Now Princeton Students calling themselves Black Justice League are going After Woodrow Wilson: Maybe another Liberal President will Lose his Job?

If I were a liberal dean or president at one of these Ivyies I would be running scared.
Members of a group calling themselves the Black Justice League walked out of their classes late Wednesday morning and assembled at Nassau Hall, where they were met by Princeton president Christopher Eisgruber. The students presented a list of demands inspired by similar lists that have been seen at Yale University, the University of Missouri, and elsewhere.

“WE DEMAND the university administration publicly acknowledge the racist legacy of Woodrow Wilson and how he impacted campus policy and culture,” the students’ demands say.

“We also demand that steps be made to rename Wilson residential college, the Woodrow Wilson School of Public Policy and International Affairs, and any other building named after him. Furthermore, we would like the mural of Wilson to be removed from Wilcox Dining Hall.”

The students called on Eisgruber to sign their list of demands, and said until he does so they will occupy Nassau Hall, for days if needed.

Wilson was a pretty racist guy from what I can gather so maybe they have a point but they are really going to sit in on this poor guys office until he cowtows to them? What would be wrong with covering the mural or posting signs on campus highlighting how racist Wilson was? I guess that sort of change is too slow for these students. 
What is laughable is that they are at Princeton which is one of the top schools in the world. I'm not sure how they are marginalized being there? In any case I wonder if this President will show how wimpy he is and give in to them. My money is on he will be as spine-less as the Missouri losers were and resign in disgrace.

Also I guess you can figuratively form a Black Justice League as well. You have the leader be Cyborg (he led the Titans so he has experience,) then have Black Lightning, Steel, John Stewart Green Lantern, and Mr Terrific (actually he may make a better leader though.) Then you can add Dr. Midnight, and Vixen to have black women on the group. I had to actually search for black female DC superheros so maybe that is an injustice that needs to be cleared up going forward.
