing on this opportunity to work with Elliot thank you so much.

    2. He has been able to secure a steady inflow of returns off my crypto, it’s was a lost with this whole pandemic situation causing me my job, it’s just amazing to find Mr Michael and there’s been no regrets ever since.

    3. Mr Michael Francis Timothy is a certified Broker I have worked with him for months now living all my trading worries on him to earn FINANCIAL FREEDOM

    4. That won’t bother you if you trade with a professional like Mr Michael Francis Timothy…

  3. Because of the economic crisis , I think investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you’ll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

    1. I’m really happy with my first Investment with expert Goza gave me the assurance that has made me invest without the fear of losing , i got four of my friends involved with him already

    2. I’ll get in touch with his right away, I’m really impressed. Alot of success stories, he must be honest and trustworthy for people to talk this good about him.

  4. Most amazing scene in sports is when they dim the lights and chop in Atlanta. BRAVES keep doing your thing. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it.

  5. Anyone with a snarky punch me in the face like his; you automatically know there’s gonna be a problem.

  6. The name “Redskins” was racist. The “Indians” name at worst was just historically incorrect. There is nothing wrong with being named after a specific warrior tribe.
