EVADALE, Texas (AP) — Some Texas school districts have come under scrutiny for having Confederate symbols that backers say stand for tradition but critics say support racism.

The president of the Fort Worth chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference wants all Confederate symbols taken down. The Rev. Kyev Tatum says the symbols have a negative impact on children of color.

Hundreds of people rallied Sunday to keep the rebel name associated with Richland High School in North Richland Hills.

The crest for schools in the Southeast Texas town of Evadale has a Confederate flag and the words “Rebel Pride.”

Superintendent Gary Fairchild said last month that the crest is part of the school’s history and won’t be changed unless the district gets complaints. Fairchild didn’t immediately return a message for comment Monday.
