LANGHORNE, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania school district will appeal a state commission’s ruling that it can continue to call its sports teams “Redskins” but must remove logos that “negatively stereotype Native Americans.”
The Neshaminy School District board voted 9-0 Monday night to appeal last month’s ruling by the state Human Relations Commission. In a statement, the district accused the commission of “unsubstantiated allegations of racism” and ordering actions that could cost nearly $1 million.
