It seems I can use rm to remove a file but not rm -r to remove a folder

The following is what shows on the terminal:

Julianna-Computer-2:Desktop julianna$ ls julianna-website test medals test-medals Julianna-Computer-2:Desktop julianna$ rm -r test-medals override r--r--r-- julianna/staff for test-medals/.git/objects/04/aaea8a61b3d3732d32792a8331125c4b062a84?
