Colorado protesters name ball team 'Fighting Whities' GREELEY, Colo. -- Unable to persuade a school district to drop a mascot name that offends them, some American Indian students at the University of Northern Colorado are fighting fire with fire. They've named their intramural basketball team "The Fighting Whities." The team, made up of American Indians, Hispanics and whites, chose a white man as mascot and wear jerseys that say "Every thang's going to be all white." They are upset that Eaton High School uses an American Indian caricature on the logo of its team, the Reds. Eaton School District Superintendent John Nuspl said the Reds logo is not derogatory and called the group's criticism insulting.
