The legislation, which was signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, will take effect in 2017.

Only four California schools are currently using the name. Read more at The Sacramento Bee.



  1. 1) Is it not sad that the State of California had nothing better to do than stick it’s nose into the life of HS kids.
    2) What is scary is what happens if cv”s they decide to go after Yiddishkeit.

  2. Political correctness can survive only through the state’s mechanism of enforcement. Progressivism is another name for fascism.

  3. If American Indians find the nickname derogatory and offensive we shouldn’t use it. Isn’t that just common sense and decency? No offense was intended when the nickname was given, but times have changed and nowadays it’s no better than calling someone a “Blackskin” or “Yellowskin” which I think we can all agree is insulting.

  4. Charlie, your favorite “progressive” universities sometimes actively sometimes passively endorse persecution and double standard regarding the Jews. Where is your wonderful government when it comes to defend our people from a treat much worse than being called a redskin. PC does not protect all groups based on a need – some animals are more equal than others – we will always be less equal in the eye of the liberal fascist.

  5. to # 4: What’s wrong with treating your Jewish brothers better than the rest? Goes against your libtard ideology? Are you the kind to mistreat other Jews just to prove how “fare” you are?
