The Washington Redskins and Cleveland Indians have long been the subject of protests from Native American groups. Even high school teams aren't immune <a href="http://kvpr.org/post/california-high-school-cheers-r-b-s">from such issues.</a> But closer to home there’s another sort of debate over the logo for the sports teams from Fresno State - the Bulldog.
