We the current and former students, parents and grandparents of Barnstable High School  are petitioning  the Barnstable School Committee to rescind their decision to remove the Red Raider Mascot.  We the majority of the town residents  past and present  believe the decision that was made violated the open meeting law of the commonwealth of Massachusetts  and should be held as  void.  This decision is not in the best interests of the town or its students.    We the people of the town of Barnstable believe the Red Raider mascot is a proud part of our heritage and believe the motion to remove the mascot is racist by removing the depiction of a proud native american. That imany Native American  Barnstable  Red Raiders   have proudly displayed  and worn our mascot and were not consulted on their opinions or feelings.We believe that the removal of the mascot was discrimination  and are requesting that the mascot be left in place.
