“Saranac Community Schools and their R$dskins Mascot”
by waaseyaa'sin christine sy
I was asked to write about SCS R*dskins mascot with the objective of keeping SCS and their mascot in the public eye in a manner that reflects the perspectives of those that wish to see it removed. The request happened because this perspective was not included in the media coverage of this matter and the mascot continues to exist.
It was relatively easy for me to write from this perspective because it’s coherent with my own but it was also difficult because SRC was/is giving mixed messages about their stance on their mascot and their concern for making ethical choices.
