A New Nevada Law Bans Racial Mascots In Schools And ‘Sundown Sirens’

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has legislation requiring schools to change any name, logo, mascot, song or identifier that is racially discriminatory.

The measure prohibits racially discriminatory mascots, images, sounds or songs in schools. And counties can no longer sound sirens that once signified it was time for certain people to leave town.
