Face it guys, when you say things like, "the south shall rise again", and you wave a flag with "OLE MASSA COLONEL REB", it just says 1850 all over again. Now tell me, who really wants to go back to such a terrible time? Go ahead and be the Ole Miss Tigers or Lions etc, and everyone will be happy. This mascot is casting a negative light on Mississippi.

Who's the loser? I'm not losing my mascot name, you are. Oh Yeah!! always use the upper case when spelling "God". Also, work on correct punctuation. Did you learn that at "OLE MISS"

You can fuss throw racial insults, when its all said and done "ITS GONE" I think its sad , that we think we can erase history and tradition because of the content.

regardless its white history and black history pertaining to the old south. And regardless of the circumstances as an african american its still our history too.

Its an insult to our african american ancestors that lived in that period that suffered and prospered to destroy any symbol that refects that time period.

The old south is Black history too!!!!!!!!!!

Fair is apparently for whites to constantly be under attack. I just can't figure out
why we allow this.

When they did away with the Indians at Arkansas State University I decided to never support ASU again. Not enough others did so our Indians are gone. I sure the same thing will happen at Ole Miss too. Too bad.

Well I don't know about you, but "white history month" lasted for 12 years for me. I can tell you all about Henry VIII, Rome, King Ferdinand of Spain, but I had to learn about Black history on my own, or learn about MLK for one month out of the year.
The winners get to write history. It was not us.
And hey, segregation wasn't fair either.

Truth be told, I could really care less about the Ole Miss rebel. I got 20 other things on my plate to be concerned about.

And no idiots, none of them have to do with child support or a pending court case.

I hope the University loses all there big donations,and I hope no one buys merchandise from any store that promotes the new Mascot.
This is no more than political correctness out of control,the Colonel Reb figure is no more offensive than the man in the moon.
