It had to go all the way to a federal court!! Something that children given a little description of what is happening, would have seen through. We are really experiencing the dangerous elements of the right in these times.

"A Spokane County sheriff’s sergeant was fired Thursday after an internal investigation found he spoke of killing black people and sexually harassed a female deputy on his helicopter crew. Sgt. Jeff Thurman, an 18-year veteran of the sheriff’s office who worked in Spokane Valley, was accused of starting a phone conversation with another deputy by asking if he was “ready to kill” black people, using a racial slur. Thurman was off duty in December 2016 when he placed the call to the other deputy, who answered the call using a Bluetooth speaker while parked beside a third deputy in a separate patrol car, the sheriff’s office said. Both deputies who heard Thurman’s remark were on duty at the time. Thurman was scheduled to appear Thursday afternoon for a meeting known as a Loudermill hearing, a due-process requirement for public employees. He did not show up, however, and instead provided a written statement to the sheriff’s office. Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich said Thurman’s employment was terminated after the scheduled meeting time passed. Thurman has 10 days to appeal the decision."

Only 50K...? I mean, it's a healthy start... but shouldn't they probably establish a 'floor' of say 10K, and not a 'ceiling'...? There will be lots a people still left with balances above the 50K mark... Seriously, I know people who should be retirees (but unfortunately they still have to work) who still have student loan debt well above 50K... 60K and more. They'd still have balances...
"“The Task Force finds that the University’s mission, intent, and responsibility to create an inclusive and diverse learning environment far outweighs the value of retaining the name simply to preserve BGSU’s limited part in preserving the Gish sisters’ place in film history. We feel strongly that their place in and contributions to US cultural history are not dependent on a naming at Bowling Green State University.”
Translated from doubletalk, this means, once again: ‘The connection to Lillian Gish was useful to us in a different era, now the cultural and political winds have shifted and we’re throwing her to the wolves.’
There is nothing progressive about such shabby operations. It is illusory and self-deluding to imagine the renaming of the Gish Film Theater represents some “victory” over past injustice. It is a fantasy victory. The self-satisfied petty-bourgeois layers who pursue these issues are seeking, among other things, to divert themselves and others from the burning questions of social inequality, poverty and war. They are also hostile to the complexities that art inevitably presents and represents.
Shielding students from historical difficulties and contradictions contributes to the prevailing retrograde intellectual and cultural climate. In the end, such maneuvers only protect the status quo. ... See MoreSee Less
