The racial revolution that America has faced over the course of the last several months has been a transformative experience for many a citizen, and many a corporation as well.
The buying power of America’s youth is growing and, as such, companies around the world are beginning to adjust their output based on the purchasing trends of this woke generation. In an effort to stay ahead of the curve, the Cleveland Indians have decided that a name change is in order, perhaps as early as 2022.
President Trump is not a fan, apparently.
Trump’s tweet came hours after The New York Times reported the Indians’ name change was expected to come within the next week.
“Oh no! What is going on? This is not good news, even for “Indians”. Cancel culture at work!” the president tweeted.
This wasn’t always in the works, however.
Previously, Indians owner Paul Dolan said he and MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred preferred to keep the Indians name, Cleveland.com reported.
“While the focus of the baseball world shifts to the excitement of an unprecedented 2020 season, we recognize our unique place in the community and are committed to listening, learning, and acting in the manner that can best unite and inspire our city and all those who support our team,” the team said.
This leaves the Atlanta Braves as the sole MLB team with a Native American moniker, and there is no doubt that Cleveland’s decision has brought a heavy conversation to the team’s front office.
