Title

Article "Collegian Forum: A Reminder"

Description

The opinion piece "Collegian Forum," argues that the song "Dixie" had not been used as a racist symbol at the University of Richmond and that the black students should not take too much offense towards this song. "The song 'Dixie' should not be banned or restrained; it should be forgotten." The article acknowledges that the song could be seen as offensive to black people. However the author also states, "I can understand how some people might see this as a narrow outlook on the part of the blacks."
