That would be nice, but no, it was a slam on the Asians. Several members of my family recall it from when they were in HS. This town had a sign on the bridge into town that said "All N-words must be outside of the city limits by X time." This sign was up into the late 70's. My dad remembers it. Disgusting.

Oh. In that case, "Sometimes it's better not to know what they were thinking." *sigh*

Richland High School in Washington calls their teams the Bombers, and their logo is a mushroom cloud. The name and logo were adopted shortly after the end of WWII.

Robert E. Lee High School in Jacksonville Florida. The mascot is "The General" in full Confederate regalia.

To add salt to the wound on that one, the student body is 64% African American.

Robert E. Lee hated slavery, so it's really not as bad as it sounds.

He did! That is absolutely 100% true.

... But it still looks bad.

RE: Silly School names/mascots
My high school mascot was officially a "Trail Blazer" - yeah, right, a Catholic school...Dodgy

The 'trail' part was mostly forgotten...sort of hard to work into a cheer.

RE: Silly School names/mascots
My school didn't have one because I don't live in the States and we're not fucking retarded.

In saying that, if it did have one it would be one of the following cliche shit NZers do: A kiwi bird, a kiwi fruit, a jandle or a kiwi bird with a kiwi fruit body wearing jandles.

NZ: We're not retarded like the rest of the world, we're retarded in our own unique way.

That should be this countries motto.
