Makes no sense. It’s not like Native Americans are offended. Wow - the powers to be have nothing better to do???

It would be like Army getting rid of the Mules!

A blackbird is a real thing, and the mascot pics that I saw didn't seem racist, so I'm not sure what the issue is for people against it.

As the song said Bye, Bye Blackbirds.

I remember we lost to LIU at Alumni Hall. Richie Parker who had been accused of sexual assault or something like that beat us. Ugh.

Come on people! The black in blackbirds has to be racist no? Next the Crimson Tide will have to drop the crimson part so as not to offend crimson people.

I think Duke should change their mascot, the devil in Blue Devils could mean they are heavily into the satanic and thus could be offensive!
