“[Adidas] said Thursday it will provide free design resources to schools looking to shelve Native American mascots, nicknames, imagery or symbolism.”
There’s an old Korean saying that my mother is fond of repeating: “You have nothing to fear from someone who threatens that he is going to kill you tomorrow.” In other words, if the speaker’s true intention were to kill you, he would have done it already. He would not have told you he was going to do it, unless he’s socially maladjusted or a natural over-sharer. There would be no reference to “tomorrow.” He’s not going to kill you tomorrow; he is not going to kill you at all. The mere fact that he said such a thing makes him an unreliable narrator.
