St. Paul schools consider ban on Washington Redskins gear

 


Skyler Kuczaboski hadn't given much thought to the Washington Redskins mascot before last year.

Now, the Harding High School junior and Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe member is in position to influence a ban on it and other racist mascots from St. Paul Public Schools.

"I think that the Redskins logo and emblem and all that isn't seen as racist by a lot of people," she said, "but I think that if there was more knowledge about native people and where the Redskins term derived from, then people wouldn't want to wear that."
