I was somewhat taken aback this week. With all the dialogue about easing racial tension in the City I was amazed that at least on the national level the PC (political correctness) pendelum went to the extreme. Apparently the NCAA has imposed some penalty on certain schools/teams for using mascots based on native-american culture.
This strikes me as odd, I thought the objective of picking a mascot was to pick a symbol that reflects your team's strength, prowess, tenacity, skill, etc. Not to depict your team as a joke and a bunch of losers or to be derogatory in any other way. Goes to show that some people are never happy.
