A university in Pennsylvania is to remove the word ‘freedom’ from ID cards after a few students created a petition complaining that the word is offensive to minorities because it reminds them of ‘slavery’.

Robert Morris University in Pennsylvania now plans to change  its “Freedom Cards” to “RMU ID Cards,” Campus Reform reports after students created a petition that argued black students feel “dehumanized” by the term ‘freedom card’.

The term “has made minority students (black students in particular) feel like we are being dehumanized. Gifting us with IDs that grant us our ‘freedom’ is of extremely poor taste. Especially coming from a University that is named after a slave owner,” the petition claims.

“We would like to rename our Freedom Cards to something that is not insensitive,” it further demands.

It continues, “If Robert Morris University is the welcoming place that the other 76 percent of students know and love; we ask that these changes be made so that minority students can also feel that same pride in being a Colonial.”

It had only received 130 signatures when the RMU Dean of Students immediately caved, and announced that the name and design of the cards is to be changed.

Jonathan Potts, Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations at RMU, told Campus Reform that a name change of the card was already being discussed anyway:

“We had already been planning to redesign and rename our student, faculty, and staff identification cards to make them more widely recognized on campus and more easily communicate their purpose,” Potts said, adding that the school “nonetheless thought the time was right to communicate it to the students for whom it was a concern.”

It happens to be George Orwell’s birthday today (25th June). What was it that he wrote about freedom and slavery in 1984?

The Holocaust Museum in Florida has received backlash after announcing the opening of an exhibition concerning George Floyd, the man whose death in police custody sparked a resurgence of violent riots earlier this year.

Orlando 6 reports that “A new exhibit at the Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center in Maitland features powerful and inspiring photos taken in the wake of George Floyd’s death.”

“In the wake of George Floyd’s murder, we felt it was important to bring the meaning of the aftermath to our museum,” a statement on the museum’s website declares.

“Come face-to-face with stunning images and powerful words captured in the aftermath of the George Floyd murder, at the scene, by renowned photographer and storyteller John Noltner,” it continues.

Assistant Executive Director of The Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center of Florida, Lisa Bachman, said in a statement: “You don’t just see this exhibit. You feel it.”

“The expressions and thoughts of each person photographed tells a story that has a very universal message. It is one that can heal and bring us together. It shows us we are not alone in our thinking,” Bachman added.

Observers wondered what on earth Floyd’s case has to do with the genocide of six million Jews at the hands of Nazis.

Rock Bottom: Boulder To Be Removed After Students Complained It Is Racist

Let’s get the rock outta here!

A large rock in the campus of Wisconsin-Madison University is to be removed after the student’s union there declared that it is racist.

Not content with removing statues of actual people, the woke mob has now seemingly turned its attention to inanimate objects.

It appears that some bright spark unearthed a news clipping from the 1920s that referred to the large rock as a “n***erhead,” and all hell broke loose.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports:

UW-Madison is moving forward on a plan to remove a boulder from Observatory Hill after calls from students of color who see the rock as a painful reminder of the history of racism on campus.

The 70-ton boulder is officially known as Chamberlin Rock in honor of Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president. But the rock was referred to at least once after it was dug out of the hill as a “n***erhead,” a commonly used expression in the 1920s to describe any large dark rock.

[…]

The Wisconsin Black Student Union called for the rock’s removal over the summer. President Nalah McWhorter said the rock is a symbol of the daily injustices that students of color face on a predominantly white campus.

[…]

McWhorter also faulted the Wisconsin State Journal for printing the vulgarity in a 1925 news article.

The report notes that the press clipping from 95 years ago was the only time that anyone has ever referred to the rock using the term.

As Def Leppard famously posited in their 1992 number one hit, ‘Let’s get the rock outta here!’

The university’s campus planning committee voted unanimously that the boulder should be removed, but has not worked out what they are going to do with it.

Perhaps they should put it in a museum along with other racist horrors including (but not limited to) The US Constitution, Any term with the word ‘black’ in it, Chess, Vikings, Clowns, SpongeBob Squarepants, and time itself.
