Wow... I guess that was the best of the finalists, but, ugh...

My favorite quote from the article:

"I just think it's kind of dumb. Why is our mascot a bear when we're the Rebels? It doesn't make a lot of sense to me. That's why I didn't vote. None of the three choices made any sense," Garth said.

I don't know why they got rid of Colonel Reb, probably some racism BS. Get over it people, slavery ended almost 150 years ago. WAAAHHHHH We were slaves, so you can't use a rebel for your mascot. (Why is it ok for Kentucky Fried Chicken to use the same mascot?) WAAAAHHHH We were slaves so you can't say the N word. (anyone said this in public lately, even with an A at the end instead of an ER?) WAAAHHHH We were slaves so you need to pay my bills while I have 15 kids by 14 different men (anyone seen Blind Side lately?).

Seriously, at some point you realize you're lucky to be in America and you take responsibility for your own life...I am half Cherokee Indian (excuse me, Native American...lol), you don't hear me crying about it.
