Fast Focus: Should mascots be culturally sensitive? Ask the tribes

August 25, 2013 

Knowing that the "Bombers" refers to the airplane paid for by workers at the Hanford words that helped end the war with Japan, I have no problem with Bombers. "Braves" recognize brave people of the Native Americans who attempted to save their lands from invaders. I do not think that that is offensive in any way.

If the tribes involved want it changed, by all means change it, but if they have no problem with it, then leave it alone. It's their call.
