Social Justice Whiners at USC: ‘Our White Horse Mascot is Racist’


Help, my eyes are rolling so far into the back of my head, I am afraid they will get stuck!

With all the social justice warriors in America making up scenarios in order to play the victim card, I roll my eyes more now than I did when I was told to clean my room as a teenager (and that was a lot).

Students at the University of Southern California are throwing the race card on the field. What is it for this time, you ask? The long-time white horse mascot’s name is “Traveler.” Apparently that was General E. Lee’s horse’s name as well, although the spellings are different. Lee’s horse’s name was spelled with two L’s: Traveller.

Los Angeles Times reports:

At the rally, according to the student newspaper the Daily Trojan, Saphia Jackson, co-director of the USC Black Student Assembly, asked students not to be quiet, and reminded that “white supremacy hits close to home” and referenced the name of the Trojans mascot.

The Black Student Assembly did not respond to requests for comment, but questions about the name’s provenance have increased on social media in the midst of the national discussion on race.

Fox News Insider reports that the “racist” horse is ridden in by a Trojan warrior who wields a sword. The University claims that is “has always been a proud symbol of Troy” and of course that the name is coincidental, having nothing to do with General Lee.

Bernie Goldberg reacted this morning, saying “parody is becoming reality” when it comes to outrage on the Left.

He said the story is “nothing compared” to ESPN, where adults, not students, decided to move Asian-American announcer Robert Lee off of a Virginia football broadcast due to his name.
