Sad.
Quit reading the posts if you are so tore up over it. You do have that right...

I grow tired of hearing about minority this or minority that.
This is the United States of America. Many different people came here from many different places around the world.

Who gives a poop whether they are white, black, red, brown, purple, or whatever else you want to put in there, if they or their forefathers and foremothers did the legal thing, they are Americans. Therefore, they should be ready able and will to defend the American ways and traditions.
That means learning our language, our customs, and our society laws. And to quit screaming about minority.

When we leave the US for travel or even a permanent move, we should take it upon ourselves to learn those same things as well.
I've had it with having to "bend" to meet the whiners who think they are above what has been happening for over 220 years.

It's a shame you have to kiss butts and suck up to be an elected official in any capacity, otherwise the USA would be a much better place to live in.

Minority... one word that destroys a great nation.

It was Punjab (again) that decided to twist statements using/inserting the word "hate" to create racism. He is very good at this. He does it in order to BAN people from message boards. For example, if someone wants to change the mascot, then Punjab spins it as "hate" and sends the poster to the Topix FA to get them banned.

I said:
I think the mascot should be changed from a Dachshund to a Chihuahua reflecting the change in the community. Frankfort is over 50% hispanic, so the mascot should change.

Then you, Punjab said: "Your general bigotry is noted. Now please go back to Illinois".

I made a statement of my thoughts. Then you called me a bigot!! Farmer Joe is right!!! You turn every issue into "hate" when it's not. Joe says, you do it to ban people, I think he is right.

Again Angela, please provide a list of those people who I have reported to Topix and are now banned. Thank you.

Why would a Chihuahua be a better FHS mascot than a Dachshund? How exactly did a Dachshund represent the racial majority of the city before the growth of the Hispanic population?

What is wrong with a Chihuahua? Reflects a change in the population to more than 50% hispanic. Why did you call me a BIGOT? Why do you run from this question?

What is wrong with keeping the tradition the same? Some of us think it's neat that we went there and now our kids are there and it's the same name and mascot. Somewhere above in another response, there were 3 generations attended.

50 percent of the population is not Hispanic.

I have looked at several of these posts and also wonder WHY Punjab used the term bigot? This (above) is NOT a statement that would warrent such language. Is Punjab trying to brand people wrongfully?

Poopjab just likes twisting things and playing the race card. I for one do not think the mascot should be changed regardless of what the racial demographics are for the city , however i do support Angela's right to voice her concern and her opinion. The problem with Poopjab is he/she can't stand to listen to the opinions of others.

Is the only reason you want to change the FHS mascot to a Chihuahua is due to Frankfort's Hispanic population? What would your choice for mascot be if instead of Hispanic the population was Asian? How about African-American? Y

Your connection of a Chihuahua to a growing population of Americans who just happen to be of Hispanic descent is bigoted and small minded.

I called you a bigot 'Angela' because IMHO you are one, and your statements help to prove it. Happy now?

"Is Punjab trying to brand people wrongfully"?

Yes Punjab is!!! He likes to throw the word bigot around when he disagrees with some people. Then he tries to get them banned.

When my parents went to school at Frankfort night school, the mascot was a Falcon. Not a dachshund. I am only in my 20's and remember my mother talking about it several times. I don't see a big deal in changing the mascot whatsoever other then the fact that why another dog? Lets try something different like we had this time around. Also, not many people know this but, a lot of Hispanics speak fluently in Spanish BUT can NOT right their own language properly into sentences. I feel that everyone is correct about them having to learn English period point blank because that is the main language people use. It is VERY annoying trying to go and stand in line with people speaking Spanish loud and clear in front or behind you not knowing what they r saying and for all you know it IS about you... But who gives a damn? You could look over at your buddy and be in the exact same boat telling him in English they are damn idiots and ridiculously annoying and them not have a CLUE what you just said about them. To each his own. Who cares? You're in line to purchase something, not make friends right?:)

Actually, since the hispanic population is increasing, and within 10 years will be the majority in the US, then maybe this is NOT a bad idea. This way people can communicate with their leaders in government.

I went to Frankfort Schools and the Falcon was the mascot for Frankfort Junior High which at the time I attended was 7th and 8th grade and was located where the jail is now. As far as changing the mascot I don't understand the purpose behind it? Alot of generations that attended Frankfort are still around and I can't imagine them being okay with the change. Leave things alone and move on to another topic.
