I suppose I should clear one thing up before we get started. When I speak of the Chief Wahoo protestor versus the Chief Wahoo supporter matchup, the following is not what I am referring to....
You'd have to an absolute asshole with no social awareness whatsoever to side with the type of buffoon who would not only dress up in red face, but try to explain why it's okay that he's mocking an entire nationality to the face of a member of that nationality. It's insane that in 2017 Chief Wahoo is only being incrementally phased out when it's clearly offensive to a proud group of people whose feeling on it are the only ones that truly matter. Unfortunately, that doesn't make me hate the people singing jingles about racism on their behalf any less...
You see, I have little to no doubt that at least half the people protesting in that video are just as passionate about their cause of finding literally anything to bitch about as the people that are slinging racially insensitive stupidity right into a camera lens. I'm not saying that the home opener following a season in which the Cleveland Indians were merely a bounce away from winning the World Series is too inconvenient of a time for people to voice their concerns. However, couldn't a proverbial mirror be held in the face of prejudice on literally any other day? There's no excuse for the stereotypical idiot screaming "get a job!" when he's too dumb to realize that he's not currently at his either. I just wonder how you could expect any other reaction when you're implying that a bunch of trumped up baseball fans are racists by association before they even got a single sniff of the infield grass on an afternoon they had been looking forward to since mid-October. The insults, stereotypes, and illogical comparisons captured were inexcusable, but so is stirring shit and acting surprised when you end up with a goddamn mess on your hands.
