“Dixie” is another casualty of our politically correct society. The University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) has built the new Vaught-Hemingway football stadium, and they have decided that the old fight song had to go to make things more inclusive for all fans. The powers that be want new traditions to be formed in place of the old, so that all can feel equal, and the focus can be on football, not racism.
- The newly expanded and renovated Vaught-Hemingway Stadium will further highlight our best traditions and create new ones that give the Ole Miss Rebels the best home field advantage in college football.
- “Dixie” is only the latest symbol of Southern heritage at Ole Miss to fall victim to political correctness in recent years.
- Ole Miss also nixed the Colonel Rebel mascot from its games due to similar reasoning.
“In another victory for the forces of political correctness, the University of Mississippi announced Friday that its marching band would no longer play “Dixie” before its football games.”
