Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford has been nominated by faculty for the University of North Carolina Distinguished Alumna award.
People in the UNC community are already circulating a petition supporting Ford’s nomination for the prize. Ford’s allegations against Kavanaugh were not backed up by any concrete evidence and did not stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the Supreme Court.
Ford was nominated for the award by a professor at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, where she earned an undergraduate degree in experimental psychology in 1988.
In a letter obtained by The Hill, Jennifer Ho, a professor in the university’s Department of English and Comparative Literature, said Ford did “something that was extraordinary” earlier this year when “she told the truth about a sexual assault she experienced when she was fifteen years old at the hands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.”
Ford alleged that she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh while they were at a high school party in the 1980s. Kavanaugh has strongly denied the allegations.
The Hill passage ends
Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s yearbooks at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill show rampant and wild drinking by the University of North Carolina students, with numerous photographs of beer bongs on campus plus risqué costume parties, bikini pageants, and a white person in blackface.
Big League Politics has obtained photographs from the “Yackety Yack” yearbooks from 1986, 1987, and Ford’s graduation year of 1988. The yearbooks are stored in the University of North Carolina archives.
Ford was a member of the Kappa Delta sorority, listed in the Greek organization for her last two years on campus.
The yearbooks include dictionary definitions for terms including “Beer” and “Beer Bong.”
“Christine Blasey Ford was a classmate of mine at UNC. We graduated in 1988. I want to ask Christine if she remembers partying at Trolls, drinking at He’s Not Here. Hooking up with guys at Henderson Street. Eating at Time Out. Remember those days, Christine? Tell us about them,” wrote PJ Media writer DC McAllister on Twitter.
Here is the gallery of Christine Blasey Ford’s fellow students in her college yearbooks:
City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”
There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.
The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”
“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.
Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.
The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.
Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”
Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.
Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
