Bemidji Beat: Some further thoughts on Chief Bemidji
I'm white, Caucasian, whatever you want to call it. I'm a mix of Italian, Norwegian and German heritage (I think). So to say that I completely understand the issues surrounding the Chief Bemidji statue would be false. I don't. But I believe I could, probably fairly, lump it with other issues surrounding cultural insensitivities (i.e. my grandmother's Dago issue, ongoing sports team name debates, etc., etc.).
