It Was Never Going to Stop With Confederate Statues… [The WASHINGTON Post says George WASHINGTON University must change its name because racism, Post Millennial, May 10, 2022]:

In perhaps the greatest self-own of them all , The Washington Post published an article on Monday which argues that George Washington University must be renamed in order to address systemic racism and inequality.

By those standards, The Washington Post should follow suit and rename their own publication if they are truly serious about racial justice in America, as they claim to be.

The opinion piece titled, George Washington University needs a new name, argued that in order to address the university’s systemic racism, institutional inequality, and white supremacy, the school must be renamed, increase black enrollment, select a black president, and adopt decolonized university curriculum.

The author argued that racism runs rampant at George Washington University and has been since its founding in 1821. As the nation found itself in a racial reckoning in 2020 following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody, social justice warriors demanded change.

Students renamed George Washington University’s Cloyd Heck Marvin Center, which was named after a segregationist, to the University Student Center in 2021. However, the author, Caleb Francois, a senior at George Washington University, said it hardly made a dent in addressing systemic racism and inequality. If the University really wanted to make meaningful change, they would get rid of their name honoring the nation’s first and most historical President.

The author states that America’s “history of slavery, Jim Crow, red lining and other discriminatory policies toward African Americans has never been fully addressed or atoned for…in which compromise and intolerance are no longer an option.”

It’s unclear if The Washington Post will take the advice of the author but it’s evident the Bezos-owned publication has a hard time passing up a good virtue signaling opportunity, even if it comes at the expense of their own outlet.

The District of Columbia, named for Christopher Columbus. Washington D.C.

George Washington University has to go. So does the Washington Monument. Same with the Thomas Jefferson Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial. Theodore Roosevelt Island just outside D.C. must go too.

Let’s just make it official: anything named for a dead white male in the United States of America must be renamed. Whiteness is a pejorative in 2022 America. Thus, anything celebrating whiteness must be extirpated. This is the lingua franca uniting the ruling elite: whiteness is inherently insidious, thus all glorifications to America’s white past must be removed. To celebrate that past is a heresy to the glorious, non-white future in their eyes.

As one who long ago argued it’s time to wake up from the American Dream said, “I support renaming Washington. And the District of Columbia for that matter. It’s important to show that the current System has no relationship with what the Founders created. And the currently existing city is worth less than the dead bones of Washington and Columbus.”

    What are they going rename it – Shaka U? These ungrateful creatures fail to realize w/o the White man, they’d still be picking grubs out of tree roots and lice off each other’s nappy head. What many foolish White people fail to realize is w/o the negro, we’d truly be reaching for the stars.

  5. So … how about renaming the ‘Washington’ Post(mortem), too?

    Goose … meet gander …

  6. I wish blacks would STFU and hop a plane back to the muddaland and stop their never-ending, incessant whining about the past and present. I’m sick of hearing their bleating. As is, they could give whining lessons to a dog! Oh well, as far as I’m concerned, they can all go F themselves and so can their white libtard supporters and coddlers. I’m so over their BS, it’s not even funny.

    But learning real world skills,fuggetaboutit.

    @usNthem

    A poster on another site made a good point about blacks, insomuch that every achievement of theirs (outside of athletics) is a hollow one. They are literally handed opportunities at every turn, and constantly put into positions they should never be in. When they do find themselves in a job where they actually do need to make a decision that matters, it’s one disastrous misstep after another.

    At a previous corporate job, we had a few black women VP’s. Their lack of judgement and complete misunderstanding of what we did as a company was astounding. You could literally pick any one of the “lowly” day-to-day workers, and put them in their place, and they’d do 100% better job. This was understood by everyone, so people essentially kept the VP’s out of as much as possible, however, this just masked how bad these black women really were at their jobs. After a few years it became undeniable how hopeless they were, but right before any of them were fired they’d always jump positions to another company, usually in an even higher position. These women were pulling in a quarter million a year back then, it’s mind boggling thinking of the amount of money that is wasted on diversity hires in this country.

