The Chicago Blackhawks' logo features a Native American wearing warpaint and a feathered headdress. The Blackhawks say their name isn't an offensive racial stereotype because it refers to a real person, Black Hawk. But when a First Nations artist redesigned the logo to make it an actual bird of prey, the image went viral and many people, particularly Native Americans, said it was time for the Blackhawks logo to be updated.

Here's the rendering of a new Black Hawk logo that went viral. The artist, who is Native American, has since licensed this image to another team, but the Blackhawks could commission another artist to draw an image of an actual hawk. Many Native Americans want to see it changed. They say it's time. Plus, the new logo could be totally fierce.

Unless you think of hawks as "weakass birds."

Fans say the logo is in honor of a real person, Black Hawk, and that the image itself is far more respectful than the Cleveland Indians logo, Chief Wahoo, who's been strongly criticized as an ugly racial caricature.

Others say it still requires an update.

Some fans argue the logo itself is not racist, but commemorates a historical figure.

And many fans don't care about Native American representation and are just super super attached to the logo as is.
