The Cleveland Indians have announced that they’re abandoning their longtime mascot and logo, as Chief Wahoo will no longer appear on their uniforms.
This move has been a long time coming, with complaints about the MLB team using a racially insensitive name and image building in recent years.
I’m personally against a lot of the revisionist history stuff going on at the moment, such as tearing down statues of people now seen as problematic.
However, removing this racial caricature from a sports team’s logo and merchandise is the right thing to do. Now let’s just hope the Redskins follow suit.
