University of Oregon Debates Removing Martin Luther King Jr.'s "Content of His Character" Quote From Statue, Due to Not Being "Diverse" Enough

I imagine the problem is that when King said a man should not be judged on the color of his skin, but on the content of his character, this failed to be properly "intersectionalist" and take into consideration that patterns of White Oppression are present in biases against women, homosexuals, and transexuals as well.

And, no mention of the oppression of cis-speakers of a community's dominant language over trans-speakers or non-speakers, nor of Moos-lims, as Democrats now all pronounce it.

Plus, he said "man" and "he."

They decided to keep the quote, after some "hard thought," apparently.

So: Victory, i guess.

Meanwhile, a Georgia legislator sends this message to universities seeking state funds: either end your kangaroo court system and guarantee actual due process, or get ready to do without state money.

Thanks to John Ekdahl and a guy calling himself something like "FunkyTablet."
