Hmmm..... Atlanta Braves, will yall be next?
NO WACK-ASS nicknames either....and no gadam bird-names!
Please and Thanks.
how is atlanta's mascot name or logo depiction "racist"? why should they have to change their name? is it racist to depict native indians as being "brave"?
You miss the point of making Native Americans being made a mascot. I guess in the twisted minds of white folk this is honoring them.
well, if they're calling them "braves", then indeed that is an honor. don't we call our military personnel and police officers "brave"?
heck, "americans" are mascots too. you have the "nationals", the "yankees", the "pirates", the "cowboys", the "patriots", the "vikings", and i could go on and on.
unlike the name "redskins", if the name itself is not racist and the mascot is not racist, then what's the problem? i mean, what if the patriots "logo" was depicted as a "slave master" with a whip? no one would be saying that the "name" is racist, only the "logo" would be criticized as racist...
