Opinion "Racist Symbols"
Opinion "Racist Symbols"
A Collegian editorial arguing that many Americans are offended by the Confederate flag and the song "Dixie," since both are symbols of bigotry and racism. During this time, the University of Richmond band would carry the Confederate flag during sporting events and play "Dixie" so often that it became the unofficial theme song for the university. The editorial argues that this ritual is inappropriate, especially for a group that is supposed to represent the university. The editorial called for the band to find a different song to play and for the university to "erase its all-white 'Southern' image." The piece is accompanied by a cartoon, featuring a window. The blind of the window is rolling up, and the blind features a Confederate flag and reads "UofR All White Image." As the blind rolls up, the window displays a brick wall with another Confederate flag and reads "Welcome to Richmond VA."
