The Saint Joseph High School in South Bend is doing away with the nickname “The Indians.”

The school will retire the nickname at the end of the school year. This, after a committee was formed at the start of the learning year, to evaluate when the school should keep or change the nickname.

At the conclusion of their work, which included listening to students, alumni, parents, faculty and staff, the committee voted unanimously to make a recommendation to change the nickname.

The recommendation has been accepted and, during the next several months, a new mascot and nickname will be chosen.

The school hopes to have everything in place by the start of the fall semester.

The Woke white liberals are eliminating the native indigenous people of Indiana. The next thing to change is the name of our state to something else.

I agree with Adam. Why are people not up in arms regarding the name “Indiana.” Doesn’t take much intelligence to figure out where that name came from.

Eric, I feel sorry for the many former and current students of St Joseph High School. The majority of people did not make this decision, only a handful of Woke idiots. Stop erasing history in America.
