When the school opened in 1976, nobody gave a second thought to the name Bullets.
They’ve had bad incidents there in the past. Most notably a shop teacher who was permanently disabled when a student attacked him with a hammer.
My guess is this is related to the closure of Langley High and the move of those kids into Brashear. Langley Thugs and Brashear Thugs do not get along at all.
The owner of the Washington Bullets NBA team changed the name, because of not wanting to be associated with gun violence.
This politically correct society is crazy. Years ago, nobody thought anything of the nickname Bullets. Now we are saying we don’t want to glorify gun violence and all that. Same issue with American Indian nicknames, allegedly being offensive.
When will the PETA types weigh in on all of the animal sports nickames? If American Indian nicknames are offensive to American Indians, then aren’t animal nicknames offensive to animals?
