PC Madness At GWU – Ban Stick Figure Crosswalk “White Man”
WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 13, 2019) – Students at George Washington University [GWU] – for many years voted the most politically active U.S. campus – were eager to sign a petition to ban the stick figure used on lighted crosswalk signs on campus because they feel oppressed by it.

The student body also recently voted to ban the word "Colonials" for the school's many sports teams because it was also seen as oppressive, even though it was the American colonials who fought against and defeated the British who colonized us, says public interest law professor John Banzhaf, who pronounces this as the ultimate PC madness.

The students are upset because, in the words of the petition, "we are told by the symbol of a white man when it is okay to cross," and "many students from diverse backgrounds, including individuals of color, gender fluid individuals, and LGBTQA+ individuals, feel oppressed by this."

Many students signed the petition which "vehemently urge[d] the University to consider changing the crosswalk signs."

Even more astonishing, one of my fellow faculty members also expressed support for this ridiculous demand, says Banzhaf, who has taught at GWU for many years, and helped to beat back earlier equally ridiculous student demands after Donald Trump was elected president.

One student complained that the stick figure evidenced a "lack of representation"; presumably hoping that somehow it could be replaced by a black female LGBTQA+ stick figure.

Another proclaimed that it would be "one step" towards creating a "more welcoming campus environment" on a campus which already has a "diversity and inclusion education director" and conduct numerous diversity and inclusion programs - which some call indoctrination.

This is the same campus, Banzhaf notes, that banned any display of an ancient religious symbol, and actually suspended and almost expelled a student for displaying it, because one student momentarily mistook it for a Nazi swastika.

The irony, says Banzhaf, is that even the display of a genuine Nazi swastika is protected by guarantees of free speech. He notes that, under the president's new executive order, the university could face a fund cutoff for just such an action.

No doubt these same students will feel even more oppressed when they find out that the petition was simply a joke, and a test to see how thoroughly the campus has been infected by extreme political correctness, says Banzhaf.

These kids need to grow up and get a Job. start paying rent and see how important this is.

Do I feel oppressed by the symbol of the red man because he's an attacking savage and I feel threatened. ?

Maybe the cost of changing these signals should come out of GWU tuition.

Universities are supposed to teach how to think. This one is failing miserably.

I wonder what color they would purpose that the figure be? Black wouldn't work as white students might object, maybe rainbow colors or a stick-figure with both male and female genitalia? They generally use stick figures instead of words because not everyone speaks English & signs are too small for various foreign names. Maybe just do away with the signs and cause more CHAOS, which is what the libs seem to want to create anyway!

The entire thing was a joke, and in jest asking for a rather innocuous act. It is doubtful that many who signed gave a damn one way or another. “Hey would you sign my petition to change crosswalk signs” sure why not? The thing you can count on is the over the top outrage by the nutter right over a silly joke and crackpot claims it is due to some sort of dooms day societal failure. The madness isn’t PC it is the touchy ness of the nutter snowflakes reacting to it.

Just what they need a black female against a black back drop and what do you get a black back drop is all no one will know when it is OK to cross the street.

What's wrong with Colonials? It's a necessary step; you go from Lt. Colonial, to Colonial then to General.

Prove that your brethren aren’t climbing toward ‘the pinnacle of stupid’. I saw nothing anywhere about this being a joke.
