With all the furor associated with professional and college sports teams and their use of Native American nicknames (e.g., Seminoles, Fighting Sioux), I’m sure you can all undertand that associating one organization with the culture of another is just not right (I’m being very serious).
Given this, why do we as a profession continue to accept the use of “headhunter” especially when the Asmat tribe of New Guniea has been know to take offense to others using their moniker?
I believe an immediate cessation of the term “headhunter” is called for – perhaps this will also assist in the move towards more ethical recruiting and enable Sullivan, Adler, et. al. to have a reasonably clear Inbox at least once in their lives.
Same goes for the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame…
