Again people need to know the definition of the word HISTORY. Back in the 30's things were a lot different than today. Our country was at a different place, this happened 19 years before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat.
To now go after Kate Smith and remove her statue, and stop playing her song is disgusting, and very disappointing in the case of the Flyers, bet if Ed Snyder was alive he would have remembered Kate's place in the team history that made him millions.
Season ticket holders should threaten not to renew for next season, especially with the way they have played the past few seasons.
When is this attempted makeover of American history going to end. What happened in the past should be left in the past, even the bad things, as a reminder how much we have moved forward.
Maybe if we started demanding everyone in the hall of fame with a criminal record be stricken from the record books some of the other old news would be more tolerable and considered less racist.
This is nothing new to happen in Philly, they allowed a man's will to be broken who was offering fatherless white boys a free quality education, they change street names that stood since the cities inception and rename them after racial leaders and remove a statue and mural of a past police commissioner and mayor who guided the city in turbulent times all in the name equality.
What's next, we going to rip down the Whitehouse since slaves were used to build it?
