At Wayzata Central Middle School, the approximately 300 students in each grade are grouped into "teams" for administrative and logistical purposes. Until this year, each team was named for one of the Wayzata district colors: blue, gold, and white.
This year, I was surprised to hear from one of my seventh grade son's friends that the White Team was renamed the Silver Team. Why? "The name 'White Team' was racist," he said.
Be advised that the color white is now politically incorrect.
