    Local story for me, but this shit is happening everywhere. I could care less about a local baseball team, and even less about the mascot. Its the point of the matter that pisses me off. This is what the local Hispanic community is pissed off about? How about speaking out against all your little sp** gangs running around robbing and killing people. The Lehigh Valley is turning into Philly, and your pissed about a mascot???

    Hispanic Community Leaders React to Mascot Name Change

    A pig by any other name will smell just as sweet. At least that's what the IronPigs are saying. The team changed the name of its mascot after learning that some people could find it offensive. WFMZ's Joscelyn Moes reports.

    The first name was barely a day old when the team ... called it out.
    Some say the change was a smart move.
    Others don't understand what was so wrong with it.

    No boar-ing name for this mascot.
    So to find the perfect fit ... the Lehigh Valley IronPigs took suggestions ... thousands of them ... and came up with PorkChop.
    Matt Provence
    PorkChop was a name we liked because it was fun and it was relating to a pig.

    But after learning from some in the community that it could be considered offensive ... the team decided to switch it up.
    Apparently the word is a not-so-commonly used racist term for people of Puerto Rican and Portuguese decent.
    Now ... the new name is Ferrous.
    It's an adjective derived from the Latin word ferrum that means of ... or having to do with ... iron.
    Matt Provence
    I think Ferrous is fairly appropriate.

    Some leaders in the Hispanic community say to name the pig PorkChop wasn't that big of a deal.
    Jose Molina
    We have to thank the organization of the baseball team to be sensitive to everybody but I'm not agreeing on this as a Latino issue.

    But others disagree.
    Local Hispanic Leader Guillermo Lopez was one of several who contacted to IronPigs about the name.
    Guillermo Lopez
    If mama and papa were still alive they'd be a little upset at this.
    Guillermo Lopez
    That was the name that targeted them ... porkchops ... and particularly my father. I heard him talk about how he got called that a whole lot.

    Meantime the 5-year-old Easton girl who picked the name PorkChop will still receive a prize package.
    So will a fan who suggested the name Ferrous.
    The team just hopes the mascot's new name will be a homerun with fans.

    The parents of the little girl who picked the name PorkChop didn't want to go on camera ... but tell us they feel bad if anyone was offended.
    They say the child picked the name because she thought it would be a cute name for the mascot.

    Wow...so calling a pig the name of a food that comes from them and is consumed by millions of Americans is now racist? Wow.

    for real - when i saw the headline on foxnews - I thought Kosher rabbis had to be the complainers.


    mods should change this topic title to "Now 'porkchop' is offensive?"

    Maybe the latino guy's father had sideburns like lamb chops or mutton chops....or he was just a porker.

    or he was caught fucking a pig. or his wife was a pig.

    Well thank God they changed that name. I think I should file a complaint here because the female razorback mascot here is called Pork Chop and I now find it to be offensive to Puerto Ricans.

    I didn't find it offensive before, but now after knowing that it makes someone in the world somewhere feel bad, it offends me and WE NEED CHANGE!

    Now I just have to tell my mother that those fried pork steaks can no longer be called "Pork Chops" in our home. "Mom, could you please pass the pork steaks?" Thats how we now will refer to them so to not offend anyone and STOP THE HATE!

    Oh and one more thing. That sort be fake outrage about non-issues makes me think that terror attacks against our nation may just be justified. Maybe they are right to want to kill us all.

    Now meat is derogatory?

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,314901,00.html

    So now what? Is every restaurant going to be attacked for their menu items? Get over yourselves people! Its not like they were calling the mascot 'wetback'.

    I'm fucking speechless.


    If your racial slur was taken verbatim from a food product, you have absolutely no reason to even be offended/hurt/mentally devastated in the first place.

    So because one guy got teased...admits that nobody else could really give a shit...this word is now a slur. Fucking douche probably deserved every insult and taunt that was ever thrown his way.

    Unless you take the comment as: "If it offended a few, it's a few too many because NOBODY should be offended by the fucking word "porkchop"."
