    Why must some people be canceled in order to advance others? This should not be necessary.

    The College Fix reports:

    Citing Black Lives Matter, photos of retired white male professors to be taken down at U. Oklahoma

    In a statement on the Black Lives Matter protests, the chair of the University of Oklahoma Department of Political Science has announced the removal of a swath of photos of retired professors that hangs in the department’s entryway, pointing out it consists only of “white male faces.”

    “We will transform the entryway to our department on the second floor of Dale Hall Tower,” the statement from Chair Scott Robinson reads. “One of the walls of this entry includes the images of retired members of our department, a set that exclusively includes white male faces.”

    “This will be replaced with a space in which our current students can express themselves and represent their own voices.”

    The decision, Robinson stated, is one of eight measures the department will undertake to address “issues related to racial justice and inequalities,” adding: “I stand with those that demand that we act like #blacklivesmatter — and not just pretend that our system protects all lives equally.”

    So you’re going to pretend those people never existed. You’re going to Stalinize your walls. You have no business pretending to be an institute of higher learning anymore. And, as Glenn says, when the people finally defund you it will be claimed it’s because of “anti-intellectualism”.

    “represent their own voices”

    Do they really think the mob will be satisfied with this pablum?

    It is a shame that Political Science at that place doesn’t seem to require any courses in History, you know, that place where Political Science is field-tested. Or, he is the Neville Chamberlain chair in their department.
