"George the Colonial," the mascot for George Washington University, is no more. Thanks to a recently completed referendum, the students at GWU have abolished their traditional mascot, apparently deeming him to be too offensive.
"Goodbye George: GW Students Vote to 'Remove and Replace' Mascot"
That mascot, named "George the Colonial," is of course inspired by George Washington. It's only a matter of time before the students and administrators seek to rename George Washington University.
Personally, I find the increasing political correctness sweeping our nation, especially academia, to be deeply offensive and distressing. That university students in today's America would find the founder of their country unworthy of gratitude and honor is something no American should be satisfied with.
