    Florida School Named After KKK Grand Wizard Will Get New Name

    After decades of blistering debate about the balance between honoring Southern history and glorifying slavery and white supremacy, the Duval County School Board in Jacksonville, Fla., voted unanimously on Monday to rename Nathan B. Forrest High School.
    I have only one question here. Jacksonville, why did it take this long?

    The obvious choice is obvious.

    They should name it after Braxton Bragg, if they want to meet in the middle.

    Didn't have time to read the article. So what's the new name for Robert Byrd High School going to be?

    Strom Thurmond or Jesse Helms would be appropriate .

    What kills me is the guy leading the fight against the name change was "A black confederate activist". Just when I thought I had seen it all...

    Yeah, that seems appropriate since they were both Democrats when they were in the Klan.

    This is so much crap. What all y'all know about Nathan Bedford Forrest is what you've heard and a paragraph you read somewhere. Nathan Bedford Forrest disbanded the Klan in 1868. Oh, all y'all knew that, right?

    "I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races -- that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races from living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race."
