So Jo Jo; Did you go to Univ. of Miss? If not then all you have is an opinion, not a vote. They can do what they want, when UGA or GT changes thier mascot I'll have my say since I have degrees from both.
What's with hanging on to old symbols like they define who and what a person is? If you want to practice beliefs and stand up for them what a university votes to do will not affect you.
Gotta love all the die hard fans who think supporting Wal Mart by buying collegiate stuff is more important then actually attending the school or educating our children!
Hey glad you got to tell us all that you have degrees from UGA and GT . Too bad they didn't teach your stupid a s s how to spell while you were there.(thier)Yes Mr. Educated look up you spelled it wrong. Everyone has an opinion and I have the right to voice mine. I hope your not educating any children since you can't spell correctly. LMAO

There is a move to sanitize history in the school systems to make the event politically correct. When we confronted our child's teacher about twisted history lessons, we were told that she knew it was incorrect but that was the way she was instructed to teach it.No discussion.

An old white general is still selling Fried Chicken. Those stores have not been asked to change it's mascot. Maybe I missed it somewhere, but when did it become against the law to hurt peoples feelings? If that is against the law, where do I sign up? Alot of people have hurt my feelings.

Thanks for pointing that fact out "angela". As for the Fried Chicken thing....that represents food, a favorite for some. If a macot intimidates or hurts someones feelings, I would say....they have serious issues that require mental help.

Oh, I'd say around the time the "Christian" meddlers first appeared. There's no difference in them and the liberal multi-culti "diversity" types. Both want to force you how to think but won't contribute one thin dime towards your survival.

Just wait for a churchie to shout me down libtard style for proof. Or look for evidence of a bipolar imbecile who mashed the smilies obsessively.

Nice try, but you didn't answer the question. Did you attend / graduate from Univ. of Miss. or are you just running your mouth?

My spelling skills are fine, As for typing skills I've never aspired to be a secratary - always planned on having one, which I do - LMAO!
