Princeton students demand scrub of 'racist' Woodrow Wilson

Also require special space on campus just for blacks

By: Cheryl Chumley
Published: 8 hours ago



Princeton University has become the latest protest grounds for minority students demanding more diversity and institutional reform, as dozens took to the president’s office to stage a sit-in and call for better academic experiences for blacks.

The rally was staged by the Black Justice League, the members of which demanded Princeton president Christopher Eisgruber enact immediate reforms to improve “the social and academic experiences” of blacks at the Ivy League campus, Mediaite reported.

They also presented a list of demands – among, that school administrators “acknowledge the racist legacy of Woodrow Wilson” and rename university buildings honoring his legacy, and that officials require “cultural competency training for all staff and faculty.”

The group also demanded a “cultural space on campus dedicated specifically to black students,” the news outlet reported.

demands: “WE DEMAND the university administration publicly acknowledge the racist legacy of Woodrow Wilson and how he impacted campus policy and culture. We also demand that steps be made to rename Wilson residential college, the Woodrow Wilson School of Public Policy and International Affairs, and any other building named after him. Furthermore, we would like the mural of Wilson to be removed from the Wilcox dining hall. … WE DEMAND a cultural space on campus dedicated specifically to Black students, and that space can be within the Carl A. Fields Center but should be clearly marked. … So that we can ensure that these demands will be met, we will request that President Eisgruber sign this document.”

The university, in response, has already enacted change. Beginning immediately, the campus will no longer recognize the title of “master” at the university.

Princeton said in a statement reported by Mediaite: “Masters of the residential colleges at Princeton University have changed their titles to ‘head of the college,’ effective immediately.”

The term “master” has been used at colleges since Medieval days, but as Princeton said: “[The word is now] anachronistic and unfortunate for the positions we hold,” the news site reported.

I'm finding it harder to determine if these stories are real or satire
