[Xmca-l] Re: Halloween, Yale and other complications



In case anyone's interested, I recently was a guest on the Atlanta NPR station, talking about political correctness (the implicit theme of David's article on Yale).
2015 WABE (NPR) 90.5FM Atlanta: College PC Culture: It’s Not About Offending But Respecting http://news.wabe.org/post/college-pc-culture-it-s-not-about-offending-respecting

And so it goes with Halloween... It seems that this holiday is becoming a college issue. Here, a college master (I never liked the term because of the slavery implications it has), got in trouble because it did something different than the other university president: she asked the students to think independently. And the students were, of course, disgusted because of the request.
