RE: Fascinating Local Excercise in Wokeness

This whole business brings to mind, with some fondness, the oddness that is my educational career. Starting with Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn, MI named for a notorious racist in his hometown which had a mayor for decades that kept blacks out until he died at some point in the late 70’s. But retains the name of the founder of the town company that still bears his name.

To Eastern Michigan University that were known as the “Hurons” until the mid-90s sometime when they changed their name to the Eagles because it’s wrong to name a school after indigenous, proud warriors who once lived there.

To the University of Michigan which is currently a constant source of embarrassment on many levels.

Good times!
