Princeton Students Demand School Pay Slavery Reparations, Abolish Police Force
More than 400 current students and alumni from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University in New Jersey have signed a letter to the school's administration demanding, among other things, that the school pay slavery reparations and abolish the school's police force.
The new demands come amid the continued national uproar that began when Minneapolis criminal George Floyd was killed in police custody after video showed former officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on Floyd's neck.
In the letter ‚ÄĒ dated June 23 ‚ÄĒ which was addressed to the Board of Trustees, President Christopher Eisgruber, Acting Dean Mark Watson, and Deans Cecilia Rouse, Miguel Centeno, Karen McGuinness, and Elisabeth Donohue, the students and former students demanded that the school act against what they call ‚Äúthe slow and sudden violence that robs Black people of life.‚ÄĚ...

It's a great prayer JD, simple and to the point. And with things hotting up in the world, we will be asking the Lord for his help more and more. Thankfully it is only for a season, and the joys of heaven will be ours.
None of those 400 are or have ever been slaves therefore they don't qualify for reparations. Some sleazy politician could always right up a bill to shut them up but it word so that no one alive qualifies. But it'd be best to not even do that. Let them whine about a lack of brownies while they're hand is in the cookie jar. Childish.

It is surely an awful thing to discern the end result of a certain direction. How must the prophets have felt when giving out the word of God? Or when Jesus, coming into Jerusalem, sighed and wept when he foresaw the total destruction of the city and the carnage involved?
Even here in England, in fact, Britain as a whole, universities have gone down this ultra liberal path. Students have demanded statues be removed, like that of Cecil Rhodes in Oriel College, Oxford (the college has now decided it is going to be removed), LGBT and transgenderism is riding high,Islamic Societies are very powerful, racial quotas are in force, feminism is unbridled, (except when the feminists discover they have got to incorporate transgender ‚Äúwomen‚ÄĚ - biological men who wish to be women), and of course environmentalism, veganism, animal rights, pro-abortion is all very fashionable.
Professors and academic staff are threatened with discipline if they deviate from this new orthodoxy, and done already have to have security as their lives have been threatened!
