    black fella like doing gymnastics, hangs up some loops and trapezes and shit, now its racist

    https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/nooses-oakland-park-exercise-aids-man-71314468

    article:

    officials must “start with the assumption that these are hate crimes.” However, the mayor and Nicholas Williams, the city’s director of parks recreation, also said it didn’t matter whether the ropes were meant to send a racist message.

    “Intentions don’t matter when it comes to terrorizing the public,” Schaaf said. “It is incumbent on all of us to know the actual history of racial violence, of terrorism, that a noose represents and that we as a city must remove these terrorizing symbols from the public view.”

    “The symbolism of the rope hanging in the tree is malicious regardless of intent. It’s evil, and it symbolizes hatred,” Williams said.


    so this guy has like a pipe attached to ropes so he can do pullups and shit, now its a hate symbol.

    they actually said "Intentions don’t matter "

    thats the only thing that matters!

    We had the President of Nicholls State in my TV station for a long interview the other day. He said they will be taking down all street signs on campus (all named after antebellum plantations) except for where it would cause a problem for the 9-1-1 system. He said "no one uses the street names anyway, when people give directions, its 'turn left at the football stadium, then right at the union.'" Also will be changing the names of Beauregard and Polk Halls (Confederate figures who had no impact on this area, names selected by some Baton Rouge bureaucrat when the university was founded). However, the name of the university will not change. (Rebranding an entire university would be extremely expensive, and Nicholls' impact was as a post-war Governor, not as a Confederate officer). The nickname Colonels will also not change. (Colonels was originally selected as a reflection of the school ROTC program, and the mascot reflects a WWII colonel. It changed to a Civil War style'd mascot in the 70's, but was rebranded in its original form about 10 years ago)

    Sounds bogus. Black guys don't do gymnastics unless they are gay. The straight ones play basketball

    How far will all this go? Here's a partial list of universities you can bet will be facing pressure to rename:

    Tulane - founder Paul Tulane was a slave owner.
    Washington & Lee (VA) - named for President/slave owner George Washington and Confederate General Robert E. Lee
    Duke - benefactor Washington Duke was a slave-owning tobacco magnate who fought for the Confederacy
    Rice - William Rice owned a small number of slaves. His will, while starting the endowment that founded the university, specified that the college be "for whites only."
    Clemson - Thomas G. Clemson was a slave owner and fought for the south in the war.
    Yale - Elihu Yale was a "prolific" slave trader
    Sam Houston University - Sam Houston was a slave owner and opposed abolition

    What's involved in rebranding a school? edweek.org says Fairfax County, Virginia, will spend more than $350,000 changing the name of J.E.B. Stuart High School to Justice High School.

    The Code Noir (French pronunciation: [kɔd nwaʁ], Black Code) was a decree originally passed by France's King Louis XIV in 1685. The Code Noir defined the conditions of slavery in the French colonial empire, restricted the activities of free Negroes, made Roman Catholicism religion compulsory, and ordered all Jews out of France's colonies

    yes, the same louis 14th that our state is named after. i propose we rename the state muslim trans acceptance zone

    Kiki's favorite QB, Kellen Mond, is leading the charge to have Lawrence Sullivan's statue removed from the Aggie campus. He basically brought that school out of ruin and made it what it is today. He also founded Prairie View A&M, which is an all black college in Texas. Students lay pennies at his feet for good luck on tests. It is a very long tradition and he is as much apart of that school as the Core is.

    But damn, he was a Confederate General. He was a horrible person.

    I LOVE this line right here. We'll make all the 'right' changes unless it's too expensive. Besides, nevermind what Nicholls did as a confederate officer. We're only honoring what he did as a post-war Governor. In other words, we will not be making changes across the board. Only those that are economically viable and those that suit us.
