One- This study wasn't done in Cleveland, or by Clevelanders. Cleveland is special.
Two- You can't compare Washington Bullets to Chief Wahoo. They had a homicide problem, we don't have a Native American problem. If we were the Cleveland Foreclosed homes, maybe changing the name would be a good idea.
Three- Chief Wahoo is historic symbols of Cleveland. It's a symbol of great times and great memories. It wasn't designed to be offensive, or with any malice towards Native Americans. Any change in sentiment is a lack of understanding of history and the way people used to think.
