    They meant no harm with Chief Wahoo, but he is an embarrassment and has been used much less in recent years. However, here in Cleveland we are possessive about our team names. When some obscenely rich crybaby says he can't make any money and moves a perpetually sold-out team away, he can't have the name at least.

    Maybe it's me, but despite the apparent trend by some Native Americans to refer to themselves as "Skins," I find the term "Redskins" used by white people to be offensive and "Indians" not so, particularly when one considers the history of the teams of these two cities with regard to racial issues.

    The Indians (according to legend) were named in honor of a Native American who played for the team early in its history. Cleveland was also the first American League team to hire an African-American player, just a short time after Jackie Robinson was hired by the Dodgers. Paul Brown of the eponymous Cleveland Browns was not racist according to no less authority than Jim Brown. We have always had minority players. The Redskins, on the other hand, were the very last NFL team to integrate.

    But thanks to the Onion for including a Cleveland joke. How original, and how apt.

    Everyone needs to stop being so sensitive. It is a name it is not like after every Redskin win they go out and pillage the local indian casino. They're scalping more whites then the white are scalping them now a days. Only proud Indians I know in Oregon are the ones who get their Per-cap check every 3 months. They're also fairer skin then myself because they do have 1% blood quantum.
