Change Ramay Indian's Mascot Name

This petition had 523 supporters

Aerilynn is doing a really brave thing. ♥️She made this petition and will be asking her fellow students to sign it. She feels like the name of her school mascot is racist, derogatory, and stereotyping a whole race of people. She has native blood and she is feeling it burn. She's already getting some heavy pushback, but she is wanting to move forward. Ramay Jr High has had the Indians as a mascot since 1966. The rival Jr High in Fayetteville's mascot is the Cowboys. The cowboys and Indians are perpetually pitted against one another. Native American students are forced to dwell on that bitter history and what it means. Please stand with her. If you have gone to Ramay, have children that go to Ramay, or will in the future, please stand with her -- teach your children. Sign this to support her, now. Talk about this. Let people know that this is not something that we should now or ever again be okay with.
