A graduate from a Southern California high school under fire for its "Arab" mascot says the mascot is not a swipe at any ethnic group, but rather a source of pride at the school.

"There was no intention to demean Arabs or be discriminatory in any way. It was created as a proud mascot of Coachella Valley High School, and it's been that way ever since. I don't think it's right to decide now that you can't do that anymore. It is political correctness run amok, I would say," David Hinkle, a graduate of the school's class of '61, told MyDesert.com. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/11/07/sou...ab-mascot/

I think they need to get rid of that mascot before the entire situation gets blown out of proportion.
