Salutations. Our group has a question about our team name. Our team name is 4 NIGS AND A BLACK GUY.
Now obviously (duh) this name comes from the National Institute of Geological Sciences , of which four of our esteemed members strive to study at in another lifetime, and a close friend who happens to be very proud of his African American ethnicity.
However it has come to my attention that this team name has been and will in the future be misconstrued for a racial epithet. And as a striving N.I.G., I am saddened.
I am here to ask, as a top 32 team, of the consequences for our eligibility in light of this supposedly offensive team name. I would greatly appreciate if a Riot staff would clarify the stance taken against Geologists and their team names.
