About a half-hour before the Super Bowl 57 kickoff came the theme music, straight out of an Old West movie from the 1940s. And as the Kansas City Chiefs bolted out of the tunnel and onto the field at State Farm Stadium, they were greeted by arguably the most racist gesture demonstrated on the American sporting landscape: The tomahawk chop.

It was just like the scene at a Chiefs home game at Arrowhead Stadium.

And sadly, it was just as wrong and insensitive.
