The following comes from a December 23 College Fix article by Nathan Rubbelke:
A coalition of students at the University of San Diego have demanded that administrators denounce Saint Junípero Serra as a mass murderer with a “colonialist legacy.” They also want the Catholic saint’s name stripped from a campus building at the private, Catholic university.
The demand, one of nearly two dozen made by a coalition of black and LGBTQ students calling themselves “Concerned Students at USD,” also demanded that administrators allow “a coalition of native students, staff and faculty” to rename USD’s Serra Hall.
Serra is not the only figure celebrated on campus that Concerned Students at USD believes is a symbol of racism. It also wants USD to ditch its mascot, Diego Torero.
The mascot, which was adopted by USD in 2006, “is a racist and derogatory caricature of Spanish men” the demand states. It calls on the university to replace Diego Torero with a “non-human” mascot.
