Bravo

It doesn't take long for people to realize that I have a short fuse for political correctness for the sake of political correctness (also known as stupidity). I have to take a moment to applaud the folks at UNC-Pembroke for standing up to the stupid bureaucrats at the NCAA. The NCAA wants the school to change the name of their mascot from Braves because that name is "racially insensitive." Who is the NCAA to say something is insensitive? I'd bet there are very few Native Americans working in the NCAA offices. As it turns out, these bureaucrats don't do their homework - the school was founded as a school for the Lumbee Indians. Needless to say, the Lumbees and the folks at Pembroke are going to stick to their guns on this one.
