Your Name Offends Us: NCAA Bans Indian Mascots for Postseason

The NCAA has banned Indian names and mascots at postseason events. One question: if a given people group (tribe, in this case) is not offended by the use of its name and/or likeness by a college athletic department, but outsiders without any ties to that group deem the group’s name, itself, to be “hostile or abusive,” is our society actually moving in a positive direction?
