"On Nov. 3, the Duval County School Board voted 5 to 2 against changing the name. The five members who voted to keep the name were white. The two who voted against it were the board's only black members."

Well that "Yes, we can" zeitgeist didn't last long.

He was also a civil war hero... for the south. He was a former slave trader. He hated black people. The school was named after him to spite black people after the integration of public schools back in the 50's.

He's probably shitting in his grave knowing there's "dem neggras" playing for his namesake's football team and getting an education.

Who gives a shit anyway; Forrest Gump was named after the same guy and look at all he did for America and history.

^I was waiting for someone to mention Forrest Gump. Anyway, I figured this story was open and shut. It's fucked up but in the end the school will keep its namesake. Whitey wins.

Why does anyone want to keep the name at all?
TwoFacedTanner
You're absolutely right.
Why would they want to keep that name.

We shouldn't name anything after Southern Civil War heroes and military leaders.
They should rename it after black historical figure.

I doubt they named the school after him in honor of his Klan duties.
They most likely named it after him because of his actions in the Civil War.

Thats why they'd want it named that.
Its why other schools are named after other high ranking officers during the Civil War.

Oh, so it's not named after him becuase he was a slave trader or the founder of the Ku Klux Klan, it's becuase he fought so bravely to keep blacks as slaves? How is this diffrent in the slightest?

He was fighting for his own ideals, for him it was the right way of life, and he fought for it. What counts here is not what he was fighting for, but how he was fighting. Cause it's not the right side that always wins, it's the winning side that comes off as the right one. And just so happened that Forrest was on the losing side, doesn't mean he's any worse than the generals on the winning side.

Well, let's not get into what is good and what is evil... what is right, and what is wrong. Such words are better paired with religion and if argued by secular individuals the lines become hazy. Therefore, most meaning is lost as words themselves are only assigned definition by morphemes. That school could have its whole history re-written and years later no one will know that it stood for what history calls a racist xenophobic zealot.

And you dont think there are other ways to do that. other than glorify him, ie, put a picture of Obama in the white house. After a while, people would forget who the guy is in the first place, so it won't keep anyone from repeating the past.

A nice sentiment, but I've never been one for never forgetting. Never forgiving, it seems to me, makes more sense -- we've always remembered and are destined to repeat our mistakes in spite of that, so why continue with such a charade?

They pretty well are. Forget the past and you're doomed to repeat it. But to most young people that means similar scenarios are OK; by some token Iraq is unlike imperial or religious wars that preceded it (take your pick, I'm not arguing Iraq itt), different standards are applied to America than to Britain 100 years ago, or Germany 60 (again, draw what you will from that, I'm not arguing how like or unlike America is to or from either, the point is the standards are different). The popular understanding of social and international history is near-useless in policy-making, formation of opinions or prevention of tragedy.

Alright, can't argue much about the situation in the US as I haven't studied about it's history or present, as I supposed you had, but at least you can keep the name as a memory of an outstanding warrior, no matter what side he was on, rather than something to keep history from repeating itself.

I wouldnt say they were warriors as they never stepped foot on the battlefield in the war they started.
Sure, Hitler fought in WWI, but he was a shitty soldier from what we know.

Where as the officers in the Civil War fought with their men.

Now you're changing it from "Outstanding warrior" to "Good strategist."
Sure people loved them some Hitler, and some Stalin.

And sure, NBF probably, erm, most likely terrorized blacks, but comparing him to Hitler and Stalin is wrong. He never murdered million of people like they did.

I just feel changing the name because of modern day political correctness is bullshit.
Marneyo Juano
exactly...it's getting all about political correctness, and the minorities are starting to get more power than the majority and everyone is acting like it's alright...
Also, Hitler and Stalin were the ones who brainwashed millions of people into their ideology, and led to war/mass murder. Naming a school after them is completely different than naming a school after a good warrior who fought on the field for what he believed in/was told to fight for.

How the fuck do you even know he was a good warrior? Do you even know the slightest detail about him other than that he fought to keep slavery, and was an honourary KKK grand wizard?

His legacy in warfare appears to be, and I quote: "git thar fastest with the most men" and "war means fightin and fightin means killin".

He was hardly "following orders", or even fighting for his beliefs, though he did believe "niggers" ought to be "put back in their place". No, essentially he enlisted to help kill people and protect the massive fortune he had amassed by means of slave trading and gambling.

He was one of the greatest strategists in the American civil war, but he still lost because he overstretched himself, illusions of grandeur and over-belief in his own abilities and destiny the cause.

Hitler and his generals were the greatest strategists in the history of modern warfare. They lost because of over-belief in their own abilities and resulting illusions of grandeur.

