It was never going to stop with Confederate Statues. It was never going to stop with statues of Founding Fathers. Heck, it was never going to stop with the removal of all statues to white men or white women.

Even geological formations with connections to promoting white space/white supremacy/structural inequality/implicit bias/white privilege must go.

Immediately. [UW set to remove Chamberlin Rock due to its racist past, The Daily Cardinal, November 20, 2020]:

After 95 years, UW-Madison will move forward in removing Chamberlin Rock from Observatory Hill, of which students of colors viewed the boulder as a representation of decades of racism and oppression seen on campus.

Named after Thomas Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president, the UW Department of Geoscience believed the boulder was carried south by glaciers from as far north as Canada before being excavated from the side of Observatory Hill in 1925.

However, while the rock carries a rich geographical history, it also maintains a troubling past, evoking racist sentiments toward students of color on campus. Beginning in the 1920s, the Chamberlin rock was referred to by a racial slur. The Wisconsin State Journal used the slur in a 1925 headline, and the term eventually fell out of common usage by the 1950s, according to the State Journal.

Nalah McWorter, President of the Wisconsin Black Student Union, said the rock’s removal serves as a pivotal measure in helping BIPOC students feel included within the UW community.

“This is a huge accomplishment for us,” McWhorter told the State Journal on Wednesday. “We won’t have that constant reminder, that symbol that we don’t belong here.”

The WBSU also hopes the rock’s removal will increase collaboration and inclusion efforts on campus. The rock’s removal was one of four listed demands provided by the Wisconsin Black Student Union in June. Other items included meeting with the Student Inclusion Coalition to discuss 1969/2020 demands, removing Bascom Hill’s Abraham Lincoln statue and meeting with Chancellor Blank to hear their experiences and recommendations for making campus more inclusive, according to an Instagram post.

Despite the multidimensional moving process, many activist groups saw the removal as a step in the right direction after petitioning for its removal throughout the summer.

Because the rock sits near an effigy mound, the removal of the boulder will require the approval of the Wisconsin Historical Society and each Native American tribe in Wisconsin, the State Journal reported.

Getting tribal approval can take anywhere from 60 to 90 days, including a 30-day comment period. A qualified archaeologist must also be on-site during the boulder’s removal.

The boulder weighs 70 tons and will cost anywhere from $30,000 to $75,000 to remove, according to a report from the UW Campus Planning Committee.

While the rock’s future remains undecided, McWhorter said the Wisconsin Black Student Union will consider ideas on how students of color can utilize the space on Observatory Hill to reflect a more positive environment.

“So it becomes a way to celebrate instead of having it as an empty space reminding us of what it once was,” McWhorter said.

Our job was always to survive this insanity. There’s no negotiating with people who believe a rock (a geological formation) can have a racist past.

  1. And to think, these whiners are the future leaders of this country. This country is so fucked. They’ll probably scream and cry, and run to their safe places the first time North Korea or Iran says boo to them. I’m glad I’m at an age to where I won’t live to see too much of that shit show. And to think, I was once so proud of this country that I proudly served in the US Navy, and was permanently injured doing so. Now I just hang my head…….

    Blacks are going to MAKE people racist if they don’t stop their incessant, never-ending crybaby whining about what is in reality EVERYTHING in the world. Their problem is within themselves.

    I made the same point to a friend some time ago. I finally began speaking honestly and was being argued at by the kid (now in his 50’s) who grew up with defense contractor daddy, nearly 100% white schools, etc…

    I had to tell him, “If people learn to be racist then I was taught by being physically attacked, stolen from, treated like crap, lied to, etc. by actual black people I was surrounded by.” He had the temerity to say something about people (whites) needing to realize they are part of the “working class”. He can’t understand that blacks do not think of themselves this way.

    People raised by Republicuck daddy whose retirement has Old Republicuck Daddy and the missus traveling internationally haven’t spent actual time with their pets and they need to. They will not, of course, nor will their children. Tonight on “In Search Of”, we will be looking for upper middle class weenuses that live in black areas, send their kids to black schools and socialize with the truly unlucky 13%.

    Why should anyone be concerned with what orc students, allowed into a university because of AA, want? Acceptance into a university is competitive, and any orc who doesn’t like theirs can leave. They can try their luck at one of their “historically black universities.” As a honky, I wouldn’t want to attend one of their HBUs and there is no reason for them to dominate what happens at a university that’s been “historically white.” There is no reason orcs should have access to white people or anything else white, except a white-built ship on a one way trip back to the dark continent.

