Cap Controversy (Opinions Wanted)

Recently the Atlanta Braves released images of a new batting practice hat.  This new hat brings a back a retro logo that they started using while they were still the Milwalkee Braves.  However, this hat is causing a comotion because of the offensive logo.  The screaming Indian logo had been pushed off to the side to over 20 years, and that may have been for the better.  Here is the image released by the Braves.

Being of the younger generation my opinion is probably in the minority, but I don't really see how this logo is offensive.  Honestly, I think the hat looks nice.  That doesn't mean I agree with using a logo that may offend someone, but I just like the way it looks.  Another thing is, if this is offensive, does that make the Cleveland Indians logo offensive?  It is basically the same thing only more cartoonish (if that's a word).  Just saying...  And, would it be racist to wear this hat?  So, are you offended by this logo?  Please share your opinions below.
