UT-RGV Mascot Controversy(Blog#3)

Recently a merging of UTPA and UTB into UT-RGV are considering of having a new mascot, Although some students have a different opinion on the Aztecs. A student argued have some mexican are mixed with other tribes and they are not full descent of the Aztecs but seventy percent of the Mexican population are considered mestizos.  Students may say it “cool” to have the Aztecs as a mascot. However, do to the Mexico History, people feel disrespected about this situation. Personally using the Aztecs as a mascot is not appropriate because of the history behind the Aztecs. Also, I would like to have the mockingbird as the mascot because it will remind me of the book How to Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
