Excerpt:

Former first lady Michelle Obama on Monday praised her alma mater, Princeton University, for dropping 28th President Woodrow Wilson’s name from its public policy school.

“Heartened to see my alma mater make this change, and even prouder of the students who’ve been advocating for this kind of change on campus for years,” Obama wrote on social media. “Let’s keep finding ways to be more inclusive to all students—at Princeton and at every school across the country.”

*snip*

Obama graduated from the Ivy League school with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology in 1985.

Princeton’s Board of Trustees recently voted to drop Wilson’s name from the university’s School of Public and International Affairs and residential college.

“We have taken this extraordinary step because we believe that Wilson’s racist thinking and policies make him an inappropriate namesake for a school whose scholars, students, and alumni must be firmly committed to combatting the scourge of racism in all its forms,” Princeton University President Christopher Eisgruber said in a statement Saturday.

“Wilson’s racism was significant and consequential even by the standards of his own time,” added Eisgruber. “He segregated the federal civil service after it had been racially integrated for decades, thereby taking America backward in its pursuit of justice.”

And yet Planned Parenthood is still all the rage among the leftards.

Why does an Ivy League school offer a sociology major?  I used to work with a woman who got her bachelors in Sociology and her masters in Womens Studies.  She works in a bar.

Someone else's idea from Facebook: Woodrow Wilson also signed the laws creating the Federal Reserve and the Federal Income Tax.  How about we get rid of those legacies of a racist president too, lefites?

Err.....umm.....SHE graduated from Princeton in 1985. Think about that carefully: A black woman, TWO allegedly "oppressed minorities" (:rolleyes:), had no trouble getting into this Ivy League college and getting her bachelor's degree. How is that "not" inclusive???

:scratch: 

She's obviously every bit as clueless as every other chowderheaded leftist.

<_<

(And yes, LOL, I fully expect the "that's a man!" responses. But I'm being serious here.)

:rolleyes:

I know one who is now a director of an agency, after completing her BA in sociology and then a masters in social work. She was once a foster kid from a neglectful, abusive home. It is a useful and essential profession.

It lofts my heart that the Obamas are ignoring petty things like rioting and violence and concentrating on the important things.

I was being flippant, but both sides of the big pond, its seen as the weakest of the humanities, and studied by those who aren't quite bright enough to 'do' history, philosophy, politics etc.

As well as being very left-wing biased. Not that I believe nothing should have some left-wing component, you need balance, but it does always seem very of the left.

I’ll give an ounce of credit to Princeton on one thing: Woodrow Wilson was a democrat. 
 

If you read his history you can clearly connect the dots, yet leftists today still don’t understand jack about what they vote for. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodrow_Wilson
