Opponents, critics, and racists called them the Cleveland Indians.

When it came time to rename the team, the local sports media decided to turn the insult around and throw it in the face of the assholes, while honoring and having the back of their guy.

Today, Cleveland backtracks on that stand-up move and further cements itself as the joke city of the world.

100 percent right. It was a derisive label, and in defiance, they called the team that. In time, the uninformed just missed out on the meaning.
