Should Indian Mascots Be Banned? by Robbie

Should Indian mascots be banned? This question is very controversial.

In my opinion, some mascots are very offensive such as the Washington Redskins mascot or the Cleveland Indian mascots, but I do not think that all mascots should be banned. For example, I do not think that the Chicago Blackhawks should be banned because they are ACTUALLY honoring a group of Native Americans, and they are not stereotyping.

I also do not think that the Atlanta Braves should be banned because there is nothing offensive either with their mascot. Many people think of the word “redskin” as a curse word, such as the n-word, which shows how terrible the Washington Redskins’ mascot is. Also, if you look at the Cleveland Indians, the mascot has a bright red face, and is named Chief Wahoo. This means idiot. I hope many people can take into consideration my viewpoint.
