Three female students are suing Yale University and nine of its fraternities, asking a federal court to force fraternities to accept women as members. They accuse Yale and the fraternities of allowing "dangerous environments in which sexual misconduct thrived."

They said fraternity houses dominate a limited social scene around campus, one that needs to be wiped clean of sexual harassment and gender discrimination, reports CBS News' Meg Oliver.

A Dickinson newspaper editorial writer doesn't believe the white boys she has met should be allowed to speak.

https://news.yahoo.com/not-racist-college-student-wrote-op-ed-titled-white-boys-allowed-talk-speaks-221855881.html

It is an op-ed, so it's allowed to be somewhat inflammatory - goes with the territory.

People rightly predicted 2-3 years ago leftist snowflakes wouldn’t stop with the Confederate statues, but would move on to the Founding Fathers..

High school may erase mural of George Washington: ‘traumatizes students’

A Northern California public school district may remove a mural of George Washington from the halls of George Washington High School due to concerns that it’s offensive and demeaning to Native Americans and African-Americans.

The controversy comes after a working group determined the mural, made up of several panels, “traumatizes students and community members.” But advocates for keeping the 83-year-old mural say that removing it ignores the intent of the artist and represents an attempt to erase history.....”

I disagree with this......we need to be reminded that a slave owner was once President of this country. And George Washington was our first President. Yes, our country has warts but it is our HISTORY. We should not white wash it (no pun intended). We should not erase it. We should remember it and learn from it. I really HATE it when anyone on any side tries to bury, erase or change history....that is very dangerous.

The white washing of America's history and our founders makes no sense. I truly don't understand it other.

I had a black guy tell me that he wants the statues to stay up - it reminds him and his family where they've come from. And it reminds whites that they lost. :thumb:

The parents of Riley Howell, one of the UNC-C kids shot and killed this week were high school classmates with my brother. Riley apparently tackled the shooter as he was getting shot and managed to save some lives by giving others time to escape.

It is right out of chapter one in the rulebook for purity movements. I really don’t know why anyone is surprised, really... these things follow a fixed pattern.

SMH. After students pitched a fit over the law dean agreeing to represent Harvey Weinstein, Harvard cans him.

I don't understand why a world-renowned institution that will never be in any danger of losing money from declining enrollment can't just come out and say "get over it, snowflakes".
We get the government we deserve. :nod:
