This iReport is part of an assignment:
Washington Redskins, should the name be changed?
There is a similar controversy brewing concerning the Chief Wahoo logo at the Cleveland Indians baseball franchise.
Chief Wahoo is a logo of the Cleveland Indians, a Major League Baseball team. The logo is a cartoon caricature of a Native American face. It has drawn criticism from some sportswriters, religious groups, and Native Americans, but remains popular among fans of the Cleveland Indians. The team considered replacing the logo in 1993, but it was ultimately retained. Although Chief Wahoo is most properly described as a logo, he is sometimes called a mascot.
As the debate rages on I thought it would be interesting to get reaction on these types of controversies here at iReports.
Right or wrong, the question is, has Political Correctness gone too far or not far enough?
