Re: “'Rebels' Supporters Win Round in Fight for Vote on Name Change

Yet if the name sounds and feels racist to students of any race why keep it? Is it really grandstanding to try to eliminate racism, racist team names, racist attitudes from a school district? This is a ridiculous claim. Leave this history behind and get over it. Black students should feel welcome in all vermont schools.

Re: “South Burlington Student's Post on 'White Fragility' Goes Viral

Isaac, stay clear and strong. That some white people can't even handle a conversation about this is an example of the anxious fragility The article discusses whether you agree or disagree he with the authors series shouldn't make it so hard to read that you have to attack the author or the poster.. I am white and it seems in my experience but trying to discuss rest of them often brings up anxiety and other white people and makes them feel like someone is trying said they are racist but repulses them and I don't want to be part of that. And then I get stuck there I never got to think about the articles talking about. Sad but too true.

Re: “Fear on the Farm: Trump's Immigration Crackdown Threatens Vermont's Dairy Industry

What is wrong with our priorities? The money spent in trying to catch people here working hard to do jobs that no one else can do should be spent on creating a long-term guest worker program. This would eliminate the concern about workers being undocumented and keep our much needed workers here , hopefully with some protections.

Re: “Burlington High School Students Protest Cuts With ‘For Sale’ Signs

Just one piece of information people seem to forget: our last superintendent lived in Shelburne and 5 out the past 6 superintendents did not live in Burlington.
