From Joe Posnanski's Blog:
The Logo in Question
I am not a baseball man, but this issue extends across all sports, so I thought I'd address it.
This dude wants to get rid of Chief Wahoo, and makes the case that he looks strikingly similar to Jewish Cariacatures from a Holocost Museum. This is the strongest case I've seen yet for changing the logo.
Ask me a few months ago, and I'd be completely against changing any logos for the sake of not offending minorities. I mean, why don't I, as a white man, take offense to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish logo? Why should we remove it just because of people emotions? Why don't we remove the Grizzlies logo, because I don't like how it portrays Grizzly Bears?
But, ask me now, and I'm a bit more towards the other side. I realise that these things are a part of a sick, twisted history. It's like putting a confederate flag up. But, is it really worth ruining all of this tradition?
You know what? I'm not the expert on this stuff. I really shold've left this post to OkLuschen....I'll ask him to add on to the end later.
In any case, check out the article.
