Soon enough there will be no mascots that are Native American based. That will leave only "white" type mascots. And over time it will be labeled racist that there are only white mascots.

Professional victims see racism no matter what. Indian mascots are racist therefor should be eliminated. When they're gone, the lack of mascots will be used as evidence of racism.

If Police crack down on black criminals, that's racist. They're picking on blacks. If Police don't crack down on black criminal, that's racist. They don't care about crime in black communities.

If you don't let college Fraternities cater to black students, that's racist. If you do let a Fraternity cater to blacks, then it's racist because blacks are under-represented at the other Fraternities.

Professional victims are just parasites on society, and everything that comes out of their mouths is BS.

Aren't most mascots animals and such?

Even for most of them, the mascots are animals and such. The mascot for the Indians is a purple monster. The mascot for the Sooners is a horse. The mascot for the Braves is a baseball. The mascot for the Fighting Irish is a Leprechaun. The mascot for the Rajun Cajuns is a pepper.

If they used an Indian it would be considered racist
The mascot for the Sooners is a horse. The mascot for the Braves is a baseball
same reason
The mascot for the Fighting Irish is a Leprechaun. The mascot for the Rajun Cajuns is a pepper.

But they don't. Bronto said they do, and that if we got rid of the Native American mascots, that would only leave mascots based on white people. I'm just pointing out that he's wrong. Most mascots are animals and such, not depictions of people at all.

Then we should be able to have the Redskins as long as the mascot that runs on the field is a penguin. How about the fightin Negros or fightin spicks as long as the mascot that runs out is a unicorn...

So we're talking about team names now, not mascots? Okay. I agree that team names shouldn't use racial terms that are disrespectful. As long as they aren't disrespectful, I don't see a problem.