    Eventually the word America will also become problematic for them, it is after all based on a white man who like Columbus was committing genocide (according to them). What new name they will use will be interesting.

    @james wilson

    My hometown. The cuck mayor tore down all the columbus statues voluntarily and there was even thought of renaming the city to flavor town( I shit you not). All that bullshit and what happens? They blew away the all time high for homicides in a year. This year isn’t looking much better. Whites are never going to admit that the problem isn’t the circumstances around the blacks. It’s the blacks themselves. Praying for a violent separation. Got a lot of pent up rage towards the darkies. I used to be able to let it go. Now I’m ready for payback

  22. As the left has already renamed or tore down any monument I cared about why should I care about their stupid implosion about GWU? So fine, go ahead and rename it for all I care. Name it George Floyd U for all I care. These “universities” are NOT our allies in any sense of the word so why would I care about the left eating their own?

    It only deflects from the fact that every single university in the US needs to be closed and investigated with many of those punished severely for their transgressions. There is no possible reform possible so who cares what they name these giant wastes of money?

    (I know first hand the kind of garbage taught in American Universities since I have a Doctorate in Military History. It was %90 political correct nonsense, %9 learning how to form incomprehensible sentences and twist the English language, followed by %1 actual history. Thank God I never paid a dime for my education and instead used government programs that are available.)

    We must not let this happen. Enough is enough White Men. Take a God Damned Stand Already!

  24. The first mistake is to credit the lie that Confederate generals are different from the Founders. They are the same in every way.

  25. Niqqers are running the country. 15% or less of the population with many, maybe 50% or better, nothing but criminals and welfare leeches. How can this happen? Insane liberals who control the media, insane democraps who have political power, insane judges and insane prosecutors who wont accept the facts of niqqer violence and crime. Insane people destroying a nation bit by bit. Bow down to almighty negro, get ready whitey it’s our turn to pick cotton and shine shoes. I fear what the USA will look like in 20 yrs.

    The arc of history bends towards vindicating Alex Jones.

    It also vindicates Nietzsche who wrote of The Slave Revolt In Morality.

    Around that same time he also said, We are entering The Age of Shamelessness. Well said Fred. Of course, the two (Shamelessness and The Slave Revolt) go together.

    That’s why he said that there was one group in particular who would lead the slaves to revolt and at a time when they never had it better (Ortega picked up on this and developed it in his masterpiece The Revolt of The Masses referring to them as the spoiled children of human history).

    Nietzsche singled out this group as the ones responsible for the bold inversion of reality, ie; calling a lie the truth and the truth a lie, calling good people bad and bad people good, calling the strong and healty VERY BAD and the weak and stupid VERY GOOD. Orwell would eventually refer to this bold inversion as doublespeak.

    For anyone interested in knowing who that one group is see Nietzsche’s On The Genealogy of Morals, Essay One, section 7.

    There is no reason negroes can admit to and create their own elite university. The Pilgrims didn’t stumble upon a university in the woods and name it Harvard. Stanford’s nickname is The Farm because it was where founder Leland Stanford kept a horse farm. From stables to the West Coast’s premier university in under 50 years. With more than 40 million negroes in the US they could raise the necessary funds to build and endow a magnificent university the equal of any white school

    The problem is negroes are lazy, not very intelligent and very poor at managing anything. To become an elite university you have to be selective in who you allow to attend and attract quality faculty. Its why schools liked to boast about the SAT scores of their students and the prizes their professors have won. There just aren’t enough negroes with high SAT scores to make a Stanford or Harvard and even fewer negroes with Ph.D’s in the sciences to staff the faculty of a premier university. Negroes know this and it eats at them. Its why they demand admission to elite white institutions because they know they cannot create any of their own

    I don’t understand this popular association of blacks with music. They neither produce nor consume music. They “crap”.

    Although, to be fair, I recently saw a Youtube clip of 200 bagpipes playing Amazing Grace that featured a black singer. Of course, he didn’t know the words, and he missed his cue, but he had a good voice and no obvious nigga accent. Points for effort, but no cultural icon. The rest of his species accomplish nothing musically, apart from driving me out of shopping centres.
