Re: “Did Major League Baseball Force Chief Wahoo's Demotion?

while the chief wahoo caricature could be seen as offensive to some, the nickname "indians" is not, at all. political correctness is ridiculous anyway

Re: “Did Major League Baseball Force Chief Wahoo's Demotion?

Representatives from the Oneida Indian Nation were slated to meet with the United Nations’ Human Rights Office regarding the Washington Redskins nickname. Though the U.N. has no power in this arena, the possibility of a growing international spotlight in the sporting world may find nervous pro team owners more receptive to change...instead of waiting for one of their brethren to pave the way by voluntarily creating a new nickname and logo.

Political correctness is going crazy. I can't be openly racist and mock an entire group of people anymore, so obviously this country is doomed.

Re: “Did Major League Baseball Force Chief Wahoo's Demotion?

I can't wait for the Wahoo logo and the team name to be retired. Once these two things happen, the roadblocks that have kept Native Americans second class citizens will once and for all be taken down. It will be the beginning of a "renaissance" period for Native Americans! We all know that the symbolism of changing the names and logo of sports teams is the most meaningful action we can participate in to make a major difference in the lives of those people whom these atrocities supposedly represent.

Re: “Did Major League Baseball Force Chief Wahoo's Demotion?

I still don't understand why this is news. Although I don't agree with it, the Chief has been the secondary logo for at least a year or two. If you watch highlight shows, they show the "C" instead of the Chief.

Re: “Did Major League Baseball Force Chief Wahoo's Demotion?

So why don't they change the Tomahawk the braves logo or the sphere FSU logo. those are both Native American related. I am Native American and do NOT find any of these offensive.

Re: “Did Major League Baseball Force Chief Wahoo's Demotion?

Well I would think that the 'people' protesting all around the world for over 20 years might have had some influence on management of Major League Baseball to force the racists Chief Wahoo logo to be phased out. After all it is a 'black' mark (sorry for the pun) against not only them but to all professional baseball teams.

American Cultural Ambassador David Jakupca and I, of the International Center for Environmental Arts are proud to be a Major Activists and Players in Chief Wahoo's removal to the Western Reserve Historical Society.

Chief Wahoo - People Not Mascots' Logo
Artist : David Jakupca
The 'People Not Mascots' Logo is meant to be a Native American protest caricature of the Cleveland Indians Baseball team. It was originally painted by David Jakupca at the historic ARK in Berea incorporating elements of the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts, it has drawn criticism from some sportswriters, fans and local businessmen, but gained immediate acceptance among humanitarian, religious groups and Native Americans. It gained international popular attention when it was it exhibited by ICEA at the 1993 UN World Conference on Human Rights held in Vienna, Austria and has become one of the most recognized anti-racists logo's in existence. It also caused repercussions for the groups connected with using the logo in protest demonstrations and this has been documented in the Internecine Matrix.

Re: “Did Major League Baseball Force Chief Wahoo's Demotion?

And so begins a process that will eventually dissolve Chief Wahoo and the nickname 'Indians'. I just hope when that happens we can change the name of the Browns too.

Re: “87.7 FM Brings Latino Radio To Cleveland

I'm glad that a station like this exists since it broadens the music being broadcast on Cleveland's airwaves. I just wish it didn't come at the cost of "Cleveland's Sound".

Re: “87.7 FM Brings Latino Radio To Cleveland

In this fragmented radio market, there is untapped potential for this format. But having a promotion's staff pounding the pavement should be part of any grassroots plan......get people toting that logo around the city.

Re: “East Cleveland Library Mired in Political Pit After Abrupt Leadership Shuffle

Over the years, East Cleveland has proven to be a toxic waste pit for those who believe that public service actually means serving the public. It is a case study in the sordid end-game called "The Triumph of Politics".

Re: “Did Major League Baseball Force Chief Wahoo's Demotion?

Local sports-talk radio - minus Tony Grossi - is as heavy a dose of ridiculous gossip built on shaky sources as anything found in other sports media sources in the area. But, it appears the Dolan family is positioning the franchise for a new nickname, while retaining the primary uniform colors. Dan Snyder - and the fall of the Redskins name - may the key for the dominoes to fall in MLB.

Instead of Sundance, why not premiere it at CIFF 2015?

WVIZ should have some interest in airing the flick -- you can't get more local than the "sax man".

Re: “The Curse of Chief Wahoo

It is Karma that is the bottom of the Curse of Chief Wahoo,
because the Chief Wahoo Logo attracts bad Karma like a lighting rod.

You see at the beginning of every baseball season,
all fans and players all across the nation hope and pray that their team has a winning tyear.

Towards the end of the regular season some teams hopes and prayers are answered and they advance to the play offs.

If the Cleveland baseball team is lucky and makes the play offs,
most fans and players from other teams from all across the nation who did not make the play offs wish the Cleveland team would lose. Some people living on reservations, who don't know where Cleveland is or have never been to a baseball game in their lives also hope Cleveland will lose. Karma responds and Cleveland loses. This collective National Negative Karma is why Cleveland can't advance in any play offs - This is the 'Curse of Chief Wahoo'.

Why are the other Cleveland pro teams losing? It could be that bad Karma is rubbing off on them, that or just plain bad management.
