Nevada on Friday banned schools from using "racially discriminatory mascots."
The new law also bans the use of "sundown sirens," which were once used to kick non-white people out of town, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Even after "sundown town" laws were repealed, some places continued to play the evening sirens.
Steve Sisolak, a Democrat, signed into law on Friday a bill that bans "racially discriminatory mascots" and "sundown sirens," which were once blasted nightly to tell non-white residents to leave town.
The legislation, Assembly Bill 88, prohibits schools and universities from using "any name, logo, mascot, song, or other identifier that is racially discriminatory or contains racially discriminatory language or imagery," according to the bill.
