Debate gets heated over high school's Confederate name

“If the school was named after the Golden State killer, wouldn’t you want to change it?” These students and alumni are fighting to remove the name of Confederate general Robert E. Lee from their high school...

    Don't be ridiculous. Robert E. Lee was a fearless soldier for America. Don't be stupid.

    I could care less about the name of 1 school....my question is where were all these people 10 years ago? Why is it just now all of a sudden a problem? If you didnt complain before, dont talk now. Dont jump on the bandwagon. If you were this passionate about it, you should have spoken up long before now.

    I love the “recycle your year books” line. Classic.

    If Robert Lee came back today he would most probably agree with the students since he did state after he died he did not want statues put up with his name on it . And for both the Confederate and battle flags be put away and not flown for people to see . When the Confederate states lost the civil war.

    Of course her names KAREN Lee! So what she's saying, is if black people hadn't sold their own, this wouldn't have happened!? How stupid are they? With that logic, you can't blame the "John's" for human trafficking, it's all the pimps fault. Oh my gosh, the insanity! 😤😠

    , thank you for bringing awareness to this. In the midst of these meetings...after I recorded them & they went viral...Robert E Lee HS removed me from teaching & placed me under investigation after I refused to take down a Black lives matter sign that hung above my classroom. Our kids deserve so much better💔 https://www.npr.org/2021/04/30/992038052/blm-and-teacher-s-free-speech

    It’s so embarrassing. I even tried to vote as a staff member of the district and was denied. It’s nothing but old white alumnus with yearbooks. Who probably haven’t been in the neighborhood in 40 years. One drive from Gainesville to vote.

    The Confederates were traitors, who tried to divide the United States, within 100 years of the Revolutionary War, that made us a country! They committed atrocities, owned & abused black bodies, & even asked for help from the King of England 🇬🇧. They were ready to destroy EVERYTHING that made us America, for money 💰 💰💰💰 That's it!! Even the Nazi's modeled themselves after the traitorous, rebel, Confederates. No more!!!

    Why not build a great beautiful wall (one without big gaps like Donalds🤣) around the school and let the racists stay in there all by them lonesome. They can keep the name.🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
