Hey Racist!?


  • Protecting the sage grouse is hard on rural communities. [RJ]
  • Three people were sentenced with no prison time in the HOA scandal yesterday. [RJ]
  • There was an anti-racism student rally at UNLV yesterday and, guess what, the topic of the Hey Reb! mascot came up again. [Las Vegas Sun]

  1. So...it's okay to protect a stupid bird, but nobody wants to protect our children from medical marijuana? This town is in trouble.

    1. I'm hoping you're being facetious because otherwise you have won the functionally retarded attorney of the day award. You know who protects your kids from weed? You. Medical marijuana, and marijuana in general, is less harmful than booze. Tobacco is more harmful too. i don't smoke weed, but your logic is giving me such a headache that I think i"m going to apply for a medical marijuana card. And then give all the weed to poor unsuspecting kids who aren't smart enough to make their own decisions.

    2. I agree with your post except the "functionally retarded attorney of the day." I am truly convinced that less than half of the posters on this page on average (including 11:01) are attorneys. This page offers a chance for the anonymous trolls to come and mix it up with attorneys and pose as attorneys.

    3. A general expansion of access to weed won't really cause the children of our community to be much more fucked up than they already are. But such an expansion will certainly increase the number of people in the community seeking to access government paid food, housing, healthcare, disability payments, and student loan bailouts. That's the nature of weed.

    4. 12:44 - you clearly have no experience with marijuana because if you did you would never say such things. You are probably one of those tree huggers too and are in love with a damn sage grouse.

    5. No, unfortunately, think a lot posters on here are attorneys. Dumbed down the bar for Boyd 2011-2013 grads.

    6. Let's just let the sage grouse smoke a dobey! All problems solved.

    7. 12:44 here. As a criminal defense attorney and a former wayward youth you would be incorrect. But troll on.

    8. 12:44...Because your parents failed you, and you couldn't handle yourself, others should be barred from consuming marijuana? As a criminal defense attorney, you should know that many of your colleagues partake and show up to court with marijuana in their systems from the night before and perform just fine. Enough with the nanny state. If you think marijuana is what led you astray, you hold yourself in a much higher regard than anyone else does.

    9. 5:29 I think all that pot smoking has damaged your brain cells and ability to comprehend. Why don't you go back and re-read what 12:44 said. Idiot.

    10. Just happened to catch this thread. Recently attended a CLE on substance abuse and the speaker who is a medical doctor showed how marijuana is just as bad as cocaine. They showed brain scans and medical journals. I was surprised because of the pro pot propaganda we have been inundated with.

    11. ^^^^ This is complete bullshit. You are either terrible at comprehension or you are a liar. I am laughing right now at how silly this comment is. You belong in the 1930s.

  3. I think we should have Luke Skywalker as our mascot.

    1. I say we rename the mascot to The Slutty Drunk Kardashians!!! It would give us a serious edge in recruiting.

    2. In think it should be a stripper.

    3. how about changing the mascot to gay icon James Dean...so they can be rebels without a cause.

  4. I think we discussed this before, but even though the UNLV mascot has been updated, it still reeks of the confederacy. Part of it comes from the name, but a big part is from Hey Reb. In an ideal world they would change both the mascot and the name. In this world, we'll probably be lucky if they change the mascot, but here is hoping.

    1. No, in an ideal world, people would remember that Nevada is Battle Born, and has a connection to the Civil War. And that connection wasn't on the side of the Folks Down South, but rather on the side of the damnyankees. But you go ahead and change the mascot. Shall it be a bloody student from the June Rebellion in France? A machete-wielding Hutu from Rwanda? John Hancock or one of his Minutemen? A medal-wearing General Strongman? An angry-looking Sagebrush?

    2. 3:01 what is your point? Do you have one? Yes, NV was on the North's side which (politics and political correctness aside) means having a confederate mascot makes even less sense.

      Delete
    3. It means you're a damn fool if you think Hey Reb! is a Confederate. The Rebel Wolf might have had a connection. Hey Reb! does not. He's a mustachioed man with a big hat. They call him a mountain man, and so he is.

  5. Who cares? I'm distracted by the Rebel Girls and the cheerleaders anyway.

    1. Only the Rebel Girls though. Mostly the hot brunette who is always front and center. I'd french kiss the shit out of her. All the cheerleaders are fat though so no thank you.

    2. Like she would want your disgusting, fat, receding hair line, 60 year old stinky breath tongue down her throat you moron!

    3. You don't know me. I'm hawt as fuck. But you're probably right. I'd just stick my tongue in her fart box instead just to be safe.

    4. 3:26/4:46 Why don't you go troll on the RJ comments section. You'd fit in better there.

    5. Jackie Hansen. Happy stalking creeper. ;)

  6. Well this was certainly an interesting day to browse through. This is why I don't go to attorney mixers in this town. Not that anyone here would want me. I am fat and don't care who smokes medical marijuana.
