    Is This Logo Racist?



    A junior hockey team in Pennsylvania has announced that it will be rebranding itself after its logo caused widespread outrage.

    The team was originally called the Lake Erie Warriors and used a logo featuring a caricature of a Native American. The league announced Friday that the team will be changing its name to the Gulls.

    The logo was unveiled in May, according to The Hockey News, but was exposed to a wider audience this week by Paul Lukas of the sports design blog Uni Watch.

    People complain about EVERYTHING now! Should I start a news story that I'm offended by UMass Minutemen logo since I'm white?

    No I don't have a problem with it,to be honest,just like I don't have a problem with the Fighting Irish,Demon Deacons,Minnesota Vikings,or Duquesne Dukes all which have white caricatures.

    People are too uptight, too sensitive.
    It's a symbol for the love of God, a sports symbol, it's not an intentional racial pejorative.

    What was the percentage of Native Americans that were offended by the Redskins? Like 5 percent.

    God, when I was a kid I Norman Lear wrote and produced All in the Family where Archie Bunker would equally call every race and ethic group a slur and nobody gave a shit but laughed, now people get their panties in a wad and kill.

    for something to be racist, it must attempt to show that they believe a particular race is superior to another.

    T-wizzle jnr here believes subtle racism cannot exist and that trying to place yourself into the mindset of a cultural minority would make him feel disenfranchised. Something that terrifies him...

    If the name of the team is Warriors why don't they make the mascot look like Ninjas or Macedonians or some other tribe that don't give a shit and don't get offended?

    Racism definition is very clearly defined and unlike you, I understand the English language. Minorities can be racist also. The logo has nothing to do with racism. Smart people will understand.

    Rascist means hatred or bigotry based in the color of skin. If anything it's a tribute.

    Nowadays if it is perceived to be racist, it is racist. And also, nowadays, it is impossible to be racist to white people.

    Reminds me of when the NCAA told Florida State to change their mascot & logo and the Seminole Tribe basically told the NCAA to fukk off

    True story: They chose the Seminole mascot over Indians & crackers
