Let's take a look at the bottom ones: The Newark Negroes! New Jersey needs more football!

Let's give LA a new team and call the The L.A. Asians!

And as long as we insist these racial stereotypes are solely to "honor" these different ethnic groups (as well as provide some random ambiguous polls), then all is well.

And since historical connection seems to be very important for some folks to justify things, we have some deep history to pick from.

For instance, the The Newark Negroes! or The Newark Coloreds! could use this historically accurate adaptation for mascots:



It is all about "honoring" people, amirite?

And why is that any different than this?
