I respond to whether mascots like Richland and Kamiakin high schools should be changed to "culturally friendly" symbols. I disagree that their mascots are offensive in any way whatsoever. Most school districts in this country honor Native American culture by adopting mascots based on aboriginal people and culture, not to offend them. As for these high schools' symbols, let them stay.
Is the Richland Bombers' symbol offensive? It isn't, nor even threatening, of course.
