NightSide – The New Trail Of Tears

BOSTON (CBS) There has been a lot of debate in recent years over whether schools or professional sports teams should use Native American themed mascots or logos. The PC crowd has expressed outrage over the depictions and “appropriations” of Native American culture, but are they missing the big picture? Naomi Schafer Riley, author of “The New Trail of Tears”, joins NightSide to explain why she thinks the Washington Redskins are irrelevant in the true plight of Native Americans.

Originally broadcast September 13th, 2016.
