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.
