To save what dignity remains at Ole Miss
ARE WE READY? HELL NO! DAMN THAT! HOTTY TODDY GOSH ALL MIGHTY WHO THE HELL ARE WE????? NOT THE OLE MISS BLACK BEAR!
The NCAA and Ole Miss athletics removed our beloved mascot Colonel Reb on the grounds that i...t was racist to the African Americans in 2003..THE IMAGE OF COLONEL REB WAS INSPIRED BY AN AFRICAN AMERICAN!! This man's name was Jim Ivy, who in the 1930's attended almost all Ole Miss athletics. His game day tuxedo, wide brimmed hat, and cane inspired our team mascot. Our Colonel Rebel is no more racist than Colonel Sanders of KFC. They forcefully removed our history, heritage, and pride. We've been without the Colonel for 7 years now, and as much as I've missed seeing him on the field, I had finally accepted that he was gone. But now they have replaced the Colonel with a Black Bear? This is insulting. We are now the joke of the SEC. As much as I would love to have the Colonel come back, I dont think 500 million voices could make that happen. So just leave us without a mascot. Just let us be the Ole Miss Rebels. I hope this petition will inspire everyone out there to boycott this Black Bear by purchasing NONE of the products that will soon be coming out. Join this cause, and voice your opinion. Nothing will ever get done if we do not rise together and take a stand.
