Re: What the hell is wrong with people these days?

December 22, 2021 12:45PM
I'm confused. I'm not understanding why there's a need to change the school's name or mascot. I do understand why actions have been taken by schools, communities, cities and various bodies of government to remove/change names, mascots, statues, plaques, etc when/if it symbolizes hate or it incites attitudes and behavior that belittles, disrespects, and demoralizes a group of people. But I'm not seeing that's the case in a school with the name Wichita Falls High School and the mascot is The Coyotes. I'm not seeing that any insensitivities towards a group of people. What am I missing? If they just want to change it for changes sake... that's just plain wrong. Kind of how I feel about the Rams uniforms Ok, I just digressed... I'm just not seeing any valid reason to change the name or the mascot.

I graduated from high school and went to college in Wichita, Kansas. One of the public high schools was South High. It was built in 1959 and the school teams were called The Colonels. Dixie was played at all their games as the fight song and there were Confederate flags everywhere all the time to let people know they were "the South". Needless to say, there were factions of students who felt it was their duty make Robert E. Lee proud and there was constant friction, fighting, and racial tensions until the early 70's when the Wichita School Board requested that the school change their mascot. Not everyone liked the idea of changing the name, but the school board held fast and they had the support of most parents, students, and the community. The students chose the name Titans and that's been the name ever since.
