    Not everyone is happy about Yale’s decision to rename Calhoun College from a slaveowner and white supremacist to a feminist icon, Rear Adm. Grace Murray Hopper. The loudest outcry comes not from anyone wishing to preserve history, but from the Yale Women’s Center, which claims that choosing a white woman ignores Yale’s history of slavery and perpetuates white supremacy. The university organization is displeased that Yale chose the accomplished alumna and computer science pioneer instead of a woman of color. On Facebook (via Yale Daily News), the center said the choice of Hopper doesn’t reflect the issues and values raised...

    the former secretary of state "will supervise the new school's Kerry Initiative as a distinguished fellow for global affairs," where he's set to teach a seminar next school year. Per Yale's description, Kerry will supervise, "an interdisciplinary program that will tackle pressing global challenges." . . . Now, Yale says, Kerry will work with researchers "on issues including climate change, global economic development, authoritarian populism and violent extremism."
  • Why Yale Should Drop the Name 'Yale,' Too: Calhoun Was Not the Only Slave Owner

    Today, I have a column in the Wall Street Journal about Yale’s decision to rename Calhoun College. As I mentioned there, anyone paying attention to what’s been happening on college campuses, and especially to what’s been happening at Yale, will not be surprised at the decision. Back in August 2016, Yale’s president Peter Salovey announced that, in response to various agitations from students and faculty, he was convening the Soviet- or Orwellian-sounding “Committee to Establish Principles on Renaming.” As I noted at the time, there has been something of a craze for renaming things on college campuses recently, as students...

    After years of debate, Yale University announced Saturday it will change the name of a residential college that honors a 19th century alumnus and former U.S. vice president who was an ardent supporter of slavery. Yale trustees said the Ivy League university is renaming Calhoun College after trailblazing computer scientist Grace Murray Hopper, a mathematician who earned Yale degrees in the 1930s, invented a pioneering computer programming language and became a Navy rear admiral.

    Last Friday, Yale students, staff and faculty held their first weekly workshop on organized opposition to President Donald Trump’s administration. These Fired Up Fridays sessions provide opportunities for Yale community members to learn how to be effective activists. Organized by participants of the post-election Law School gathering in November, these sessions are part of a continued effort to organize and act in response to the political situation brought about by Trump’s presidency. The series of workshops, the first of which was held in the Dwight Hall common room, will bring together people at Yale with long-standing experience in community organizing...

    American Thinker ^ | 12/09/2016 | Ed Straker
    My alma mater, Yale University, embroiled in the latest PC controversy about the renaming of one of its dormitories, or residential colleges, named after John C. Calhoun, has announced a process under which students may petition to have the name of Calhoun College (or any other residential college) changed. One wonders however, if this will only be the beginning, rather than the end, because Yale itself is also named for someone connected to the slave trade, Elihu Yale. This is hardly a new development, politically speaking, for Yale. In my day there were fliers in big 50 point font screaming...

    Many, including me, have lamented that political correctness, especially on university campuses, is undermining free speech. That's true, but I'm not sure that political correctness is the only culprit or that free speech is the only casualty. Most of us have heard about "white privilege," "trigger warnings," "microaggressions" and "safe spaces." Let me provide rough definitions from an online dictionary and other websites. I'm sure that I could be accused of a microaggression for failing to be more precise, but I'm trying. White privilege is the notion that whites have an advantage in getting societal benefits in Western countries, to...

    New videos have surfaced of a Yale professor being protested and yelled at by students for sending an email telling them to ignore people dressed in offensive or racist Halloween costumes. The fallout of the email saw Nicholas Christakis, the master of Silliman College at Yale, and his wife Erika, a faculty member, resign from their positions at the university. The new videos, which appeared on The Federalist, give a greater insight into what the students were demanding from Christakis, and his defense that cultural appropriation on Halloween is permissible. Many students in the mob of almost 100 can be...

With the formation of a Committee to Establish Principles on Renaming, the door appears to be open to reconsidering the Yale Corporation’s decision not to rename the residential college, despite widespread anger among Yale students, alumni and faculty during the last academic year.

    NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – The state of Connecticut dropped all charges against a Yale University employee who smashed a stained glass window he found racially insensitive. Yale had already said it was not pressing charges against Corey Menafee. A state prosecutor said in court that if Yale was not interested in prosecuting Menafee, then there was no reason the state should use its limited resources to proceed with the case.

    Corey Menafee says he destroyed the window inside Calhoun College in New Haven, Connecticut, last month because he found it offensive. The name of the residential college has sparked protests because it honors former Vice President John C. Calhoun, an 1804 Yale graduate and an ardent defender of slavery. Menafee apologized for breaking the window. Yale said it was willing to let him return to work next week.

    A Yale University employee is out of a job, and the school is out a window, after he used a broomstick to smash a stained-glass window he complained was racist. Until recently, Thomas Menafee worked as a dishwasher for Yale. But he says he grew enraged that, while working at Yale’s Calhoun College, he had to see a stained glass window which shows black laborers harvesting cotton. The window, he said, was an offensive portrayal of slavery, and so on June 13 he impulsively decided to eliminate it by force. “I took a broomstick, and it was kind of high,...

David Strollo, supervisory assistant state’s attorney for the New Haven Geographical Area, said he couldn’t comment specifically on Corey Menafee’s case, but said, “Generally speaking, as a practical matter, the state’s not interested in this type of thing,” specifically “property crime vs. going out and hurting somebody.” “If the parties come to a resolution...

    She’s now a pro-abortion feminist who panders to the LGBTQ community. But there was a time when Hillary Clinton was a "Goldwater Girl," named for 1964 Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater, and conservative in her political outlook. All of that changed when she went to college and attended Wellesley and Yale. Today, Hillary-type women are the norm, not the exception. You can see this for yourself in the videos or pictures of young women screaming for their "rights" to abort the unborn. Some women even say they’re proud of their own abortions. Colleges and universities are mostly to blame for...
