Chief Wahoo is racist. These pictures show the 21st century version of black face, trivializing indigenous people, continuing ignorance and creating the seeds of contempt and hate. it is time for MLB to formally take the team owners to task, demand changes and stop teaching children and young people that identifying a race of people as worthy of caricature is fine in the name of profit. To the team players, you too are responsible since you profit from the team identity. Now that you are not in contention start petitioning for a change.
To the fans of Cleveland and the sport and team: it is time to retire these sdymbols, create a new identity and make it someting everyone in Cleveland and all throughout Amerrica can look on with pride and enjoyment.
