    Students demand college rename ‘Lynch’ building because of racial overtones

    Protesters at a Pennsylvania college are demanding that the school rename a building called Lynch Memorial Hall because of the racial overtones of the word “lynch.”

    The group of students at Lebanon Valley College submitted a list of demands to the administrators, including nixing the name of the building devoted to the college’s former president, Clyde A. Lynch.

    “All of the hate at this school makes me want to cry,” one student, Lacey Eriksen, wrote on Twitter about the protest.

    Student organizers said the college needed to address “institutional injustices” on the campus.

    “It’s a rare moment here at Lebanon Valley College,” Michael Schroeder, an associate professor of history, told PennLive outside a recent demonstration.

    The demonstration Schroeder spoke at was closed to photos and video by organizers who sought to create a “safe space,” the site said.

    A school spokesman called former president Lynch a “very important figure” in the history of the college. He is credited with guiding the school through the Great Depression.

    Other demands by the group include a more diverse curriculum, more sensitivity training for staff and regular surveys of the racial climate on campus.

    Oh, for the love of fuck. This can't be real. Give these race-baiting pussies an inch, they'll take a mile. Rename it after Daniel Carver and give them something to bitch about. Even better, rename it after Senator Robert Byrd - (D), who was in the KKK. Then sit back and watch their culture-warrior heads explode. Assholes.

    The fact that it's called Lebanon Valley offends me. Change it.

    — Lacey Eriksen (@FrolickingFatty)

    I've never been to Lebanon Valley College, but I sincerely doubt it is some hot spot for hatred. I'm not sure which is the worse scenario: that this girl is delusional OR that she's perfectly a-ok with making dishonest proclamations that she doesn't really believe for political purposes. Where do kids learn this shit?

    Oh, and Frolicking Fatty :snicker:

    Fun fact: the city of Berkeley was named for a slaveowner... Every few years someone figures this out, and everyone fights over it. The mane never changes because they all can't find one name that cannot be found to be offensive to someone.

    These people aren't politically correct, they're the "professionally offended." And there are far too many of the professionally butthurt on both sides.

    Harvard Law School- endowed with money from Isaac Royall, an Antiguan slave owner & sugar grower
    JP Morgan Chase- made a fortune from the slave trade. Predecessor banks (Citizens Bank, Canal Bank in Louisiana) accepted slaves as collateral, taking possession of 1,250 slaves from owners that defaulted on loans
    Princeton- raised money and recruited students from rich, slave-owning families in the South & Caribbean. By the middle 1700s, most Princeton students were the sons of slave owners. Many of Columbia's students were sons of slave traders.

    Wasn't "Eric the Actor's" family name Lynch? His family will have to change their name.

    That sounds like a shitty school. Maybe if the students studied harder, they wouldn't be in the 13th grade.
    This country has way too many colleges.
