Michelle Hernandez Cortez started this petition to Mayor of Pearland

To see that racism is upheld in all sectors of life in Pearland is sickening to say the least. I am calling people everywhere to stand up against this upheaval and glorification of racist symbolism.

I call for the acknowledgement of wrongful actions and hatred this city has shown people of color, and specifically Black people.

I am asking PEARLAND, TEXAS TO CHANGE all racist/street names affiliated and representative of confederacy. The confederacy should NOT be something people grow up thinking is normal, or anything to be proud of. THIS IS NOT OKAY. PEOPLE OF COLOR SHOULD NOT HAVE TO LIVE/GROW UP BEING TOLD THEIR TORTUROUS HISTORY IS SOMEONE'S "CULTURE". THE CONFEDERATE FLAG IS NOT A CULTURE. IT IS RACISM. THE CONFEDERACY IS WHITE SUPREMACY. 

Pearland, Texas is a city that has historically been racist and exemplified bigotry. As someone who grew up in this city, I experienced racism first hand my whole life, and so have many other people of color. The following is a new segment on some of the complaints made by people of Pearland against this discrimination in the education system.
