With the Fighting Sioux nickname finally getting the axe (pun absolutely intended), shouldn't the NCAA look into banning the Fighting Irish name next? Stereotyping Native Americans as being aggressive and violent is just as bad as stereotyping Irish people as being aggressive and violent, right? We know this will never happen, but I think it is very interesting that people are always on a crusade about "offensive" Native American names yet the "Fighting" in ND's name is never questioned.
EDIT: I didn't get the point across that my beef is with the NCAA for changing North Dakota's name. I don't have a problem with the "Fighting Irish" name, I just have a problem with the double standard.
