Marquette: “Warriors” Outlawed, “Braves” OK

An e-mail from an alum brings news that Marquette doesn’t mind one particular Indian nickname:
I am forwarding to you an advert forwarded to me by the MU Young Alumni for a sponsored outing, called Milwaukee Braves Night (apparently a baseball game at Miller Park featuring the Brewers in Braves regalia).

I find this hysterically hypocritical. The University is condoning attending a baseball game honoring a past team with a horribly offensive Native American mascot, yet will not allow its sports teams to be renamed a Native American-associated mascot (despite a willingness to drop any Indian logo, imagery, etc.).

Oh, the humanity!
