Re: “The Curse of Chief Wahoo

It all boils down to this folks: In all honesty, would it be acceptable for Cleveland's Major League Baseball franchise to adopt a "Sambo" caricature as part of its logo package and rebrand itself as the "Cleveland Negroes"? Would it be appropriate for said team to adopt a caricature of a buck-toothed, slant-eyed, queue-wearing Asian character as its logo and rebrand itself as the "Cleveland Chinks"? Would it be appropriate for the team's logo to be a caricature of a hook-nosed, fedora or shtreimel-wearing, payot-sporting rebbe, accompanied by the name "Cleveland Hebes" or "Cleveland Jews"?

So, if said team identities would be out of line, why is it that using "Chief Wahoo" to symbolize the "Cleveland Indians" is considered okay?
