There’s really not a delicate way to put this — so I may as well just rip the band-aid right off. Rutgers University has been overrun by a bunch of politically-correct dingbats.
The Rutgers University Student Assembly passed a bill that seeks to diversify the school’s mascot, the Daily Caller reports.
I’m going to try to keep a straight face here, folks — but the youngsters over at Rutgers (that’s in New Jersey) are upset because their school mascot is a Caucasian Scarlet Knight.
One student legislator told the school newspaper he became chagrined after glancing at the current mascot’s “light skin” and “blue eyes.” I think that’s code for “white dude.”
So now they want Rutgers to include black, female, Asian, and Latino mascots.
Why stop there? What about the Eskimos? Or transgender students with freckles? And how could they forget the Little People?
By the way – in addition to the black, Latino, Asian and female mascots — the students also want the university to field a third-gender mascot.
A third-gender mascot?
I don’t even know how to respond to that.
Maybe Rutgers should just consider replacing the Scarlet Knight with a rainbow-colored, politically-correct, gender-neutral blockhead?
Sweet mercy, America.
