The Duval County, FL school board voted Monday not to change the name of Nathan Bedford Forrest High School, despite Forrest’s status as Confederate general and KKK leader. Defeated 5-2, only the board’s two black members cast votes to change the name.

Incidentally, Forrest High School has also received two consecutive F grades on state assessments. Perhaps the specter of vicious, ignorant racism is stunting the student body?
