The debate has reached Hillsborough County schools, and now six elementary schools are expected to change their mascots.

The Hillsborough County school district has decided that ‘Indians’, ‘Chiefs,’ “Warriors’ and ‘Braves’ can’t be used.

The affected schools are:
Adams Middle School “Warriors”
Brooker Elementary School “Braves”
Forest Hills Elementary “Braves”
Ruskin Elementary “Braves”
Summerfield Elementary “Indians”
Thonotosassa Elementary “Chiefs”

The schools left unaffected are Chamberlain “Chiefs” and East Bay “Indians”

Is the use of these names insensitive? Offensive? What do you think?
