you're a hundred percent right but our opinion is what we use when we decide where to go to law school. I don't like the symbol and that's my opinion, I also would not like to be in a place that glorifies a symbol like that. That's why I'm so glad so many current UVA students have spoken out against it. It's just weird to me, I lived in Germany for a few years and they almost act like 1939-45 didn't happen. Besides a few pockets of Neo-nazis you never see the swastika, there is no glorification of a regime that committed unspeakable atrocities, there is no calls for the Third Reich to rise again. Not saying the German mindset is perfect, limiting free speech and censoring books, but they have made a concerted effort to make sure the symbols of an embarrassing period aren't held up for praise.
