“The NFL Washington Team” is not alone.  Now a high school in California is now being accused of having a racist moniker and is being called upon to change the team’s name and mascot.

Coachella Valley High School is getting the attention of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.  The group has complained to the school district because the school’s teams are known as the “Arabs.”

The “Arab” mascot used is a caricature of a heavy-set, scowling, mustached man wearing a turban.  Click the link above to take a look for yourself.

The group says that the mascot is an example of “gross stereotyping.”  The school has used the nickname and the mascot since the 1920′s.

What do you think?  Should the name and mascot be changed?  Comment on our Facebook page and vote in today’s Question of the Day:
