Orem Owlz hosting "Caucasian Heritage Night"


Recommended Posts

3 things:

I can't believe the Angels string of crummy press.

Articles that just quote twitter as if it means something are the worst.

Unless they are going full Renaissance Faire, what is the promotion exactly? Caucasian is pretty broad to identify some common cultural experience on which to base your stupid mid-inning games, mascot outfit, and walk up music.

It sounds a little too much like 'white pride' which is associated with white supremacy groups...a bit iffy especially considering recent events. A lot of teams do promotions that celebrate people who have white ethnic backgrounds in a manner that doesn't invoke that. The Cyclones have done Italian, Irish, Jewish and I think Greek heritage nights, for instance, and the Angels have done Irish nights. Nobody bats an eyelash about that...perhaps the Owls should have just done 'Mormon night' or a series of country nights instead. I'm white and a 'Caucasian heritage night' idea just makes my skin crawl.
