Published

Even Major League Baseball is not exempt from political correctness.

The Washington Post reported that the Cleveland Indians are in the process of changing their name after the Washington Redskins announced their decision to review a potential name change before the NFL’s 2020 season.

“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the Indians declared in a statement. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community. We have had ongoing discussions organizationally on these issues. The recent unrest in our community and our country has only underscored the need for us to keep improving as an organization on issues of social justice.”

According to a report from The Athletic, the Indians leadership is expecting to discuss the matter with Native American leaders, fans, players, alumni, and staff within the organization before making a final name change.

The Washington Post pointed out that “The club de-emphasized its “Chief Wahoo” logo in 2016 in favor of the red ‘Block C’ logo.”

“We do have empathy for those who take issue with it,” Indians owner Paul Dolan commented about the logo in 2016. “We have minimized the use of it, and we’ll continue to do what we think is appropriate.”

In the 2018 season, “Chief Wahoo” was eliminated and the team no longer uses the logo.

The degree of cultural radicalism America is going through in 2020 is off the charts.

The Left is moving at breakneck speed in its efforts to transform America in every possible way, while most of the Right stays asleep.

Research Shows that U.S. Hispanics Reject the Ridiculous Label of “Latinx”

Published

Pew Research Center’s Hispanic trends found that Hispanics are categorically rejecting the label of “Latinx.”

The question of pan-ethnic labels to describe people with origins from Latin America and Spain has been a subject of discussion for decades. Over the decades there has been a consensus to label such people as Hispanic and Latino.

However, the political correctness crowd made sure to politicize these labels by introducing the new term Latinx, which is allegedly gender neutral and pan-ethnic. In the Spanish language, nouns, pronouns, and adjectives have feminine and masculine forms. This is way too much for politically correct activists in the West who want to export their politically correct ethos abroad.

That said, only a few Hispanics have embraced this politically correct flavor of the week. Of the U.S. adults who identify as Hispanic, only 23 percent of them have heard of the term Latinx.  A measly 3 percent indicated that they use the term to describe themselves, according to a bilingual survey of U.S. Hispanic adults carried out in December 2019 by the Pew Research Center.

Although only a quarter of U.S. Hispanics claim to have heard about the term Latinx, there is a clear generational gap between its usage among different subgroups. Young Hispanics, between the ages of 18 to 29, are the most likely to have heard of the term, with 42 percent of them being acquainted with the term, whereas 7 percent of those 65 or older have heard of the term.

College-educated Hispanics are more likely to have heard the term Latinx than individuals without a college education. Approximately 38 percent of college graduates have heard of Latinx, in addition to 31 percent of those with college experience. By contrast, only 14 percent of those with a high school diploma or less are acquainted with the label.

Additionally, U.S. born Hispanics are more likely than the foreign born to have heard the term (32 percent to 16 percent). Hispanics who mainly speak English or are bilingual are more likely than individuals who mainly speak Spanish to have heard of the term (29 percent for the former vs. 7 percent for the latter.)

Awareness of the term does not translate into overall usage. Of Hispanic women ages 18 to 29, only 14 percent of them use the term. On the other hand, 1 percent of Hispanic men of that age group use the term.

It’s good to hear that Hispanics are rejecting this politically concocted term. The gender wars that the Left is waging are meant to create disruption. The last thing we need in the U.S. is more divisiveness and social instability brought about by the PC mad scientists.
