LIVE WELL WITHIN OUR MEANS
Its a long period of white ignorance and stupidity, what we created for ourselves and how much we harm others (nations) and for what, so we can create a world of uncertainty and corruption, and fascism - corporations ruling us all, our white world we can't trust our own family, friends, neighbors, leaders, families and communities disintegrating, what makes life worth living slips away while Canadian people look the wrong way at their bank account.
CHANGE THE WAY WE LIVE and live well within our means, our means is - The Earth.

Thanks for adding your voice.

It's unbelievable that it takes this much effort for someone to change the racist name of a freaking bike race. People will ride no matter what it's called, so just change the name already.

I respect the adventure racer who brought this to my attention. I agree that they shouldn’t use that name for the reasons stated in the petition.

You have a million Wizard of Oz puns to play off of for a sweet dirt bicycle race in Kansas! How much more hubbub do you need to change your mind about the name being insulting ? From a PR standpoint alone it will only hurt the popularity of your race as it grows. C'mon, be a grown up and apologize!

I raced the “DK” some years past. I thought the name merely referred to the dirt, dust, and gravel encountered while riding in the state of Kansas. Now that I’ve been made aware of the racist derivation of “DK,” I could never attend this event until a more appropriate re-naming is made!!!

Native people of this land deserve respect and deserve to be heard -- this is the bare minimum!
