There has been much discussion over the years about whether professional sports teams and schools should use Indian mascots. There are plenty of examples: Washington Redskins, the Fighting Illini, etc.
In Dare County, this has recently become an issue again. The Virginian-Pilot reported Friday that former state Board of Education member Eddie Davis spoke at a Dare County education board meeting. He encouraged Manteo schools to stop using Indian mascots, particularly the "Redskins" team name.
What's your opinion? Should sports teams and schools use Indian mascots?
