It might not be all-right, but you cannot rewrite history to suit the change in attitudes of the times (eg the name of the mascot of 617Sqn) These things happened, they are history.

It isn't acceptable today to objectify women (or men) nor is it right to use racial stereotypes. But if we don't remember the lessons we have learned from the emancipation of those previously oppressed then what have we really learned?

Just because something was done in the past doesn't mean it shouldn't be remembered - how else do we learn from our mistakes?
