At George Washington University students have started a petition to replace the schools “colonials” mascot with something non-colonial.
At Florida State they are considering removing a statue and a building name because the namesakes either owned slaves or authored opinions that supported segregation.
History is falling victim to political correctness and we are not better off for it. It’s also happening in other areas of society.
For example, in England, food wagon vendor Peter Gallacher has hired his buddy Sean Clark to portray a leprechaun with a sandwich board advertising a discount if customers “Mention the Midget.” Funny thing is, the news story from Fox News would not spell out midget, using dashes instead of letters, as if midget is curse word. NOTE to the perpetually offended- it isn’t!
Losing history, being offended by little person employment, it makes me wonder. Just where is Ritch Workman when we need him?
