It's time for Major League Baseball to acknowledge and HONOR the Native American Baseball Players who broke the color barrier 48 years BEFORE the great Jackie Robinson !
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 that it the removal of these mascots are beneficial to the American Indian community.
