The American's with Charlie LeDuff: WAHOO! It ain't funny Cleveland, it's racist

- CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Indians are in town. And so is their racist mascot.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Cleveland is a thousand times worse than Washington D.C.

Charlie LeDuff goes to Cleveland, Ohio to point out the obvious.
