Racist Paternalism

The WSJ had a great column on this today. The American Spectator had this one yesterday. The NCAA has decided that the Seminole Indian tribe, which unanimously voted to approve FSU's use of the nickname Seminoles to honor them, is too stupid to know what is best for itself. So the NCAA has stepped in to bar the use of the name and any similar mascots from NCAA play.

The ruling comes from Indianapolis, Indiana.

Update -- Here is the WSJ link in Opinion Journal.
