    Cleveland Indian team logo gone.. Deemed racist..

    Say goodbye to the smiling Indian logo.. MLB nixed it..

    What a joke, seems like everything these days that has some history behind it is considered racist.. I see nothing racist about it..Unbelievable.. People are too damn sensitive and easily offended these days.. I don't like it!!!

    One last look..

    That just pisses me off! I heard it on the local Cleveland radio station today. A few FAKE Indian protesters at the games and the team management folds! I will be wearing ALL my Chief Wahoo gear to every game I go to and if that pisses someone off well too bad!! Next they will bw wanting to change the team name to the Cleveland block C's.

    Cleveland is a shiiit hole. One big ghetto pretty much.. Almost as bad as Detroit... Couldn't pay me to live in Cleveland, Ohio...

    Fans are still loyal though and they don't deserve a change in logo.. They even made movies with the smiling Indian logo...

    This is small picture type thinking and couldn't be further from the truth, especially when decisions like this are making there way to the court system.

    It's not about the logo or the team or Native Americans.

    Nothing wrong with the Blackhawks,they had permission to use the Blackhawks logo and name.Look back into the history of the team.

    How can the logo be racist? Is it an issue with the mascot? Is the mascot considered a lowly form of life?

    It's just as much an honor to be chosen as a mascot as it would be demeaning and even then it's not automatically racist..

    Regardless, it seems like bit of manufactured racism, and the public just buys right into it. This is because most don't know what the word racist means or what racism even is.

    No racism here, move on everyone.

    Like I said in the other thread, if it were up to Liberals, our future generations would have no idea what an Indian was because their goal is to erase their history from existence.

    Seriously let's take a closer look - would any white person be offended by this below if it was a pro team logo that has been around for decades? I know I wouldn't..
