The current mascot is offensive and represents a symbol that tied to the preservation racism and slavery. This type of imagery is beneath such a prestigious university.

Went to high school in Las Vegas. Embarrassing that a university so far from the heart of the confederacy holds to the Lost Cause.

Hey Reb and The Rebels represent systemic racism, and have no place at the most diverse university in the U.S., or anywhere in this world.

1. The whole "we rebelled from UNR" thing is out of everybody's memory
2. HEY REB! IS CONFEDERATE IMAGERY
3. White people don't get to tell POC that something is not racist.
4. It doesn't represent us. It just... doesn't.

UNLV Alum - always hated the Hey Reb mascot - Confederates LOST. Time for a new mascot that is NOT a white male. Give us a desert animal. No sharks. Tarkanian was great, but UNLV is much more than basketball.
