I think Mr. Smudde is an attention seeker. Stoking animosity between the races just to show the world what a noble, diverse soul he is. Does he think that these schools chose a mascot that they thought was worthy of mockery, to represent their teams. Not likely! If a team called themselves THE WHITEYS they'd be called racist, with the claim that the're saying that WHITENESS is a sign of superiority. Why? Because nobody would choose a team name, that made them appear to be losers. Mr. Smudde needs to pursue another cause to draw attention to himself.


Well stated, and if this change is forced on these schools other names like Vikings should also have to be changed.
