Re: “'Rebels' Moniker Debated in South Burlington

What a reaction by Seven Days readers!

Maybe I am just lucky that I did not know about this article two weeks ago.

I found some of the comments as hateful as the use of the term "REBELS" at SBHS. Getting rid of the last vintages of the Civil War in South Burlington as nothing to do with being politically correct, being liberal, or having to much times on my hands.

Times have changed. South Carolina finally stopped flying the Confederal Flag at their statehouse. There are probably few schools left in the U. S. that are still clinging onto anything related to the Confederate South.

One last thought. If Vermont had a very large black population and if Vermonters lived through the years of segregation, the term "REBELS" would have been dropped 20 years ago. Actually, it probably would not have even been chosen in 1961.
