University of Virginia President Teresa Sullivan is being asked to refrain from quoting Thomas Jefferson because of his racist beliefs, according to The Cavalier Daily.
A letter, signed by 469 faculty members and students, was sent to Sullivan on Nov. 11 protesting the use of a Jefferson quotation in her email calling for unity after the presidential election, the student newspaper reported.
“We would like for our administration to understand that although some members of this community may have come to this university because of Thomas Jefferson’s legacy, others of us came here in spite of it,” the letter read. “For many of us, the inclusion of Jefferson quotations in these e-mails undermines the message of unity, equality and civility that you are attempting to convey.”
Because nothing must interfere with their feels being protected.
The daughter of one of the Dallas police officers killed during the July 7 ambush was told she was no longer invited to hit an honorary serve at a volleyball game at Southern Methodist University “in light of recent events and diversity within the SMU community.”
The university has since apologized and re-extended the invitation, but it did not explain why the invite was spiked in the first place.
Let's translate that: "The university, having been drowned by citizens asking what the hell is wrong with them, decided to backtrack and apologize."
Think about the level of stupid involved in this, and marvel that these idiots are in charge of a university, and teaching this shit to the students.
Good; that corrupt bastard needs to be thrown out. And since he's lied under oath to Congress, prosecuted.
