The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 81: Anti-Confederate Movement Expands to Redskins and Christopher Columbus

From the October 12, 2015, Google Alerts fro Confederate.

California to ban 'Redskins' for school sports, keep Confederate building names.  Can name parks and building for Confederate heroes.  Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill to eliminate Redskins" name, but no the one about removing Confederate names.  He said the removal of the names was overdue, though.  (Win)

As Confederate Flags Fall, Columbus Statues Stand Tall.  (Draw)  Last year the Lancaster, New York, school board removed "Redskins" from its high school sports teams.  But the Columbus statue in Buffalo was recently vandalized.

Like the anti-Confederate movement, the anti-Redskin movement has  been underway for quite some time.  Also, many Indians do not like Christopher Columbus for obvious reasons.  I can agree with them.

Looks like there is now some carryover from all this Confederate hate.
