Brian Moyer started this petition to Willoughby Eastlake schools and

I have lived in Ohio for 45 years now, and for 45 years my community has been displaying symbols of hate, and thereby teaching tolerance and acceptance of anti-American ideologies of white nationalism/supremacy. 

As recent as 2007 our high schools had/have teachers displaying this hate symbol and teaching revisionist history, lying to children and young  adults that it is and never was a tool of white nationalism/supremacy. Willoughby South High School is still, in 2020, using a mascot of a racist, confederate, slave-owning general. We have misguided and lied to at least 3 generations in our small community, and we lose families every hear because they are being terrorized and intimidated by a small fringe throwback of our community. 

We are not a racist county or state, and the majority of us are tired of allowing our community to be defamed and misrepresented by the racists that are emboldened by the usage of such symbols. We have the ability to make a change. 

We can start by telling and teaching our children the truth. We can remove the last vestiges of the campaign of lies by the Daughters of the Confederacy, and make our community safe, welcome, and open to all Americans no matter where they came from, what they look like, or who they choose to share their bed with. 

Let's make the United States of America, and Lake County and the rest of Ohio, truly united and show the world that Ohio is a leader of America, and cure The Heartland of the cancer that has plagued us for far too long.

Please share this petition, and share stories of families that have moved away from our county, or have experienced racism or racist violence in Lake County, Ohio; or anywhere else in Ohio. 

Here are some suggestions to include in our schools curriculum.
