Right, this is extremely common nowadays, across the country. Nothing southie like about it.

I wonder when the day will come that people get offended by Notre Dave's leprechaun mascot and team name of 'fighting Irish.'

As long a it's pertaining to white people it seems anything goes. Imagine if there were a team called, fighting blacks or fighting indians, Mexicans etc. *smh*

Back when Notre Dame was majority Irish, they chose that name to represent themselves. And they are free to change it any time they believe it's offensive.

I would welcome an HBCU deciding to call themselves The Fighting Mau Maus.

Some parts of it may have value but not all. Some of Southie culture has unfortunately long been associated with racism, homophobia, ignorance, xenophobia, and illegal activity.
