    A hot fashion item this summer on Ontario First Nations’ reserves is a T-shirt with the lettering “Caucasians” and the grinning logo of Chief Wahoo, the much-derided mascot of the Cleveland Indians major league baseball team.

    Tracy Bomberry said she had plenty of favourable comments when wearing her Caucasians shirt to a pow wow in her community of Six Nations of the Grand River near Brantford last weekend.

    “People’s reaction has been all positive and they see the humour in it both on and off the reserve,” Bomberry said in an interview.

    She said she bought her T-shirt to make a humorous statement after reading that Ojibwa singer DJ NDN of A Tribe Called Red was accused of racism for wearing one last month.

    “I thought how hypocritical that he would be accused of racism for wearing a shirt that turns the tables in a satirical way of how our image as native people has been misappropriated by the Cleveland Indians, Washington Redskins and the like,” Bomberry said.

    She noted there’s an online movement that includes use of the Twitter hashtag#NotYourMascot to change what she called degrading and derogatory team names and logos.

    I want one. There was an intermural Basketball team at the University of Northern Colorado made up of Indians. they called themselves The Fighting Whites. They sold tee shirts. They sold a lot of them.

    This one has been around for awhile. I've never heard anyone complain. Maybe because we take it as an honor to be looked upon as a symbol of strength.

    That doesn't make sense. I fucking hate this Caucasian crap that says White people originated in the Caucasus mountains.
    It is as scientifically invalid as saying Satan planted the dinosaur bones to test people's faith.

    I'm only 45 minutes from that reserve. Those natives are all fat, disgusting pigs that live in tarpaper shacks.

    Couple years ago the wahoos took over a subdivision on the edge of Caledonia. I was arrested for standing up to riot police at the protest and spent the night in jail.

    I live 15 miles from seminole land (near the Hollywood, FL Hard Rock). I used to work on 441 and on Fridays I would stop by the newly built Hard Rock and have lunch, go in the pool, etc.

    It was a really depressing scene. The seminoles that hung out there would be all drugged up and strung out ordering drink after drink. The cocktail waitresses and bartenders kiss their ass because they all overtip. its probably the only place they can get attention from a woman, so they stay in a drug and alcohol induced haze and give all their money to the bartenders. I felt sorry for them.

    It reminded me of a strip club as these young women have no shame and will flirt/hang all over with these old disgusting indians just to get a good tip. Good luck getting service at the Hard Rock if you are white and a Seminole shows up. you will be ignored.
