DO NOT BRING BACK ‘Screaming Savage’ on Braves’ caps for 2013

    1. Petition by

      Emelie Jeffries

      High Bridge, NJ

The "screaming savage" that served as part of the Atlanta's logo from 1967 to 1989 is as offensive and disrespectful to First Nations people as it was then. NOTHING has changed...so why bring back something that you had to stop using in the first place. Take the hint...The Gap, Victoria Secret, Hooters, No Doubt made the same mistake and the massive boycotts that followed was enough to cause them to take down their show of racial ignorance. So do yourselves a favor...don't even bother doing this...it was a bad idea then and its a bad idea now.

Atlanta Braves
DO NOT BRING BACK ‘Screaming Savage’ on Braves’ caps for 2013

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I didn't want to sign this damn thing I just wanted to say I approve of this logo I am native oglala and ponca. As Natives you shouldn't care how the media portrays us, you all sound like a bunch of whiny white people. Take pride in your tradition not what other people say I like the fact that we are atleast getting acknowledged from sports teams it gives me teams to like... moral of my rant QUIT F*CKING BITCHING!!! show Pride by your family not the media help your people because the government sure in the hell won't help. bitching about what the media thinks of you does nothing for your people.

      The word savage is as outdated as the "N" word. We are past the days of "kill the indian save the man" This is racist and demeaning to me and every native person.
