Finding ‘negative racial’ meaning in the team name and logo says more about the critics themselves, their own experiences and exposure to racism than anything about the actual meaning and value that the team and it’s fans place on the name and logo. All the reasons that go into choosing and continuing to invest in a team name suggest reverence and appreciation, not racism.
