MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Ball State University's trustees have voted to remove the name of alumnus and Papa John's founder John Schnatter from a business institute because of his use of a racial slur.
The board voted 8-1 Thursday to remove the name from the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise and return money donated by the Schnatter Family Foundation. The vote came nearly two weeks after the trustees issued a statement Aug. 3 supporting Schnatter .

Its a paradox, but academics are often the most reactionary, ideological and narrow-minded people you will ever meet.
They’re Liberals on a college campus. What did you really expect?
Are they going to remove David Letterman’s name from that other building because he’s mentally deranged?
WV Senator Robert Byrd was an “Exalted Cyclops” of the KKK. That means he was not just a local klan leader. He was THE local klan leader.
When will his name be removed from all those public buildings?
This is Soviet-level groupthink. God bless my children’s generation. They’re going to need it.
Gee, they’re so virtuous.
“his use of a racial slur”
This is what they do. The original story was that he QUOTED someone using the “n word.” Now that the original story has been long forgotten by an ignorant public, the media changes the facts when they refer to the original event. The public won’t remember what really happened. They will believe what is being printed now.
The f*ckheads did the same thing for Limbaugh over the Donavan McNabb thing. He did NOT say something racist about McNabb. Doesn’t matter to the media. After a few weeks they were referring to the event as “Limbaugh’s racist remarks.”
Truth doesn’t matter to these phallus inhalers.
I don’t know if any of y’all happen to watch Snowfall on audience channel, but I can’t count the number of times they used the “N” word. It’s mostly black actors and Mexican. All about drugs.
John Schnatter was quoting Colonel Sanders when he made the controversial remark. Has KFC caught any flack for that yet?
I agree.. he should get his donation back.
what horrible crime did he commit again?
Did he rape women like Harvey Weinstein?
Did he get our ambassadors killed in Benghazi like hilLIARy?
Did he murder $6 million Jews like Hitler?
What offense was it, that he should be stricken from all memory?
So are they returning the money? Criminals don’t.
Maybe they should investigate the Ball Brothers? I heard they may have said the N word also.
“John Schnatter was quoting Colonel Sanders when he made the controversial remark. Has KFC caught any flack for that yet?”
Anyone quote LBJ yet? Where’s the removal of LBJ references?
Think about what you just said - Liberals.
You’d think that means free, but it means the opposite.
We’ve certainly stretched out the English language beyond recognition or usefulness, haven’t we?
When I saw your comment, it just hit me.
I remember an early Rush Limbaugh show where he read a list of things in Iraq that were named after Saddam Hussein, and then a list of things in West Virginia that were named after Robert C. Byrd.
The Robert C. Byrd list was three times as long.
I even saw a chain of gas stations named after Senator Byrd when I visited West Virginia — Sheetz.
He should demand, publicly, the return of however many millions he’s donated... just to shame them
