Augustine states that the use of these religious symbols or spiritual leaders as sports logos is offensive. Also, this leads to children to be victims of racism.

Let us take a closer look at the Major League Baseball team, The Atlanta Braves. Over the years the team has changed their logo, but one thing has remained constant, the overall concept of the mascot. Today’s logo is displayed with the word Braves with a tomahawk directly below. During games, Braves fans band together to perform what is known as the tomahawk chop, where they cat as if their arms are tomahawks chopping through the air all the while chanting as if they were Indians. This is one of the many ways that the Native American is imitated in a negative may as if being mad a mockery of. Another example of how the American Indian is mocked is how not only are they the only culture to be portrayed as a mascot, but they are also one of the only cultures to be portrayed as a logo on tobacco an alcohol. The chewing tobacco, Red Man, as well as the alcohol brand, Firewater, use the image of the Native American as well as use the slang given to degrade the culture. Each of these franchises have furthered what the early films have begun and not only degraded the culture but made it to where the culture is a non-existent myth that is hidden away on reservations.

Dating back several hundreds of years ago, Native Americans have been deprived, dehumanized, and demoralized ever since Christopher Columbus and his men came and seized the land from the Indigenous Peoples. There have been many tactics that have been used to strip the dignity of the Indigenous Peoples, but the use of an American Indian sports mascot is one tactic that has been in effect since 1932. There are some supporters of these various American Indian sports mascots such as Dan Snyder, the current team owner of the Washington Redskins, that do not feel that these sports mascots have any negative connotations. Dan Snyder may have had a few points when he wrote his letter, but he fails to realize that the American Indian Sports Mascots are

The essay “Common Themes and Questions about the Use of ‘Indian’ Logos” by Barbara Munson answers this question as well as many others which one might have. The article states that “‘Indian’ logos and nicknames create, support, and maintain stereotypes of a race of people. When such cultural abuse is supported by one or many of society's institutions, it constitutes institutional racism” (Munson 624). The depiction of Native Americans as brutes is stereotypical and untrue. While the school of organization may not be directly attempting to create these stereotypes, they are created, and they harm the Native American community. The term “Indian” is also incorrect and offencive as it was created in the belief that Native Americans were from India, which they are not. That is not the name they call themselves. As stated by Munson, a Native American, “We are known by the names of our nations” (Munson 625). Since they do not call themselves “Indians”, neither should others. It is disrespectful to use any name to refer to someone than what they wish to be called, especially when that name is tied to disrespectful representations of their culture. One should not misrepresent or degrade a group of people even if he believes that it causes no real

In the 6th paragraph she says “...the likes of former KKK Grand Dragon David Duke walked the streets of Charlottesville with other white men, talking about “taking their country back”.” This quote can infer that this is a bad thing, and it’s not right. Later on in her article she says “It’s time to do our work. It starts just like an AA program: The first step is admitting we have a problem. I feel that her use of logos was important because she uses the term KKK referring back to when they were racist along time ago, and how bad they were to other races. It supports her argument because she wants to show what's happening and what's wrong with

Currently, many professional programs are being urged to change their name due to controversy over offensive mascots and/or names. A few teams being targeted include the following: the Atlanta Braves, Cleveland Indians, and the Washington Redskins.

There are many strategies that graphic designers and marketing directors use to create a logo for a company in order to form a brand. One logo strategy is to create an image that is familiar to individuals even if it’s an image that has never been seen before. Subjective familiarity is the “perception or feeling of familiarity, whether or not it is based on previous exposure” (Henderson and Cote 17). A critical finding in logo strategy is that cultures are homogenous in their response to design. “Gestalt psychology suggests that “good design is determined by culturally held beliefs” (Henderson and Cote 18). It may be difficult for an individual from an outside culture to understand a specific design. In one culture, the meaning of a sign can be completely opposite of the culture in which it is used, i.e. the use of the thumbs up signal.
