7. It isn't really about the good outweighing the bad

It's about the fact that this country continues to honor acknowledged racists in a way that prevents minority students from feeling fully a part of the college community.

I mean, if you were a black student, would you feel comfortable attending the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs for your undergraduate studies? Or having your dorm room in Wilson College?

Let them honor him if they must in some way that doesn't say, "We belong here and you don't."


On edit: Also this, from Alternet. "As president of Princeton University, he said, 'The whole temper and tradition of the place [Princeton] are such that no Negro has ever applied for admission, and it seems unlikely that the question will ever assume practical form.'
