All Native American Major League Team Identities Must Change

The Red****s issue in heating up and the same needs to happen for all Native Aerican team identities.

Here’s a definition of racism I’m guessing most don’t understand: Judging a group of people identified by race from a position of power. The “from a position of power” means only white people in America can be racist since overall it is white people in positions of power throughout America, in law, in society, in business and in politics.

When not white people judge white people negatively it is then called prejudice. Racism in this definition fits in the team discussions because the team owners of the Native American identified teams are wealthy, white and male–obviously each a position of power and when combined perhaps the most complete position of power in America today.

Cleveland fans–it is the 21st century, it is time to move away from both the MLB name and logo. Do the right thing finally. This is not some sort of PC issue, it is about real America, respect and decency for everyone and yes, rule of law. Once you know a fuller history of America turning people who were proud warriors, our ancestors’ allies often, our ancestors’ enemies occasionally and generally our neighbors today into cartdoon trivialities is just plain wrong.
