Imani Rivera started this petition to Tyler I.S.D

This email is a call to action to rename Robert E. Lee high school in Tyler, Texas. Currently protests are happening across the nation in response to the unlawful killings of African Americans in the United States. As such I believe it is inappropriate to continue to allow a confederate soldier be the spearhead for an educational establishment where students of different ethnicities attend. It is perpetuating the notion that black lives are beneath those of white power and it allows racism to flame not only in the school but in our community.  Those in power need to know how damaging it is to your African American students. And should be a precedent for change in East Texas.
