Letter: Lancaster School District needs to evolve with times

Lancaster School District needs to evolve with times

As a white citizen, some might call me paleface and say it’s OK; I have no right to publicly comment on what any other race/ethnic group finds offensive. If a Native American says Redskins is offensive, that’s the end of the discussion. If it was any other entity, there wouldn’t be a conversation.

Some school athletes were interviewed and said the name was a source of pride. Shouldn’t your sportsmanship, teamwork and school records be your source of pride? Not your mascot.

Certainly in our country’s history there have been names, words and actions that were accepted as the norm but eventually changed and evolved for obvious reasons. It’s time for a change in Lancaster.
