    Chris Rickert: For opponents of race-based mascots, WIAA a tempting target

    Using a questionable interpretation of the First Amendment as political cover, Republican Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill last month that makes it much more difficult to stop Wisconsin high schools from using Native American mascots and images for their sports teams.
    The Legislature remains solidly in Republican hands and — due to Republican-drawn legislative district maps — will probably stay that way. So it’s unlikely people who are offended by the “Indians” or the “Chieftains” or the “Braves” can count on any relief from state lawmakers any time soon.
