Black Student Union Makes Demands to Destroy History at BYU

Published

on

In one of the latest moves to erase American history, a number of Brigham Young University students are demanding that all campus buildings be renamed.

They are calling for this action to be taken on the grounds of removing “racist and xenophobic” history.

The BYU Black Student Union led the charge by sending a letter to President Russell Nelson of The Church of Latter-day Saints, the owner of BYU, demanding that campus buildings be unnamed. The union asserts that many of the individuals and names memorialized on campus “permitted discriminatory policies and perpetuated racist practices, they laid bricks for the injurious present we experience in our Black bodies.”

Sergei Kelley of Campus Reform reported that the letter lists off the names and memorials of leaders in the LDS church that must be “unnamed” with the aim of acknowledging the “pain in our history” and offering an opportunity for the church to atone for its allegedly evil ways.

Students at BYU have already manifested their opposition to statues and building names. Per a previous Campus Reform report in June, Brigham Young’s statue was vandalized after agitators spray-painted the word “racist” across the statue. In addition, vandals spray-painted a red “X” on the sign of the Abraham Smoot Administration Building.

In a letter directed to the NAACP, the Black Student Union petitioned it to hold the university accountable.

“We unequivocally condemn the honoring and memorializing of slave masters, segregationists, and proponents of slavery on our campus.”

In its “Declaration of Grievances,” the Black Student Union urged the NAACP to help out in its campaign to rename buildings.

“We unequivocally condemn the honoring and memorializing of slave masters, segregationists, and proponents of slavery on our campus.,” the letter to the NAACP declared.

The Black Student Union is seeking to rename all buildings and programs, in order to make sure that no figures are “singled-out” or “defamed.”

Some of the individuals commemorated on campus were advocates against interracial marriages, held slaves, and asserted “negroes are not entitled to the full blessings of the Gospel,” according to a report from The Salt Lake Tribune.

In response to the calls to rename campus buildings and programs, the university created a committee to investigate racial disparities at the university, according to a report from The Salt Lake Tribune.

NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor

Published

on

On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.

Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.

Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.

The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.

Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.

Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.

Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
