We strongly encourage the leadership of Major League Baseball to recognize the demeaning nature of American Indian mascots as used by the Cleveland Indians and Atlanta Braves; to recognize that these images are stereotypes that portray American Indian people in a negative light; and recognize the removal of these mascots is beneficial to the American Indian community.
