The Cleveland Guardians

Throughout America's history, we have seen in recent times the rise and domination of sports in America.  In many cases and leagues we have seen team names that use derogatory phrases or monikers from the deep roots of racism in America.

Recently we have seen the Washington Redskins, change their name to the Washington Football Team.  Being from Maryland, I am in market of Washington Sports.  Many people and fans of the Redskins/ Washington Football team were not happy with the change.  Even though is put a whole group and race of people down, fans did not want change, even if it meant being more socially conscious.

Today, we have seen yet another team and league, take the reigns and change their derogatory name.  The Cleveland Indians have announced today, that they are now changing their name, logo and moniker to the Cleveland Guardians.

Name definitely sounds a little off, being used to the Cleveland Indians, but I back Cleveland in their name change.  I hope this brings a new category of MLB fans to their market, and leaves behind those who do not see the benefit.

Unfortunately, we cannot say Go tribe anymore, but props to Cleeland on this change!
