Ohio state senator Eric Kearney introduced legislation Wednesday urging the Cleveland Indians to change the team’s name and mascot…
Kearney, a democrat from North Avondale, introduced the legislation while the Indians are playing a series against the Cincinnati Reds, who play near Kearney’s district.
In the resolution, Kearney urges the team to change the name and remove Chief Wahoo, the team’s mascot:
“A team named the Indians, or one that carries a mascot of a stereotypical Native American caricature, such as Chief Wahoo, is an affront to Native Americans and…An evolving sense of decency and respect demand that the Cleveland Indians change their nickname and mascot.”
The Ohio General Assembly is on summer break.
