Washington and Lee College is under seige by “The Committee”. What? That’s a stupid question, of course its a black student group.
Here is a list of demands from a group of black law students calling themselves “The Committee”:
Here is a list of the FOUR DEMANDS:
1. We demand that the University fully recognize Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus.
2. We demand that the University stop allowing neo-confederates to march on campus with confederate flags on Lee-Jackson Day.
3. We demand that the University immediately remove all confederate flags from its property and premises, including those flags located within Lee Chapel.
4. We demand that the University issue an official apology for the University’s participation in chattel slavery, including a denunciation of General Robert E. Lee’s participation in slavery.
If the school does not act by SEPTEMBER 1, 2014 we WILL engage in civil disobedience.
I expect the faculty to cave, of course. Its a wonder that Battle Flags and Lee’s tomb are still displayed.
