Well at least if they're dead they can still vote Democrat.

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.
