Dear Caddo Parish School Board,

Generation after generation has requested the removal of the purely, racist, Confederate Rebel mascot at North Caddo Magnet High School in Vivian, LA.  This racist, Confederate Rebel mascot began its racist origins with the establishment of North Caddo Magnet High in 1955, but the racist, Confederate Rebel mascot has no place in a government-funded public school with children. 

Generation after generation has asked that the racist, Confederate Rebel mascot be removed from North Caddo Magnet High School as it is a constant reminder of deeply institutionalized racism in the South.  The racist, Confederate Rebel mascot is a constant reminder of the deadly threat to Black students. The racist, Confederate Rebel mascot is a constant reminder of the pain and suffering of racial injustice that Black Americans have endured since being enslaved.     

Generation after generation after generation…  Parents have requested the removal of the racist Rebel mascot from North Caddo Magnet High School.  Their children have requested the removal of the racist, Confederate Rebel mascot.  Their grandchildren have requested the removal of the racist, Confederate Rebel mascot.  When will this racial injustice end?  Blacks have already endured this racist, Confederate Rebel for 50 years.

As former graduates, current students, and friends of North Caddo Magnet High School, we demand that the racist, Confederate Rebel mascot be immediately removed so that this generational battle can finally end the institutionalized racism, deadly threats, pain, and suffering that has incurred at North Caddo Magnet High School since desegregation occurred nearly 50 years ago at this Caddo Parish, Louisiana school.   

Sincerely,

Graduates, Family, and Friends of North Caddo Magnet High School
