Last week a USC rally, protesters said that the Trojans’ mascot horse, Traveller is a racist symbol because it shares the same name as Robert E. Lee’s horse. Not exactly the same name, the USC mascot is named Traveler, while Lee’s favorite horse went by the name Traveller. Saphia Jackson, the co-director of the USC Black Student Assembly opened the rally pleading for students to speak out against the forces of white supremacy on campus, and pointed the finger at Traveler.

“I push the administration, faculty and staff to have serious engagements and not dismiss our issues because we are here for serious change,” Jackson said, according to the Daily Trojan.
