Rutgers wants to add black, Latino and 3rd gender mascots – white male is troubling

In keeping with the prevailing theme on today’s liberal college campuses that the white male represents everything evil, Rutgers University students want to change the school’s white, male mascot.

The school’s original “Scarlett Knight” mascot was first used in 1955 but now, 60 years later, it’s not good enough for freshman Emmet Brennan who introduced a bill in the Rutgers Student Association to have multi-cultural “friends” accompany the Scarlett Knight to university events.

According to The Daily Targum, the school’s newspaper, Brennan was troubled by the mascot’s fair skin and light eyes.

“This does not seem right,” Brennan said he thought at the time. “Our mascot does not represent how diverse we are as a school.”

It was shortly thereafter that Brennan began collaborating with Mohamed Asker, the student association’s student affairs chair and member of the Arab Cultural Club, to craft the bill that would bring about the creation of the Scarlett Knights friends who could be black, Latino, Asian, female or even “third gender,” whatever that is.

“What we were thinking — the way the bill’s laid out — it’s not defined that we need an Asian knight, a black knight, a Latino knight,” Brennan told the Targum. “That we would really leave it up to the different student organizations … and basically the student body as a whole to determine how many knights they’d like and what these knights would represent.”

Brennan said the measure passed by a wide margin and precautions are being taken concerning the development of the future mascots to limit the possibility any of them might be offensive, because God forbid anyone, anywhere is ever offended by anything.

“What we were really hoping is that this would be a discussion with the entire student body,” he told the Targum. “So we would have a working committee of the different multicultural (organizations), possibly the Queer Caucus — basically students who represent a unique voice, and have them all working together at the same table to make sure red flags that arise with any of those groups — that mascot would immediately be tabled.”

But despite the bill passing the change is not a done deal.

Rutgers spokesman Carl Blesch told Campus Reform that he was unaware of the bill and that the athletic department would have to address it before any change could be made.
