Although many may not be aware, the term Eskimo is a racial slur used against indigenous people. Esko high school’s mascot is an Eskomo. Saying Eskomo is no better than Eskimo, just like a white person saying n—a is no better than saying n—er even though people like to pretend it is. Using this watered down version of the word is still offensive, not to mention that using indigenous people as a mascot is dehumanizing and racist. Among the civil unrest of our country, we can no longer pretend that our school’s mascot is harmless so I propose we change it to something better.
