Man Uses Shirt To Call Out Racist Logos—And The Responses Are Hypocritical AF

@FredTJoseph/Twitter

Fredrick Joseph, who came to the media spotlight when he created the #BlackPantherChallenge, is taking on a new challenge: the use of racially insensitive images in sports logos. More specifically, Joseph is taking on the Washington's Redskins mascot.


In an attempt to show the hypocrisy of using a race of people as a mascot, Joseph put on a shirt with a cartoon of a white man and the word Caucasian underneath, then walked the streets of New York looking for a reaction. He got one all right. Joseph then took to Twitter to share the ridiculously over-the-top reactions

.





Usually it's the south that gets called out for racism, but from the sounds of things, Manhattan is a breeding ground for white supremacists.


The openly hostile hatred Joseph experienced simply walking around in a tee-shirt is outlandish.

To make matters even more insulting, many Twitter users didn't believe his story.







But others understood the profound effects of naming a team after a race of people.




Unfortunately, Dan Snyder, owner of the Redskins, has made it clear he has no intentions of changing the name of the team. According to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell:

Dan Snyder has really worked in the Native American community to understand better their perspective, and I think it's reflected mostly in a Washington Post poll that came out in [May 2016] that said over nine out of 10 Native Americans do not take that in a negative fashion, the Redskins' logo or the Redskins' name, and they support it


We think this debate may rage on for a while.
