This is simple. Some traditions are worth celebrating, but our tradition of treating non-white races like they are subhuman or animals is not. Language matters.

Savannah is a place of learning and the mascot is distracting. People of Savannah need to understand that this is racism to move forward.

The mascot is an insensitive stereotype of Native Americans. There are many changes that need to be made in regards to insensitivity, racism, harassment and bullying. This is a good place to start

The mascot is a racist stereotype that has been used for centuries to justify treating Native Americans as less than human for our convenience. As an alumni, we should do our part to break that cycle.

Ignoring the call for change ignores the painful legacy of the savage stereotype and the experiences of local Indigenous families. Savannah deserves a mascot that reflects its inclusiveness & strength

How many kids will have to have transportation to the other schools. There are many buildings that could be used for pre-kindergarten. Who is paying for this?
