In the wake of widespread protests against police brutality following the death of George Floyd, racism is a topic that is dominating headlines throughout the United States. One University of Cincinnati student is taking the opportunity to try and get former Cincinnati Reds owner Marge Schott's name off of the baseball team's stadium.

Sophomore outfielder Jordan Ramey started the petition on Schott has a a well-documented track record of using racial slurs and anti-semitic statements while she was alive. 

"As a community of former and current players, staff, students, alums, and Cincinnatians alike, We will not be promoting her, or her legacy any longer," Ramey wrote on the petition. "We demand change for the betterment of society, and to push the values that represent what we believe in as a community."

There are currently over 5,800 signatures to get Schott's name removed from the Cincinnati stadium. It was named after her following a $2 million donation to the University of Cincinnati's athletic department back in 2006.

Former Red Sox star Kevin Youkilis is one of many famous Cincy alum that want the stadium name changed.

In 1993, Schott was suspended from the day-to-day operations of the Reds for a full year and fined $25,000 after it was found that she used racial slurs. At the time, Bud Selig said that Schott used "the most base and demeaning type of racial and ethnic stereotyping."

She was also accused of calling both Eric Davis and Dave Parker, former Reds outfielders, "million-dollar N-words," openly talked about supporting Adolf Hitler and used ethnic slurs to describe Japanese people, according to Fox News.

Regardless of how many signatures the petition gets, it's unclear if the school has agreed to or will agree to change the name of the stadium.
