Silver linings

Of course, it wasn’t Wilson’s racist thinking that was the problem, it was his globalism:

Princeton has stripped the name of 28th President Woodrow Wilson from a college and public policy school due to his ‘racist thinking.’

Princeton University President Christopher Eisgruber announced on Saturday the institution will remove Wilson’s name from its public policy school and a residential college.

‘On my recommendation, the board voted to change the names of both the School of Public and International Affairs and Wilson College,’ Eisgruber said in a statement.

He added: ‘the trustees concluded that Woodrow Wilson’s racist thinking and policies make him an inappropriate namesake for a school or college whose scholars, students, and alumni must stand firmly against racism in all its forms.’

That’s quite the responsibility for the alumni, given the obligations imposed upon them. It’s got to be exhausting standing firmly against racism in all its forms every day.
