    I laughed. The dollar on the head was a topper.

    When I was in university, a native artist made a team pennant with "Jews" on it. No logo, just the word.

    So it's OK to use a racist, offensive caricature, as long as you don't use the racist, offensive name?

    You've done a spectacular job of missing the whole point.

    Pretty sure I was being facetious. If ya get rid of the team name, the racist mascot would seemingly go with it.

    Anything to do with Cleveland is offensive.

    Thought you might have been but wasn't sure. You can never be sure about that kind of thing on this site.

    I'll try, but you'll struggle.

    Your point is "if someone else wore that with a different racial group, they'd be fired!" Which is a stupid fucking point, because the shirt is identical to the Indians script and logo and people defend it. You think he'd be fired if he wore an Indians jersey?

    Actually it's a completely valid point. Stupid is suggesting he'd be fired for wearing an Indians jersey.

    Jesus Christ. It's like talking to a dog.

    You're the clown, not me...
    Follow Jones on Twitter for half a day. A lot of his content is tinged with race-baiting.

    I follow him on Twitter. I listen to his show.

    The problem isn't Bomani "race baiting." The problem is with dumb people who flip their shit at any mention of race by a black guy, and don't come close to understanding his point.

    His shirt isn't remotely offensive. If you don't get the point of it, that's not his problem.
