Yes, the Cleveland Indians logo and name is insensitive. I’m not sure how or why they have avoided the same backlash as the Washington Redskins.
Still when speaking of them don’t do what Pedro Martinez decided to do yesterday…….

Yeah that was a bad idea. Martinez was quick to apologize on Twitter afterwards
I send my apologies if I was misunderstood when I was trying to pay tribute to the Cleveland Indians on the TBS post season show. — Pedro Martinez (@45PedroMartinez) October 11, 2016
And offer a reason for it
I was referring to my pitching years facing Cleveland. Nothing else. Again, my apologies.

Jays fans, we’ve already had some problems with racial slurs so let’s make sure we don’t do this. Don’t be that guy.
