Reader: Is anyone really offended by DU mascot Boone?
Yesterday, Patricia Calhoun's wrote about the largest online booster for Boone, the University of Denver's embattled mascot. The website's plug-pulling appears to mark the end of the campaign on behalf of Boone, who's being mothballed due to concerns that some might see him as a racist figure. Such claims infuriate one reader.
This is SO fucking ridiculous! I want to know who it is that is offended by Boone. The administration keeps saying this, but I have yet to hear from those so offended. So who is it and why do they have SO much power?
No more money from alumni!
