    Another Swipe on American History and Southern Pride


    Richmond school named after confederate general will be changed to Barack Obama Elementary

    A predominantly African-American elementary school in Richmond, Virginia, is dropping its confederate general name and will soon be known as Barack Obama Elementary.
    The Richmond Public School Board voted 6-1 Monday to change the name of J.E.B Stuart Elementary School, school district spokeswoman Kenita Bowers told ABC News.
    But the planning for ditching the school's name goes back nearly a year to last summer's rally over a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Virginia, she said. The rally turned deadly and sparked a renewed push to remove Confederate symbols across the nation, from New Orleans to Maryland to New York.
    (MORE:110 Confederate tributes removed since 2015 mass killing but more than 1,700 remain, report says)
    (MORE:Recent flashpoints in the controversy over Confederate symbols)
    J.E.B Stuart was a prominent cavalry commander and major general with the Confederate Army.
    In Richmond, J.E.B Stuart Elementary had opened its doors in 1922 with its confederate general name. But now, 91.7 percent of the elementary school's students are African-American.
    After Charlottesville, Bowers said, "the community called into question whether this needs to be changed" so the school is "named for someone positive who probably represents the community in a more all-inclusive way."

    Richmond Schools Superintendent Jason Kamras agreed that a change should be made and the school board moved forward with the process, Bowers said. Many names were considered and eventually the list was narrowed to three: Wishtree (a name chosen by the young students), Northside and Barack Obama, she said.
    The superintendent selected Obama and took that name to the school board for a vote, Bowers said.
    "He just felt very strongly about utilizing this opportunity to rename the school for a very prominent African-American who has made history and also resonates with the students," she said.
    Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney approved of the decision, tweeting, "Thank you Richmond City School Board for re-naming JEB Stuart Elementary, Barack Obama Elementary. A leader we can be proud of!"
    There is no set date for when the name change will go into effect but, Bowers said, it could be as early as the next school year.

    to hell with changing the name, just close the school and tear it down... if they want to name a school after Obozo, then solicit him for the funds to BUILD it, then they can name it after him, or moochie or whoever..... this "rewriting of history" is really getting out of hand, the voters need to vote every politician that is doing this stuff out of office.....

    Billy Mongoose, think about this. It makes perfect sense that a bunch of racist's would want to change the name of the school to honor the WORST President this country has ever had. They don't like it that the school was named after a honorable Southern General, but it's fine to re-name the school after a disgraceful President. Who is a liar, a cheat, prejudice, as well as a muslim racist..it makes perfect sense...if you are a racist!!!

    Ed, you're right, I'd say that it is going to be hilarious to watch the "mainstream media" IMPLODE..... their hatred of TRUMP is so deep, they cannot abide the thought that he just might shape the direction of the SCOUS for the next two or three decades........ as for "standards" on the left, the ONLY "STANDARD" they will ever see is printed on the back of a TOILET......

    woman has a 4.5 million dollar mansion that IS NOT in her district, what do you think???? The TAXPAYER has been footing the bill for her and every other congressman starting the day they were elected..... Wouldn't YOU like to have a job where YOU get to vote yourself a raise anytime, have everything you buy paid for on the "expense account", get to take off as much as you want, anytime you want, and get all expense paid vacations all around the world several times a year????? The day congress figured out how to pay itself and give itself raises was the day the Republic became terminally ill........
