An article highlighting a controversial image released by the National Congress of American Indians has been circulating on Facebook this week.

The poster uses fabricated mascots to expose the inherent racism behind the Cleveland Indians name and logo.

Opponents of this article have attempted to derail the issue by raising the Fighting Irish as an acceptable example of racial iconography.

Journalist Joanna Schroeder released this article for “Good Men Project” website on October 5, 2013 and has generated 6,284 likes and almost 10,000 shares since that time.

What you’re doing is called derailing and it’s a way to use your white privilege to redirect, or derail, the point of a conversation about various -isms.
