While the Washington Redskins are reviewing their names and metaphors in detail as a possible representation of a name change, the Cleveland Indians of Major League Baseball have decided to do the same.
Indians tweeted the statement to their followers:
“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and take our responsibility to advance social justice and equality. Our organization fully recognizes that the name of our team is the most visible way we connect with the community.
“We have had ongoing discussions on these issues organizationally. The recent turmoil in our community and in our country only focused on the need to continue our progress as an organization on issues of social justice.
“With this in mind, we are committed to employing our community and appropriate stakeholders to determine the best way forward in the context of our team name.
“While the focus of the baseball world has shifted to the excitement of the unprecedented 2020 season, we recognize our unique place in the community and are committed to listening, learning and acting in a way that brings our city and those together to the best of their ability and inspiration. Support our team. “
