retire wahoo

chief-wahooIs it possible? The Cleveland Indians currently, as in now, as in 2014, have a logo that belongs in the history books under the heading “Americans Sure Used to be Racist, Right?” Turns out Americans are currently racist, as well. This horrendous smiling insult is emblazoned on the uniforms of the Cleveland Indians, a Major League Baseball team. As though white people have not done enough to Native Americans (née Indians), they continue to use these awful images as mascots for their sports teams.

Partner blogger Stabbone and McGraw has made numerous pleas over the years to eliminate this terrible stereotype which mars his favorite baseball team, but the public has turned a deaf ear. I thought I could pitch in with an idea, just to get the gears turning. To satisfy those fans accustomed to Chief Wahoo’s trademarked grin, but to eliminate the racist overtones, I have turned the Cleveland Indians into the Cleveland Lizards. Presto! Ernesto as major league mascot:
ernesto-over-wahooAs part of the deal, if Cleveland’s management agrees to my changes, I will lend them Ernesto’s likeness for the lifetime of the ball club. All I request in return is a small fee to be paid to the Shawnee Tribe, formerly of Ohio but now residing in Oklahoma. Much like the story of the University of Oregon’s Duck, this is a deal that could outlive its creators.


end racism

You know who hated Nazis? Jack Kirby. He fought real Nazis in World War II, then he went on to draw some of the best comics the world has ever known. Kirby created Captain America so he could draw him punching Hitler in the face.

Jack Kirby would absolutely detest our current president. Trump’s blatant, unrepentant anti-Semitism and racism have no place in this country. Trump is unfit to lead a pack of stray dogs, let alone the nation. He needs to be removed from office immediately.
