"In an unrelated story, the Texas-based H-E-B grocery store chain, previously known as H.E. Butt Grocery, named for its founder, Howard "Harry" Edward Butt Sr., rejected an offer to merge with Whole Foods today, as they did not want to be listed on the stock exchange as Butt-Whole Foods."

More and more this crap sounds like a bunch of sheltered privileged kids wanting to be able to say that they made a difference or were part of something. Idiots.

Lynchburg, TN - I like and I am ok with.

Lynchburg, VA - It is offensive.

Your thoughts?

We need an Official Dumbass College Kids thread where all these gems can be housed together.

Quote:
Students want school officials to either rename the building entirely or add Lynch's first name and middle initial, saying the word recalls the public executions of black men by white mobs in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
I thought these kids espoused inclusion, why are they excluding the whites, women, Mexicans and Chinese that were victims of lynchings? Hypocrites? Ignornant of history? Pandering to stereotypes?

Personally, I find these buildings and foundations and other things with people's full names annoying. The Oliver M. Stuyvesant And Clarice Ann Matthews-Stuyvesant Charitable Trust. I swear it adds 2% of time to every PBS broadcast. I get that it's about proper recognition, but the full name gets used so rarely.

Change the name of this bldg to include the guy's first name, and then watch how many that demanded the name change go right back to saying "meet me in front of the Lynch building after class".

How long until buildings named after men are erased?

Screw it. No more naming of buildings. Just numbers. Except for the offensive numbers.

I'm sorry but the number 1 reminds me of the 1%, where my family resides. The guilt is triggering me, I need to postpone taking this test or I'll get you fired.

Why when I was a student no one listened to me? And now kids also get laid by their semi hot looking teachers. I wish I was younger.

Every time I walk through the hospital where I work (and I'm sure it's most buildings, not just my hospital) I that none of our patient rooms end in 13. We go straight from 5012 to 5014. Yay for superstitions.



Oh, and:
