I agree with you 100%. I think this is the most ignorant thing I have ever heard. It was stupid to let it get to the point of changing it, but then to follow through with it??? Ole Ms will never be the same. Black Bear. Why not two tone bear? I can't believe blacks are not offended ONCE AGAIN...black///bear?? why not a white bear? if we want to get really stupid...I am sure blacks would have something to be offended on that one too....

Maybe they could put a rope in the ole bear's hand. Maybe tie it in some kind of fancy knot.
