People have lost their minds. They will believe and accept any number of ridiculous ideas in the name of Progressivism and Political Correctness. The problem is that we have an entire generation or two of young people who have been mollycoddled and told how wonderful they are even though they have done nothing in their life to this point. Growing up they needed someone to flat-out tell them to F-off. It is a good thing I wasn't the one collecting the petition because I would have told them they are the most spoiled, pampered, overindulged, milquetoast generation America has ever had and I would have looked at them in disbelief, and asked them why they would be willing to sign such an absurd and ludicrous petition. My God, it's a good thing the Greatest Generation was there to fight fascism and totalitarianism in WWII. This generation can't do it. Instead of fighting the problem, many of them are the problem.https://www.dailywire.com/news/50582/watch-students-sign-petition-ban-oppressive-white-james-barrett?utm_medium=email&utm_content=%20081419%20-news&utm_campaign=position1

In Campus Reform's latest video, Campus Correspondent Ethan Cai asks students at George Washington University if they'd be willing to sign a petition calling for banning the iconic white stick figure in "walk" signals because they are "oppressive." Most of the students are happy to join the "inclusive" effort.
Part of the reason Campus Reform chose GW for its "offensive" and "oppressive" white walk signal guy petition is because of the students' recent vote to "remove and replace" the university's mascot, George the Colonial, which "is received as extremely offensive not only by students of the University, but the nation and world at large" because it "glorifies the act of systemic oppression," a petition calling for its removal claimed. The measure was passed in March by 54% of the students who voted.
In an attempt to test how deep concerns about "offense" and "oppression" go at GW, Campus Reform went undercover to the university to see if students would sign a new petition, this time calling for the banning of white stick figures in walk signals.
"As we students cross the street, we are told by the symbol of a white man when it is okay to cross," Campus Reform's faux petition reads. "Many students from diverse backgrounds, including individuals of color, gender fluid individuals, and LGBTQA+ individuals, feel oppressed by this." Students who sign the petition are supposedly letting the university know that they "vehemently urge the University to consider changing the crosswalk signs."
The result: many of the students, and even one university faculty member, are willing to put their signature on the phony petition. While some students seem to be on board because the alternatives provided by Campus Reform are "so cute" and "lit," most in the video made a point of saying they can "absolutely" see how someone would be offended by the "white man" telling them what to do and felt that changing the sign helped promote "diversity."

One guy pushed back, however, saying he was "ideologically opposed" to the idea. Video below via Campus Reform:
As for that petition calling for the replacement of George the Colonnial, after declaring that the "negatively charged figure of colonials has too deep a connection to colonization and glorifies the act of systemic oppression," the students who signed it offered the university some alternatives, including "Hippos," "Revolutionaries," or "Riverhorses."
