Dixie State College: Take the word "Dixie" out.

Dixie State College is soon to become Dixie State University. however the word Dixie is strongly connected to the racist south and slavery. Over the years, the college has changed their mascot from the Rebels to the more appropriate Red Storm. However, the college has a racist history, some examples being the use of black face and the use of the Dixie Rebel as a mascot. The school needs to let go of that history as they become a university and become more accepting and diverse. Thus they need to take the racist "Dixie" out of the name of the school.
