Default Jeep "Cherokee" is Offensive

The Chief of the Cherokee Nation, Chuck Hoskin, Jr. (yes, really) says Jeep needs to quit using Cherokee as a model name because it's offensive. How the hell did we get here?

I've heard they're concentrated more on the Dallas Cowboys name right now because they make all cowboys look like loser sissies. After they change their name to The Dallas Football Club they'll consider going after Jeep.

Not so much the Cowboys as the Rangers. For real. A statue of a Texas Ranger was removed from Love Field that had been there since 1962 during the Great Statue Massacre. Now they want the Texas Rangers to drop the name and they want to rename the Texas Ranger law enforcement organization citing racist and brutal tactics long ago.
