Re: “South Burlington Man Arraigned in Rebels Stalking Case

The SB folks in the Rebel Alliance are obviously obsessed about preserving their incredibly racist high school mascot, and racist mascot name. Their behavior is ruining the reputation of South Burlington.

These "so called adults" who refer to themselves as the Rebel Alliance should be more concerned about the racism being condoned by this racist name. It is hurting SB's many minority students and families, The folks in the RA should stop chasing their "good old hign school days"...grow up Rebel Alliance !! The Civil War is over and the Rebel lost ! Send the Rebel packing!

This 43 year old's behavior is way over the line..,,sad days in S Burlington.
When will a real leader emerge to shout down the folks fostering racism in SB? Too many folks scared of being defeated at the polls? Sad, very, very sad...,

Re: “Rebels No More: SBHS Student Isaiah Hines on the End of the Rebels Nickname

Isaiah Hines has showed great leadership with the way he has handled this difficult situation.
The Johnny Rebel mascot and name has a terribly racist history in our country; and there is no good reason for this racially charged name to continue in our SB schools.
Mr Hines has done our City, our schools, and our State a great service with his very courageous, and correct position on this very important issue. Thank you sir !!

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

South Burlington has a 50+ year history using the racist Civil War Johnny Reb as its sports mascot and nickname. At the time they embraced this racist character, SB had few, if any, African American residents or athletes . Things have changed in SB, but some residents cling to this very negative history.

SB now has many minority families, and gifted minority students and athletes who have requested that the community drop this racist nickname. Still, some locals cling to this "history" as being more important than the folks who are hurt by this racist figure. Perhaps the members of the so called "Rebel Alliance" should study about why the Civil War was fought; and remember that the rebels lost ! The war is over folks !

Just imagine how an African American athlete feels about playing ball in SB on a team whose name Rebel represents the folks who enslaved his/her ancestors... just imagine that for a few minutes...,
The War is long over...Send the rebel packing...

Re: “He's Back: Peter Clavelle on Bernie, the Mall and Life in Albania

So nice to see these two great people back in Vermont. They are both first class human beings, and I always enjoyed my interactions with them over many years. I hope our paths cross again sometime soon.
