Unreasonable Black Student Demands

Black protests at universities are spreading across America.

Princeton University students have urged school officials to rename programs and buildings named for U.S. President Woodrow Wilson.

University President Christopher Eisgruber has agreed to consider their demands after protests.

The School of Public and International Affairs and a dormitory at the Ivy League university are named for Wilson.

As U.S. president, he led progressive initiatives but supported segregation. Racial segregation, mostly in Southern states, was legal policy during his presidency from 1913 to 1921. He served as president of New Jersey’s Princeton University from 1902 to 1910.

The Black Justice League lead the protesters, who want Wilson’s name, photograph and mural removed from other public spaces on campus.

Wilson lead America during World War I and championed American membership in the League of Nations, a forerunner to the United Nations.

Black protests are spreading across America in an effort to destroy history. It would be a better choice to talk about the diversity of issues than destroying our past. All our idols have feet of clay.
