fighting whities

Postby Toddandpenguin on Thu Mar 14, 2002 7:41 am

In case you haven't heard the news, a basketball team has names itself the "Fighting Whites" in response to anit American Indian sports names and mascots. They chose an old white man as their mascot, and now they are being inundated with t-shirt requests.
One of the <a href="http://www.washtimes.com/sports/20020313-68255912.htm">funniest stories</a> I've read in years.

"The Crackers" or "the Honkies" seems more appropriate.

Hoo-rah!
If I were them, I'd a picked <a href="http://www.subgenius.com">H.R. "Bob" Dobbs</a> for their mascot, but then all the Pinks would have whined about it.
THE CONSPIRACY IS REAL.

I like what this person wrote on the forum linked above.
<b>In regards to the choice of mascot:</b>
To really make your point, you should have used a depiction of either:
a) Adolf Hitler
b) Jesse Helms
c) a Klansman
d) a hillbilly
e) all of the above

now, that woulda been funny! Then someone might of actually been offended.
