World Series Banner

Filed under: Item of the Day — Jason Onerheim @ 12:01 am

A large hand-made pennant banner made of black and red felt. The pennant reads “Racists” above an image of a tomahawk. The banner was made by Joe D. Horse Capture and Lisa Ranallo of Minneapolis, Minnesota, in response to the presence of the Atlanta Braves baseball team’s name and their fans’ “tomahawk chop” at the 1991 World Series, held in Minneapolis.
