Now Tigers Are Racist

One great thing about political correctness is that anything can be declared racist at any time for any reason, affording endless opportunities for social justice warriors to indulge in their bullying. Apparently running out of Indian-themed mascots to forbid, moonbats have now gone after Louisiana State University on the grounds that tigers are racist. The crybullies are circulating yet another petition:

According to the author of the petition—a user going by the name “LaMallori LSU”—the nickname was chosen by “powerful white males” as an homage to the Confederate “Louisiana Tigers” regiment, whose members “were known for their propensity for violence on and off the battle field [sic].”

Alternatively, LaMallori could have based her argument on the Nazis having Tiger tanks.

“It is incredibly insulting for any African American to have to attend to a school that honors Confederate militantism,” the petition declares.

Someone get this moonbat a newspaper. The Civil War ended 152 years ago.

In case you aren’t convinced that tigers are racist…

[…]the author adds that “it’s also cruel to cage a wild animal for the amusement of privileged white people” who have “never been in a cage!”

Caging a wild animal for the amusement of privileged black people is presumably okay, because that wouldn’t be racist, or maybe I just can’t follow the logic.

No word on whether the Detroit Tigers will be forced to change their name too.

    In the words of George Santayana, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”.

    As with most everything that liberals do, their feverish quest to erase all history of racism, slavery, and other offensive things, will likely cause people to eventually forget the past and surely history will repeat itself.

    African Americans don’t have to go to LSU. Try Grambling, a historic black university also located in Louisiana, instead. But.. wait… Grambling’s mascot is the Tigers. Oops.

    To say nothing of “Tony the Tiger,” of Frosted Flakes fame. Is nothing sacred?

    @ishiiteyounot:disqus
    Originally the story took place in INDIA. There are NO tigers native to Africa.
    As far as Sambo, if a little kid can out talk, out think, and con Four tigers, I REALLY want to be on his team.

    Always love to see the LSU Tigers lose a football game, coming from a different SEC school (many years ago), but if you numb-skulls change the team mascot because some moron screams “racism!” (how that flies is waaaaaay beyond me), then you deserve to crash and burn; just shut down the university right now — give up! Don’t be pussies, LSU Tigers! Stand up for yourselves for once! Tell this PoS to Go straight to Hell, do not pass “Go,” do not collect $200.00!

  9. Agrippa says:

    Oh, no, ICE! WE have to change for them, don’cha know? These pathetic wusses will never stop until somebody (like LSU) stands up to them, once and for all.

  10. SNuss says:

    More and more, Leftists are emulating ISIS by destroying historic monuments and symbols that they find “offensive”, and committing violence against those with whom they do not agree.

  11. James McEnanly says:

    There is no way that Sambo could be an African. Tigers are found in Asia.

    Tiger Woods is racist???

    ““It is incredibly insulting for any African American to have to attend to a school that honors Confederate militantism,” the petition declares.”

    They don’t have to attend LSU. In fact, other than for its ranking in various athletic modalities, LSU would be better off without them, as graduation rates and average test scores would rise while the cost of remedial education and incidence of on-campus crime would fall.
