  • Black Lives Matter Shut Down ACLU's Campus Free Speech Event Because 'Liberalism Is White Supremacy'

    It was the last remark she was able to make before protesters drowned her out with cries of, "ACLU, you protect Hitler, too." They also chanted, "the oppressed are not impressed," "shame, shame, shame, shame," (an ode to the Faith Militant's treatment of Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones, though why anyone would want to be associated with the religious fanatics in that particular conflict is beyond me), "blood on your hands," "the revolution will not uphold the Constitution," and, uh, "liberalism is white supremacy." This went on for nearly 20 minutes. Eventually, according to the campus's Flat Hat News,...

    WILLIAMSBURG - Spike Lee told a crowd of college students Tuesday night that his film "Do the Right Thing" was an all-too-accurate predictor of life in America nearly a quarter-century later. As evidence, he pointed to the killing last month of Trayvon Martin, the black teenager shot by a neighborhood-watch volunteer in a gated community in Sanford, Fla. - an incident that has generated a national furor. In the light of that episode, Lee said, his 1989 film, which depicted a culture of racial bigotry and hatred that exploded into violence, "was like a crystal ball." "Here we are in...

    When William and Mary student Mallory Johnson realized she couldn’t summon up the courage to start a conversation with a cute guy on campus, she simply logged onto and posted a message. He eventually responded and they started a relationship. GoodCrush, described as a “cross between and Facebook,” is “the brainchild of 23-year-old Josh Weinstein who started it in 2007 during his sophomore year at Princeton.” What sets it apart from other sites is the “double-blind approach”—both parties contact each other anonymously—“identities are only revealed if both people indicate they have a ‘crush’ on the other person.” Weinstein’s...

    Students at the College of William and Mary have elected a transgender homecoming queen. Jessee Vasold took the field Saturday at halftime of the Williamsburg school's football game against James Madison. The junior and other members of the homecoming court were introduced to the crowd and posed for pictures. Vasold identifies as "genderqueer," a term for those who don't adhere to either strictly male or strictly female gender roles.

    WILLIAMSBURG History was made without fanfare on Saturday. Jessee Vasold, William and Mary's first transgender homecoming queen, took the field at halftime of the Tribe's game against James Madison wearing a red shirt, black pants and a small silver lip ring to applause and not much other notice. Vasold, a junior, and the other members of the homecoming court were introduced to the crowd, posed for pictures, and walked off the field. "I knew I was nominated, but I was just surprised, because there were a lot of other really good candidates on the ballot," Vasold said. "I know all...

    The College of William & Mary in Virginia is looking for a few good mascot ideas. One suggestion? An asparagus stalk. More than 400 nominations have been submitted to the 15-member William & Mary Mascot Search Committee since April 1. On Monday a headline in The (Norfolk) Virginian-Pilot boldly asked, "Wanted: William & Mary mascot. Got an idea?" "It's been fun," Susan T. Evans, a committee member who created the online communities to open up the process, told the Virginian-Pilot. "We have a lot of great options to consider." More than half of the suggestion have come from William &...

    WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - The College of William & Mary in Virginia is looking for a mascot and ideas have ranged from a feathered horse to an asparagus stalk. The school said Monday more than 400 nominations have been submitted. William & Mary for decades was known as the Indians, but the school changed its nickname to Tribe in the 1980s. The NCAA ruled in 2006 that the college could keep the Tribe nickname but its feathered logo was demeaning to Native Americans and had to go. The school's athletic teams will still be called the Tribe, but the college wants...

    Dear William & Mary Community, As you know, earlier today the Board of Visitors offered me the presidency of the College of William & Mary, without “interim” in the title. I have accepted and am deeply moved by the Board’s confidence in me and by the enormous support that has come my way from all corners of the William & Mary community over the last six and a half months. We share a marvelous institution. I will do my level best for W&M. We are in this together, however, and the College needs the commitment of us all to move...

    The Virginian Pilot has decided that displaying a Christian cross crosses the free speech line. Free speech must allow nude dancing and sex shows because if we close them down, we are on the slippery slope to Fascism. But displaying a cross? Horrors! People will get the idea that anything goes regarding that First Amendment. Let’s read that once again: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government...

    WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Gene Nichol, who resigned as president of the College of William and Mary last month, is heading back to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to teach law. W. Taylor Reveley III, William and Mary's interim president, offered his best wishes to Nichol in a statement Thursday. Nichol's wife, Glenn George, also will teach at UNC. She has been teaching law at William and Mary. Nichol resigned abruptly on February 12th after learning the Board of Visitors did not plan to rehire him after a series of controversies, including the removal of a cross...

    College of William and Mary President Gene Nichol gave students the go-ahead this morning to hold the controversial Sex Workers' Art Show on campus next month.Students were unable to find an off-campus venue, however, and Nichol said the First Amendment and "defining traditions of openness that sustain universities" required he permit the show be held at the college.A Unitarian Universalist church in James City County had considered hosting the show, according to co-pastor Rev. Jennifer Ryu. County law, however, prohibited the church from hosting events that might feature public nudity, she said.

    WILLIAMSBURG (AP) -- Officials at the College of William & Mary have settled on a place in a college chapel to display the case that will house the Wren Cross. A committee appointed to make a recommendation announced Monday that the cross and its case will be placed near the east door at the front of the chapel. The recommendation was endorsed by college President Gene R. Nichol and Michael Powell, who as college rector heads the Board of Visitors. The school said that the display case is still under development, adding that it "will be accompanied by a plaque...

    Administrators at the College of William & Mary, responding to months of harsh criticism from alumni, ordered the immediate return of a cross to the Williamsburg school's historic Wren Chapel yesterday. Alumni angered by the removal of the cross in October threatened to withhold millions of dollars of donations -- including a $12 million gift. College President Gene R. Nichol announced the decision at a press conference yesterday afternoon with the co-chairmen of a special presidential committee charged with studying the role of religion at public universities. "This has been a challenging task for the committee, but it has produced...

    The decision by the president of the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, whose chancellor is former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, to remove a donated brass cross from the historic Wren Chapel may be costing the school a cool $12 million, according to a new report. It was last fall when WND revealed that university administrator Melissa Engimann circulated an e-mail noting that the cross in Wren Chapel was going to be placed in permanent storage to make the chapel "less of a faith-specific space." The school president, Gene Nichol, said he'd gotten a complaint about...

    Row Over Removal of College Cross Takes New Turn By Payton Hoegh Correspondent February 23, 2007 ( - The president of a Virginia college who removed a historical cross from the school's chapel to make it more welcoming is taking flak for allowing the performance of a risqué show and justifying it by invoking the need to "avoid censorship." The "Sex Workers' Art Show," a performance by people linked to the "sex industry" showing the "art" in their work, came to the College of William and Mary earlier this month as part of a nationwide tour. The show was...

    Here's free advice for the president of the College of William and Mary. Bring back the cross. Now. Or ignore it and continue to look foolish. Until that simple symbol of Christianity is permanently restored to its rightful place on the chapel's altar, the university will be vulnerable to charges of hypocrisy whenever truly offensive trash is trumpeted around campus. Take the Sex Workers' Art Show. While the trappings of Christianity may be too much for the delicate sensibilities of students and staff at William and Mary, it seems prostitutes and strippers are just fine. Better than fine, actually. When...
