As if that dumbass-Indians-fan ordeal couldn't get any more surreal, it turns out one cartoonist depicted almost the exact situation in 2002.
Remember all that "IIIIIIIIIIII'm probably fucking up here" supposing we did yesterday? Yeah, about that: our redface dude had no problems with his behavior and was actually in the process of setting this Native American straight about his belief that Chief Wahoo is an offensive and racist caricature.
For all the shit we give wrong idiot Dan Snyder, there's really no question that Cleveland's Chief Wahoo is clearly and by far the most ridiculous mascot in sports. A bunch of fans have been "de-chiefing" their gear for a few years now. This guy went the other way.
The Indians are polling fans about Chief Wahoo: Amid a larger survey about the gameday experience sent to Indians fans, Cleveland is very curious how Chief Wahoo rates compared to the team's other logos. [Hardball Talk]
Here's three Cleveland fans painted to look like Chief Wahoo, and TBS kept cutting to them.
A federal appeals court just sank a coup de grace through a 17-year-old lawsuit claiming the Redskins logo is offensive. Naturally, the judges left unanswered the question of whether the logo is, in fact, offensive.
We don't want to sound like the PC police here, but seriously now: Is it really OK for Indians fans to be dressing up in red face? We're sure this is something they've been doing for a long time, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's OK.
