Public School Teacher Demands School Change It's Name

No, the school is not currently named after a Confederate hero. I told you once the low-hanging fruit got stale and/or picked, the activist historians would be reaching higher. Didn't believe me, did you?
Roosevelt Middle School is getting a new building and new footprint — and at least one of its teachers thinks it also deserves a new name. Jenoge Khatter, a 30-year-old U.S. history teacher, believes it’s way past time for the school, named after 26th President Theodore Roosevelt, to honor some other person of history. Khatter says Roosevelt, for all of his accomplishments, was a racist [blah, blah, blah] . . .
And why not? He's simply putting "memory studies" into shoe leather. Just remember, this is not about history, it's about social justice and being politically correct. More here.

If this guy's a history teacher, you'd think he'd know that Theodore Roosevelt hosted Booker T. Washington for dinner at the White House (and got ripped for it by racists).

Eugene Skinner, the founder and namesake of Eugene, Oregon, was Assistant Postmaster under President Andrew Johnson. Pres. Johnson was, by modern standards, a racist and, thus, Eugene Skinner is tainted by those ideas. The name of the town should be changed.

These people can't think past their noses. There is no existence beyond their bubble. Consequences be damned, they believe they and their generation are the center of the universe.
