Racist Rock Removed From College Campus After Black Student Union, Activists Complain
 
This piece of leftist idiocy cracked me up.

Quote:

A large boulder has been removed from the University of Wisconsin-Madison after the Black Student Union and other racial justice activists complained about it being a “racist monument.”

What makes the rock allegedly racist? In the 1920s, a journalist once used a racist term to describe the large boulder.

The rock’s existence has apparently been oppressing students ever since.

Fox News outlined the “racism” of the rock, as claimed by student activists:

Chamberlin Rock, which rests atop Observatory Hill, is named after a 19th Century geologist and former university president, Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, whose work centered on glacial deposits, according to a bio on the university’s website.

But it was a reporter’s reference to the rock in a nearly century-old Wisconsin State Journal article that prompted the push for its removal.

In October 1925, the university had the boulder excavated and placed prominently atop the hill to honor Chamberlin, who would die in Chicago three years later. The rock was a rare specimen believed to be more than 2 billion years old, and before it was installed on Observatory Hill, only about a foot and a half was visible above ground, according to the article. It was believed to have been carried by glaciers from Canada to Wisconsin.

In the 1920s, a slang term used to describe large dark rocks included the N-word, and it appears in coverage of the rock’s installation.

You may want to reread the story. The use of the N word was a vague reference many decades ago and had nothing to do with the original designation of the rock as a memorial.

If a rock can be deemed racist then anything can be deemed racist, making the term meaningless. :thumbsup

It's been that was for, at least, 15 years now...

Earlier, this year, it was this retarded crap...:mad

Comedian Bill Burr Accused of Being Racist For Marrying A Black Woman

One of the earlier memories of this was when the NAACP attacked hallmark greeting cards because of its space-themed cards that said "black holes"...:rolls

Niger - Latin for black

Is that an "N" word also?

What's next for removal -- Brazil nuts?

All snowflake dandelions need to chew a prune.

In Latin, the word for black is ater.

When the Spanish transported slaves they called them Negro which interestingly enough became a word at that time.
the derogatory version of the N word was strictly what slaves were called in America. Other places the word for indian/black mixed were given the name sambo by the spanish as a derogatory expression from the first usage.

Yes. It also means dismal, gloomy, unlucky. I'll stick with my Latin teacher's lessons. Snowflakes are afraid of any "N" word describing the Negroid race. Incidentally, the word for "black" is pronounced KNEE-gair.

On a side note, there are only two races of mankind: Ass hole and human.

No I'm fine with it as evidenced by several of my email accounts also the initials as my user name here. It's just that I don't like to offend people, except those biotching about why they aren't allowed to offend others with their pet rock. :p

That simplistic retort does nothing to further your argument. Perhaps you would like to expound on that idea?

When it got to the last part about being carried by glaciers, I thought it was going to say that it was carried by slaves. I cracked myself up. :D;)
