Re: “South Burlington School Budget Voted Down for Second Time

It's kind of pathetic that people are getting riled about how the name "is connected to the south" and how "we're hurting people" for keeping the name that although USED to have connections to the confederacy and slavery, NO LONGER have those same connections. I feel the faculty didn't do enough to reinvent the rebel name to be more inclusive and positive (such as the revolution which made America exist in the first place, the underground railroad dedicated to freeing slaves, and the civil rights movement which used peaceful protests to make African rights enforced). Ultimately while the word "rebel" can mean racism to one person, another can actually try to do something that will make BOTH parties happy.
