Cleveland Indians fan in red face meets Native American protester

If you could wrap the Native American mascot debate in a photo, it would look something like this. A group from the American Indian Education Center attended Cleveland's home opener to protest the ongoing use of Chief Wahoo as the Indians' mascot -- particularly the red-faced cartoon image most closely associated with the team.

The team, for its part, has moved away from that image -- one many accuse of being blatantly racist toward Native Americans -- using instead the 'C' logo on team hats for instance.

Many fans clearly still believe Chief Wahoo should remain the mascot, even if means dressing up in red face -- usually seen as patently offensive on its own.
