WFNY TV – Ding Dong Wahoo is Dead

PATRICK SEMANSKY/ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Cleveland Indians’ announcement that they would be retiring the Chief Wahoo logo was met with fierce opinions on both sides. People who grew up with the logo are upset with a piece of their childhood being removed and angry at the idea of something they find innocent being offensive. On the other side, the red skin and large nose are signs to some of clear racism or at least being insensitive to Native Americans. Jeff Nomina gives his opinion on the death of Chief Wahoo and why we shouldn’t be so upset to see him go.
