More On Mean Mascots

After my post earlier this week on the University of Mary’s consideration that their mascot (the Marauders) were “not nice to women,” I decided to see what other offenders we should consider. Here’s the beginning of my list of collegiate mascots that should be changed:

East Tennessee State Bucs

Bucs are pirates, just like Marauders.  Mean to women, of course

Duquesne Dukes

Sexist. I mean, really!  Dukes were also probably mean to serfs or something.

George Washington Colonials

In this day and age? Isn’t colonialism a bad thing? Mean to indigenous peoples.

Lasalle Explorers

Mean to indigenous peoples.

University of Massachusetts Minutemen

Mean to the British.  Also sexist.

Xavier Musketeers

Violence! Mean to somebody, I’m sure.  And sexist!

Duke Blue Devils

Offensive to Christians. No wait! That’s OK.

Miami Hurricanes

Insensitive to victims of hurricanes. Hurricanes are not nice to anyone.

Virginia Cavaliers

Aren’t Cavaliers like Musketeers?  Mean!  Mean!

Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Makes fun of Christians; more specifically Baptists. Oops, sorry - that one’s OK. Not on the NCAA’s “to be offended” list.

More in the coming days and weeks ahead.
