In 2002, cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz drew a political cartoon about sports teams and fans who use disrespectful Native American names, mascots, and imagery. Ann Boobus remembered the cartoon when she saw this picture.

The resemblance is uncanny and uncomfortable. Last Friday, this picture was taken outside Progressive Field before the Cleveland Indians home opener. Protesters from the American Indian Movement were outside the arena to urge the team to remove Chief Wahoo as its mascot, and were confronted by a Cleveland fan in full dress. Twelve years is a long time for such an issue to still be unresolved, but the controversy has been going much longer. -via Metafilter
