As the NCAA prepares to meet to discuss the appropriateness of Native American nicknames, the Seminole tribe in Florida released a statement. "We feel that it is an honor and a reflection of [Florida State] University to represent the spirit of the Seminole Tribe of Florida," said Max Osceola, a Tribal councilman. "Any other organization, people or Tribes should respect our wishes as we would respect their wishes."

I'm betting that the desire of the tribe in this case will be ignored by the PC forces who would desire not to offend. As a result, what the Seminoles see as a compliment to themselves, will be eliminated, dishonoring them. Gotta love the PC movement.
