Mike Francesa named his horse a derogatory name for a Down Syndrome sufferer

Mike Francesa named his horse Mongo Nation. Sam adds, "Mongo -- Derogatory. Someone who suffers from Down's Syndrome (trisomy 21)."

Before “Down’s Syndrome” was called such, people with Down’s syndrome were called “Mongolian idiots” and the syndrome itself was called “mongolism”. This comes from the fact that people thought that Down’s syndrome individuals resembled Mongolians. So next time you feel like offending as many people as possible, be sure and use the term “Mongolian idiot” when referring to people with Down’s syndrome.

Same guy who called mentally ill Brandon Marshall 'crazy' - to his face. The Association for Retarded Citizens of the United States (ARC) & the Association for the Advancement of Blind and Retarded are aware.
