They are getting more and more ridiculous.
Many students from the University of Wisconsin-Madison have decided to take a vote in order to remove a large rock on campus which they have decided is a symbol of racism.
A report from the Wisconsin State Journal stated:
UW-Madison is moving forward on a plan to remove a boulder from Observatory Hill after calls from students of color who see the rock as a painful reminder of the history of racism on campus.
The 70-ton boulder is officially known as Chamberlin Rock in honor of Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president. But the rock was referred to at least once after it was dug out of the hill as a “n***erhead,” a commonly used expression in the 1920s to describe any large dark rock.
The Wisconsin Black Student Union called for the rock’s removal over the summer. President Nalah McWhorter said the rock is a symbol of the daily injustices that students of color face on a predominantly white campus.
McWhorter also faulted the Wisconsin State Journal for printing the vulgarity in a 1925 news article.
Liberals are starting to get out of hand! Apparently a rock is a symbol of racism and therefore needs to be removes. Who knows what concoction their going to come up with next.
