The short version is 'Nothing but total surrender

will shut the SJBs up.  For a while.  Until they start telling you who to hire and fire.'
Not everyone is happy about Yale’s decision to rename Calhoun College from a slaveowner and white supremacist to a feminist icon, Rear Adm. Grace Murray Hopper. The loudest outcry comes not from anyone wishing to preserve history, but from the Yale Women’s Center, which claims that choosing a white woman ignores Yale’s history of slavery and perpetuates white supremacy.
Yeah.  That's the problem.  Bullshit.  Because when a Woman of Colour was invited,
Last year, the women’s center objected to a visit by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who was set to lecture on “Islam and the West.” Ali, a Somali-born women’s rights activist and fierce critic of religious extremism, has faced blowback from social justice activists for being critical of political Islam. 

The women’s center, along with several other student organizations, urged the university to disinvite Ali. They argued that she “does not hold the credentials” to speak as an authority on the religion despite being a scholar and researcher on political Islam.
She wasn't a proper Womyn of Colour, because she doesn't have the PC-approved beliefs.  Etc.

Having been to a lecture by Admiral Hopper and speaking with her at a luncheon afterwards, I gotta say she was an impressive lady who was very much worthy of the honor.

To not give it to her simply because she wasn't black would be discrimination...plain and simple.

Somewhere, I probably still have my "nanosecond" that she gave me.
