Thurs. 04/30 11a: This year marks the 100th year that the Cleveland baseball team has used the “Indians” name. The Cleveland Indians mascot, Chief Wahoo, has often been criticized because of its cartoon-like caricature of a Native American. With all of the attention on the Washington DC Football Team’s trademarks, where does the Cleveland Indians fit in the mascot fight? Are you offended by Chief Wahoo? Do you think it’s time to retire the mascot? Or do you feel that the mascot is not offensive to Native Americans?
