'Dixie' offensive
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

A play is canceled at a Salt Lake County high school because one anonymous community member complains ("'All Shook Up' too racy for district; Herriman High show canceled," Tribune, Jan. 3).

But an institution's name ("Dixie") that offends a whole class of people will remain ("Dixie State College keeping its name amid controversy," Tribune, Jan. 19).

How does this make sense?
