I think this is probably one of the best civics lessons these kids will ever have - every studentRead More ought to have to do this. **** Jeremiah

Why should anyone be upset about this. Arabs should be PROUD that we make them a mascot for aRead More football team. I think that is great. We should salute the Arabs by doing that. I lived in Saudi Arabia for six months working there and I had a great time with Arabs - they gave me so much food I was stuffed. Has an Arab person COMPLAINED that we honor Arabia by making a mascot of an Arab? Ahsalamlekum; Walekum Salam (sp?)

CAIR never once offered even an admonishment for the 9/11 perps....not once.

i'd change the mascot to a crusader on horseback jabbing a sword through a grounded rag's heart.Read More this would strike fear into the opposing team...no?

The image is from the 30's. Oddly enough no one from the Arab defamation group even showed up. It'sRead More kind of ironic that this group would want it removed considering our countries current feelings about the Middle East. To be honest, the less scarves, turbans, camels and oil wells people are reminded of, the better. In other words, they are keeping the image DESPITE our political and sometimes racist views. So what if it's got a big nose and beard. I know! Keep the logo and change yourselves to "The Godfathers!!" The equestrian team would be EPIC!

How about we all get off of this politically correct thing. Everyone is insulted about somethingRead More part of the time. Some people are insulted about something most of the time. No one is insulted none of the time. Perhaps mascots should only be non-sentient objects in shades of gray, no shades of shade color. Or perhaps we could eliminate everyone that has a discrimination problem.

So why no picture of this "offensive" mascot in the story? 4.2 seconds on the internetRead More and it pops up, and it looks like Popeye with a towel on his head. Odd how nobody's complaining about Hollywood High School having an arab (Sheiks) as a mascot, but maybe it being a handsome figure has something to do with it. Seems it's not the name that's a problem, but the unflattering character. I love hypocrisy.

What about the Coachella High Crackers? Huh, can you picture it? Sounds pretty good, right? Okay,Read More then maybe the Coachella Klansmen? Pretty catchy.

Easy Fix.....CV should be known as the "Illegals", Indio from the Rajahs to theRead More "Beaners". Palm Springs from the Indians to the "LGBT's", La Quinta from Blackhawks to "Punks". Lets call a spade a spade!!!

Traditional Arab head covering is now racist? Why don't you question Obama drone strikes that areRead More killing innocent Arabs instead of some school mascot. You're already in DC so walk over. Do the street names in Coachella also offend you?

I feel that cursive must be preserved for a multitude of reasons--not the least of which is thatRead More many documents require "sign" then "print." Learning cursive requires practice which is a good exercise in self-discipline, something which seems to be going by the wayside these days.

When you do have to write, it's so much faster to do so in cursive, giving it a very practicalRead More application. Personally, it feels more "grown-up" to me also.

I'm glad to be schooled in a foreign country during my elementary days. I learned in my elementaryRead More school the disciplines to be be a leader, focus on sharpen my mind with basic skills, and share new discovery with my fellow classmates. With the innovative technology available in America, I truly believe that American public school program can improve in creating a school-within-a-school, a cost effective way to offer program that enhances the dynamic interactions among the students, student and teacher relationships. Structure the program with vocational skills to give our children options in technology, arts & crafts, carpentry, retail management, customer service, nursing aides, medical coding, home keeping, auto mechanics, creative writing, and performance arts. These programs help our children enter the real world with tools to make a living while exploring the higher academic opportunities.
