Chief Wahoo needs to go, sociologists tell Major League Baseball commissioner
Chief Wahoo reflects and reinforces societal stereotypes about Native Americans, and the Cleveland Indians need to abandon the controversial logo, the American Sociological Association says. CLEVELAND, Ohio - The American Sociological Association is calling for an end to Chief Wahoo, the controversial Native American caricature that serves as the Cleveland Indians logo.  The association sent a letter Tuesday to Major League Baseball Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. to urge him to have the Cleveland Indians abandon their use of Chief Wahoo. Manfred tole ESPN's Mike & Mike sports show in October that he plans to meet with the Indians after the season to discuss Chief Wahoo. Baseball commissioner plans to meet with Indians owner about Chief Wahoo The Indians' World Series run brought national attention to the logo. "Sharing baseball's brightest spotlight with [the Cleveland Indians] will be what many people consider to be the most offensive image in sports: Chief Wahoo," The Washington Post wrote in an article on the World Series. The team's front office has rarely addressed the issue. The team says it's more concerned about the logo's relationship with fans than with the logo's relationship to American history. The team has said it reduced the prominence of the Chief Wahoo by giving more prominence on uniforms to the block "C," its primary logo. The sociological association urged Manfred to use his power to rid major league baseball of all Native American team nicknames, logos and other symbols. "Sociologists and scholars from allied social and behavioral science fields (e.g. anthropology and psychology) have conducted research on the topic of Native American sports nicknames and logos," wrote association president Michelle Lamont. The findings from these studies are clear: these nicknames and logos involve stereotypes that harm Native Americans." See the letter below or click here if on a mobile device. The association said other academic organizations and civil rights organizations have passed resolutions objecting to the nicknames and logos. // DV.load("https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3222200-Asa-Letter-to-Commissioner-Manfred.js", { width: 600, height: 800, sidebar: false, container: "#DV-viewer-3222200-Asa-Letter-to-Commissioner-Manfred" }); // ]]>

Lorain's 'Borinqueneers,' Puerto Rican segregated Army unit, honored with Congressional medal (photos, video)
Lorain's "Borinqueneers," Puerto Rican men who fought in a segregated Army unit, honored with Congressional Gold Medal. Watch video LORAIN, Ohio -- The Borinqueneers, Puerto Rican soldiers, were the last segregated unit of the United States military, a band of patriotic fighting men who faced down enemies and, closer to home, prejudice. This year, decades after the unit was disbanded, they received recognition as Congress bestowed on them its highest civilian award, the Congressional Gold Medal. Congress passed legislation to award the honor in April, a rare act of bipartisanship that quickly drew President Obama's signature. Yesterday in Lorain, three men from that famous 65th Army Infantry Regiment proudly accepted their replica medals in a ceremony attended by their friends, family, fellow veterans and politicians including U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, who sponsored the legislation to honor them. The actual gold medal is held by the Smithsonian, which loaned it for the Lorain ceremony. "I feel really great. Really, really great," said 96-year-old Julio Santiago, who proved it by popping out from behind a lectern and doing calisthenics in front of the crowd of dignitaries, first a series of swift squats, then touching right hand to left toe, left hand to right toe. He was not the least bit winded. Fellow Borinqueneer Miguel Berlingeri, who recovered from a stroke several years back and complained after the ceremony when his family members wanted him to go home and take his medicine while he preferred to be "among his people," sat on a folding chair shaking hands and talking about his service and the sacrifice of fellow soldiers. Berlingeri saw combat in one of the most famous battles involving the 65th, where, in 1951 in Korea, they helped to free Marines outnumbered and surrounded by Chinese in the frozen ridge tops at the Chosin Reservoir. "They fought hard. They freed the Marines. I was there. I was there," Berlingeri said. "I was fighting at the Chinese where they were coming, the Chinese were coming trying to jump over our wires, the Chinese were coming, and believe me I saw one of them laying down on the wire while the other ones jumped over him and we were shooting." Many of his fellow soldiers died in that battle, he said. The Borinqueneers were formed in 1898 after Puerto Rico became a U.S. Territory. The name comes from the indigenous Taino name of the island, Broinquen. The unit's soldiers fought in World War I, World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam. They  earned numerous awards, including one Medal of Honor, nine Distinguished Service Crosses, approximately 250 silver stars and more than 2,700 Purple Hearts. And now the Congressional Gold Medal. In all, about 100,000 men served in the 65th. It is estimated that less than 1,000 Borinqueneers are alive today. Berlingeri said he was proud to be a Puerto Rican, an American soldier, and, "a Lorainiac!" Lorain has one of the largest concentrations of Puerto Ricans in the country, and more than any city west of the Appalachian Mountains, said Kaptur. In addition to Berlingeri and Santiago, two other members of the 65th were honored Monday: Carlos Montes and Francisco Colon, who was too ill to attend. "They were Korean war heroes," said Antonio Barrious, president of the Lorain Arts Council, which organized yesterday's medal ceremony at the Lorain Historical Society. "The Borinqueneers showed honor and fidelity to the United States Army." Kaptur said the Borinquineers join units such as the Tuskegee Airmen, U.S. Women Airforce Service Pilots; the Monuments Men, Native American Code Talkers in receiving the Congressional Gold Medal. She quoted General Douglas MaCarthur, saying, "I am indeed proud to have these men under my command. I wish that we could count on many more like them."