  19. It’s pretty pathetic when young people settle for agitating over meaningless symbols instead of fighting for an equitable society. Triumph of the Right, is what it is, not of the Left: controlling the dialogue and channeling the revolutionary enthusiasm of youth into “causes” that are harmless to a thoroughly corrupt power elite. And creating a rallying point to distract equally deluded reactionaries, good deal all around. Guess the one percenters aren’t at the top of the pile for nothing. No wonder they treat us with such contempt: we are so easy to fool.

    As a modest historical aside, that “offensive racist term” for the rock was used on square-rigged sailing vessels to describe the two bollards at the bow, around which mooring lines or anchor chains were secured. I discovered this long ago when I made a clipper ship model using an 1850s plan.

  20. “We won’t have that constant reminder, that symbol that we don’t belong here.”

    Chances are very good indeed that you don’t belong there. Or in Wisconsin. Or in the US.
    Since America itself is a constant reminder of racism, and you cannot move the country as you can a rock, the “smart” thing to do is to move your arses right on out of it.
    In terms of black intellect as opposed to that of the rock, I’d go with the rock.

Here’s what you get when you visit the Stanley, Black and Decker website:

    “We are for those who demand justice, take a stand for equality and commit to inclusivity for all.” – CEO, Jim Loree

    Click on the link and you get this:


    To Our Stakeholders:

    Stanley Black & Decker condemns and is deeply saddened and distressed by recent events, including brutal police actions that have led to the deaths of unarmed black men and women, such as George Floyd and others. There is no place in society for this type of racism and brutality. We are for those who demand justice, take a stand for equality and commit to inclusivity for all.

    We have seen anguish and unrest resulting from racism and implicit bias, spilling out into streets across the country. The deep-rooted history of these truths is real and millions of black people in our country feel them every day. The protests across the nation occur as we all continue to be challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic that is causing loss of life, loss of employment, and the loss of a sense of security for all Americans; yet, it is a pandemic that has disproportionately affected the African American and Latino populations. This fact adds to the anger and frustration and shines a light on yet another issue that must be addressed in seeking equality and justice for all.

    We stand For Those Who Make The World, our Purpose statement adopted just over three years ago. The “Those” is intended to reinforce our commitment to inclusivity for all people. Our focus on diversity and inclusion is a cornerstone of what and who we stand for. There is no place in our company for anyone who does not demonstrate this leadership principle or live by this value.

    We stand to do better and be better. We know that our team and each and every one of us can contribute to creating a better world for our colleagues, customers and communities. It will take our support, informed by our employees, customers and communities, to make a difference. We intend to listen, understand and take action to do better for the African American community within Stanley Black & Decker and at large.

    This kind of BS makes me want to avoid this company’s products forever, but I wonder if other tool manufacturers are any different?

    Jim Loree should have added his gratitude to the “African American community” for so much destruction this year in its riots and looting across the country. No doubt this spurred a large increase in sales as stores and homeowners bought tools to help board up their properties.

    Newsweek reports that Friday’s shooting was the third such shooting at the Mayfair Mall this year.

    You’re attempting to insult a disabled veteran?
    I’m sure you’ve encountered your share of seamen.

    You can safely ignore Wyatt.

    His mom never taught him how to behave around the normal kids.

    I didn’t attempt. I did. And I would venture a guess he gave less of a shit about it than you did, you preening AWFL. Go advocate for tranny muslims if you want to spend your outrage points on something.

    The whole work is “Best Korea” style.

    But where could he possibly get a Roadrunner burger?

    One reason I asked was because your insult is neither funny nor cutting. Unless “seven seas” has somehow entered the popular vernacular as meaning something other than the oceans of the world.
    Another reason I asked was to determine why someone would post that utterly mean and unnecessary comment.
    I did insult you in the childish way that you attempted.

    Whites have become second-class citizens in their own country with astonishing speed. If you’re a young, bright, gifted white person, you go to college, like perhaps UW-Madison, and get fed four years of propaganda about how evil you are. Then you go off into a corporate world that is looking for any excuse not to hire you. Yet somehow you can use your natural smarts and abilities to find success, and then look forward to several decades of the government blaming you for non-white dysfunction while using you as a piggy bank to subsidize it. At the same time activists will yell that everything you scraped together you don’t deserve.

    There really is very little for white people in this country at this point, and I don’t know what we do going forward. I guarantee President Kamala isn’t going to do much to change this.

    Damn those flying bullets.

    Luckily, in all the thousands of rounds I possess, I’ve never had a box of those flying bullets.

    Manufactured under the Willy Nilly brand name and sold in the inner city, you’d hope for better…

    It doesn’t even look like MLK.

    He had small shoulders but I guess they decided to buff him out a bit.

    Is he holding a plagiarized speech?
