70-ton “N***erhead” Should Be Removed From University Of Wisconsin
A group of University of Wisconsin students is demanding the removal of a huge boulder from campus due to its 95-year racist history.
The history of this stone dates back to 1925 when a geologist and former university president Thomas Crowder Chamberlin named the stone “n***erhead” in an article in the State Journal.
“The 70-ton boulder is officially known as Chamberlin Rock in honor of Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president. But the rock was referred to at least once after it was dug out of the hill as a “n***erhead,” a commonly used expression in the 1920s to describe any large dark rock,” The Wisconsin State Journal reported Wednesday.
The Wisconsin Black Student Union President Nalah McWhorter called the rock is a symbol of the daily injustices that students of color face on a predominantly white campus, reports Breitbart.
According to official information, he made a unanimous decision to move the boulder, but at the moment its future location and method of movement are unknown.
