Anon ymous started this petition to Bubba Winningham and

I'd like the Algood Middle School mascot to change!!! Bubba Winningham claims to be anti racist, but when the mascot of his school is brought up, it's a different story. 

"Redskin is a slang term for Native Americans in the United States and First Nations in Canada. The term "redskin" underwent pejoration through the 19th to early 20th centuries and in contemporary dictionaries of American English it is labeled "usually offensive", "disparaging", "insulting", or "taboo". Now, in the AMS dress code it states, "no racist overtones/hate themes or symbols". Now that we've gotten that out of the way, Redskin is defined by Oxford as "dated" or "offensive" you can also find this term in the long list of racial slurs on Wikipedia, and articles by credible sources that explain the racist backstory of this slur. Such as the Washington post and Time Magazine. This has been brought to their attention by multiple students, such as myself and they refuse to change it because "it's always been that way". Before every volleyball game the Lady Redskins chant "Redskins on 3, 1,2,3 Redskins" and then they do an Indian war cry while the parents who've never seen this watch in horror but say nothing about it because they fear backlash.
