Black Dishwasher at Yale University Loses Job After Shattering "Racist, Very Degrading" Stained-Glass Panel

Black Dishwasher at Yale University Loses Job After Shattering "Racist, Very Degrading" Stained-Glass Panel

Why does a distinguished northeastern University like Yale have a dining and residence hall named after John C Calhoun, a rigid pro-slavery ideologue? (Calhoun graduated from Yale, and became VP of the USA, but still ...)

And they have a stained glass window of slaves picking cotton? C'mon. Why not have the campus synagogue called Temple Beth Hitler?

I don't blame the employee for this one. This makes me angry enough to have done it myself, and I'm a boring old suburban white dude.
