#NotYourMasterVillainKemosabe. Given that these concepts were introduced less than twenty years apart, we certainly made some progress culturally. However, Black Bison is still offensive, he still gets used by DC Comics in an insensitive manner, and as a whole we've probably regressed in our representation of Native Americans since peak awareness in the '70s. Black Bison was dead for a while there, and if he could be buried in the same hidden location as the Witch Doctor's Tomahawk, we'd probably all be better off. Bison wins this, but we all lose for the match happening in the first place.
