Well, there were the Pekin Chinks, the Fighting Coons (I can’t find a web reference for them, but I remember a school having some variation of wetback as a mascot briefly), and all were retired eventually, but for some reason despite the NCAA & other organizations penalizing members for retaining racist mascots, the MLB, NHL, & other major leagues refuse to force their membership to rebrand. Oh wait, I know the reason. Racism.
