Judge asks how ALCS will be played if Indians logo banned
An Ontario judge hearing arguments on an attempt to bar the Cleveland Indians from using their team name and “Chief Wahoo” logo during Monday’s night playoff game in Toronto asked the plaintiff’s lawyer how the game would be played if the name and logo didn’t appear.
The legal challenge by indigenous activist Douglas Cardinal comes on the same day the team plays the Toronto Blue Jays in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series.
Swinwood said the legal challenge is a high-profile opportunity to bring awareness to the racism aboriginal people face in North America.
I’m sure the money, fame, payoffs and notoriety that would become Cardinal and Swinwood have nothing to do with it.
Those who can, do, those who can’t, become ethnic activists.
I bet that as I write these words, someone at The Undefeated is pounding out five to ten thousand words linking this back to Jackie Robinson and slavery.
