Now Rocks Are Racist Too...

University Moves Forward on Plan To Remove Boulder After Activists Claim It Is Racist
A geologically and archeologically-significant boulder on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus may be slated for relocation, burial, or total destruction after two groups deemed it a racist symbol.

The Wisconsin Black Student Union proposed the relocation or destruction of the boulder — named “Chamberlin Rock” in 1926 after geologist and then-University President Thomas Crowder Chamberlin — after claiming it had a racist history.

A 1925 State Journal article chronicled the discovery of the rock as a “n—erhead,” a common term for large dark rocks in the 1920s that fell out of use by the 1950s. The article is the only known instance of the term being used to describe the rock, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.
Inside sources tell me that as soon as this boulder is removed from campus, the Wisconsin Black Student Union will focus on removing every single Brazil nut from local retailers. Can's of mixed nuts will be required to be opened and the offending nuts removed.


Democrats were all for riots, until they were against them.

Isn't this sort of thing getting a little silly? One person with too much time on their hands finds a 95 year old newspaper article, and the university genuflects and starts peeing it's pants. I'm telling ya, this is the shape of things to come.

You posted some silly stuff about brazil nuts. But what's the chances that, as all this silliness gets entrenched, someone finds the name of Black Rock restaurants offensive? And management there actually ponders a name change? Look what Screen Glare posted a couple weeks ago. Change the name of the White House. And I believe she was serious. So silly.

you know why they are doing this, right?

They want something to put on their resumes to say that they've been good little soldiers in the liberal fight against literally anything from previous generations as a means of uprooting society and replacing it with Marxism.

It was called "niggerhead". So what? things were different then. Has "Nigger" become a common word on campus because of it? Is racism a problem on campus any more than it is at any other campus? Because someone said "Nigger" decades ago, or even today, that shouldn't be an issue. Grow up!

What's the chances even former president Obama and vice president elect Harris would call this rock removal silly?

they would celebrate it, even though they are smart enough to know it is silly. These aren't stupid people. Just deeply indoctrinated ones.

No one gives a fuck about rocks. Anyone with half a brain is concerned about COVID and the economy. If you notice, the economy tanks in places where COVID runs rampant.
