 :lol:^^^y, stop it!!

Everytime something comes up involving the Cleveland baseball team, I think of my late father-in-law. Dude went on to Glory over 20 years ago, but he would be holed up in his blackened bedroom, near downtown Cleveland, listening to radio broadcasts of Indian games when they had to be one of the lousiest teams in all of MLB.

For those of you who are baseball fans, I’m talking about a time before the new baseball stadium opened in downtown Cleveland.

Chief Noc-A-Homa wouldn’t be allowed today. Dude had a teepee too!

Been to many a games at old Fulton County Stadium back in the day….

Not sure when he was removed but it was before they got really good in the late 80’s/early 90’s

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...

Some Native Americans agree with you, many don’t.  In all your ‘positive’ examples, those people were lauded as heroes while they lived?  not so during the early years of whites stealing and killing the Natives.

Chief Noc A  Homa’s teepee was removed in the late 80’’s, just before they went on that run where they won 14 straight division titles, and the 1995 World Series!!  They started selling out every evening, and the teepee took out 400-500 seats.  The teepee was costing too much seat revenue over the course of the season. It’s disposal really had nothing to do with political correctness, even though they spin it that way in today’s p.c. society.

Brave is an adjective but it is also a noun which means Native American warrior

noun
a brave person.
a warrior, especially among North American Indian tribes.
