With everything going on in the world, as is often the case, I am turning to something not on anyone's new screen.
History. Truth. Do they mean anything?

On college campuses across America students are attending classes in buildings named for this or that historical figure. Some we have heard of, some we have not. Even the one's we have heard of, however, somehow are not quite the same person we might believe them to be.
Would you be interested in attending classes in Adolph Hitler Hall? Probably not. How about Ivan the Terrible Annex? Maybe Leopold II auditorium? Get the picture.
Well, for those of you at universities across this white supremacist land of ours, you are doing just that. You may know it. You probably do not.
You should though.
Maybe its time you took a look into who in being honored, and why.
Maybe it is time you do something about it.
The following bit of enlightenment is from, drum roll please, The Crimson White which is the student newspaper at the University of Alabama.
I know you are wondering. The newspaper derived its name from the team colors of UA athletics teams, crimson and white.
By the way, The newspaper's first black editor was Joseph Bryant, who served in 2000-01.
