WILLOUGHBY, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio high school is getting rid of its Confederate mascot in the wake of a deadly car attack at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend.

Superintendent Steve Thompson said Thursday that Willoughby South High School will drop its "Rebel" mascot — a man dressed in a gray Confederate military outfit — but keep the name. Thompson said he made the decision to support the school's diverse student body.

"The Civil War was part of the history of the American story and that's not going anywhere, but how we view it sometimes changes," Thompson said. "We thought it was the right thing to do."

Just the mascot goes, they will still be called the Rebels and wear gray and blue.

The new mascot?
Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude. In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side.
