Indians Fans Grow Up!

Sadly, the politically incorrectly have felt the need lately to go the extra mile to offend. The Cleveland fans are no exception and little different from the willfully ignorant in Washington or Atlanta. It costs individuals so little to change their offensiveness and though certainly it costs institutions financially more, it is simply the right thing to do. “Noblesse oblige” suggests that those in a society with more are expected to BE more. The example I have given to my students is that if it cost you NOTHING to make another person feel better would you do it? The Indians logo and some of their fans going out of their way to be offensive is cheap and antiquated and represents the worst of intolerance. Why would ANY human being of character choose to be gross over showing kindness and grace, especially when it costs them NOTHING.