Are we to suggest to children that ability supercedes what it's used for? That if you're good enough at something, you needn't control it with responsibility? That using what they've learned to kill and maim is not only excusable, but will lead to them becoming immortalised and praised for all time? That "following orders" is a reasonable excuse!?

Try reading a little before blindly condemning.

I kinda laughed about the reactions of this schools action, but I also wouldn't change the name. Just because I am against namechanging and especially buildings. The founders of this school adored this Forrest guy and therefor it should keep the name. The fact that more than half the school is black makes it even better. That just shows that the status that those Confederates had, is now nothing more than a memory. Sure some people think he was a hero or something and there are some people that disagree with that, but is that really the point of discussion here? Maybe the school's name is known around a large area and if they use a new name, they need to do a lot of promotion to get known like they now do. This also could be the reason.
And ofcourse Forrest fought himself and Hitler and Stalin didn't, Forrest agreed a field with the North and there they'd fight, to lead his men, he must be there himself or else he couldn't do shit. Hitler and Stalin lead their men on a much larger scale, a new era and modern weapons. They had their officers to lead on the field and Hitler and Stalin saw everything much bigger.

Stalin fought for his beliefs just like Bush fought in Iraq. Either of them took any part in any actual battle except for throwing orders. It was all up to the troops and commanders to fight on the field and risk their lives for what their leader believed in. Forrest was one of those people ON THE FIELD, making the strategies and leading his men to battle, while Stalin and whatever other examples you give, sat on their asses far away from the front, waiting for the results of those battles.

You're absolutely right.
Why would they want to keep that name.

We shouldn't name anything after Southern Civil War heroes and military leaders.
They should rename it after black historical figure.

I doubt they named the school after him in honor of his Klan duties.
They most likely named it after him because of his actions in the Civil War.

Thats why they'd want it named that.
Its why other schools are named after other high ranking officers during the Civil War.


So, it shouldn't be named after a white dude but after a black dude? Why is that? It's always the same story, the blacks love to see racism in every action, while if a white guy try to say a black dude was racist with him he's the one being racist!
The Civil War was fought centuries ago, no one living today fought it... I mean, it's time to get over this but my great grand father was a slave, I want my rights stuff... There'll be a Black guy in the office for the next four years (I hope he stays there for 4 years)... Can't you black people see that the majority of racism is created by you? You always try to be seem as the ones being harased, but hey! Wake up! It's the 21st century, stop being sorry for your relatives you didn't even met and try being normal citizen... You are not an African-American... You were born in the US you are an American, period.
ok... time for you to start calling me names, I know this post won't pass without someone trying to prove me wrong. I don't care, I have my opinion and no one is changing it... And before you call me racist (I know someone will at least think about it), let me tell you, I have black friends, I have no problems with black people, I just hate when they try to show themselves as poor suffering people...
Grow up!

First of all... So? It's a building for godsake! It doesn't mean the white people inside it are like murdering blacks and making bonefires while wearing white hoods...

You're absolutely right.
Why would they want to keep that name.

We shouldn't name anything after Southern Civil War heroes and military leaders.
They should rename it after black historical figure.

I doubt they named the school after him in honor of his Klan duties.
They most likely named it after him because of his actions in the Civil War.

Thats why they'd want it named that.
Its why other schools are named after other high ranking officers during the Civil War.


So, it shouldn't be named after a white dude but after a black dude? Why is that? It's always the same story, the blacks love to see racism in every action, while if a white guy try to say a black dude was racist with him he's the one being racist!
The Civil War was fought centuries ago, no one living today fought it... I mean, it's time to get over this but my great grand father was a slave, I want my rights stuff... There'll be a Black guy in the office for the next four years (I hope he stays there for 4 years)... Can't you black people see that the majority of racism is created by you? You always try to be seem as the ones being harased, but hey! Wake up! It's the 21st century, stop being sorry for your relatives you didn't even met and try being normal citizen... You are not an African-American... You were born in the US you are an American, period.
ok... time for you to start calling me names, I know this post won't pass without someone trying to prove me wrong. I don't care, I have my opinion and no one is changing it... And before you call me racist (I know someone will at least think about it), let me tell you, I have black friends, I have no problems with black people, I just hate when they try to show themselves as poor suffering people...
Grow up!

srry if I got repetitive up there...
You're really not entering into this whole political debating forum bit with the right spirit...

Exactly, cause doing otherwise would be racist and ignorant.

exactly...it's getting all about political correctness, and the minorities are starting to get more power than the majority and everyone is acting like it's alright...



exactly. i've never met a equal rights activist who wants equal power. they want all the power for their people (whoever they may be, in this case blacks) and they still act like they're fighting for equality. and whats more, when they speak up for equal rights, they're hailed as heroes, but when a white person sticks up for whitness, he's baranded a racist.

You mean you don't want equal rights? ...
