ESPNā€™s Bomani Jones has social media riled up over a T-shirt he wore while co-hosting ESPNā€™sĀ Mike & MikeĀ in place of Mike Golic.

Jonesā€™ T-shirt, which was created by Shelf Life Clothing almost 10 years ago, features the slogan ā€œCaucasiansā€ instead of ā€œIndians,ā€ with a photo of a white person instead of the Cleveland Indiansā€™ Chief Wahoo. Just as in the controversy surrounding the Washington Redskinsā€™ name, the Indiansā€™ mascot has been the focus of cries of racism.

And speaking of crying, many tears were spilled on social media because some people found Jonesā€™ shirt offensive (ahem ā€¦ bet you they werenā€™t Native Americans).

Jones said he wore the T-shirt because thereā€™s no reason the team should be using Chief Wahoo as a mascot. When people tweeted him about the T-shirt, Jones handled it the only way he couldā€”with his own brand of sarcasm.

I'm pretty sure these T-shirts are selling like hotcakes now.
