Re: “'Rebels' Yell: Protests Build Over South Burlington's Mascot Change

Maybe "Rebels" wasn't about the Confederacy, but South Burlingtonites then adopted a Southern colonel mascot and the Confederate battle flag and made it about the Confederacy.
Plenty of colleges were "Redmen" simply because they wore red uniforms (Carthage, St. John's, RMC-Canada, UMass, Ripon). Some later adopted mascots that made the name all about Indians, and thus were complicit in the criticism aimed at them.
