A high school in the California desert is feeling the heat for having a controversial mascot.
Not redskins. Arabs.
Some people are protesting, but defenders say they are merely celebrating their town's history.

Is the Carter name an asset or a liability?
The 39th President's grandson, State Senator Jason Carter, is running for governor in Georgia. Democrats say he's one of the party's strongest candidates in 2014.
Some even argue the race is now within reach for Democrats.
But will the Carter name help or hurt his candidacy?

(CNN) - President Barack Obama apologized on Thursday to Americans whose insurance plans are being canceled due to the federal health law he championed even though he said repeatedly they could keep their coverage if they liked.
"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," he told NBC News in an exclusive interview.
"We've got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this," he added.
How did a hospital lose track of a patient for two weeks?
That patient's family is finally getting some answers and they are troubling - after the body of 57-year-old Lynne Spaldingwas found in a stairwell at San Francisco General Hospital last month - two weeks after she'd disappeared from her room.
Exactly when and how Spalding Ford died remains a mystery. But more clues are surfacing about her final days:
Spalding Ford, 57, checks into San Francisco General Hospital for a bladder infection.
A hospital employee calls the sheriff's department in the morning and says Spalding Ford has been missing for 40 minutes, San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi said.
The caller also describes the patient as African-American - even though the patient is later described as Asian in a sheriff's department log book. The sheriff's department oversees security on the hospital's campus.
Authorities make a perimeter search of the hospital grounds, but deputies didn't immediately classify the woman as a missing person.
Later that day, evening shift deputies stationed at the hospital didn't get briefed about Spalding Ford from the earlier deputies.
Four days after Spalding Ford's disappearance, the San Francisco Police Department asks the sheriff's department to pull surveillance video to see if there are any images of the patient leaving.
