As someone who is of Native American descent myself I am not bothered at all by the name. I don't think it was chosen to insult us but as a tribute really. What team in the NFL or any other sport ever picked a name to insult or demean someone? The only thing that really bothers me is that in the Snyder era it has become a synonym for futility. That has GOT to change.
I Think it is more of a tribute than it is racist saying.If you go back and read the history of the native americans,nobody was smarter than they were and nobody came close to being the warriors they were.they were only beaten because the white people had technology on their side and greater numbers.I Have a lot more respect for native americans than i ever will eurpoean americans because of the respect they have for life ,land and the environment.

They are nasty to confront but cowards at heart and will usually hide or play dead when challenged
