Racist Native American 'Mascots' in the Schools: Will the State Ban Them at Last?

The Oregon State Board of Education is getting ready to make a decision on abolishing "Race-Based Native American Mascots" at local schools, and the Oregon Indian Education Association has launched the Mascot Project, asking the Board to ban them in state funded schools. Our guests in the studio are Se-ah-dom Edmo and Sam Sachs, a co-founder of Connections program. What's your take? Call in 503-281-8187.
