American elite University: Princeton sweeps Woodrow Wilson's name

The American elite University of Princeton in the state of New Jersey shall remove the name of former President Woodrow Wilson from his prestigious school for Public Policy (similar to that of German political science) and a boarding school. The reason given was that the former President of the United States, due to his "racist thinking and racist policy" a "inappropriate name of donor" for each of the two facilities. The political Department of the Princeton University, will now be renamed the "Princeton School of Public and International Affairs".

The Democrat Wilson had held from 1902 to 1910, the role of the President of the American elite University before he won the 1912 presidential elections in the United States and by 1921, the 28. President of America was. A Board of Trustees of the Ivy League, a merged Commission of the American elite universities, has now decided that Wilson's Name should not be associated with the school. "Wilson's racism was significant and with consequences, even by the standards of his time," said the President of Princeton University, Christopher L. Eisgruber, in a statement. It further States: "He (Wilson, n. d. R.) segregated the Federal civil service, after he had already been integrated for decades, racially, and threw back to the United States in his pursuit of justice. He has not condoned the continued practice of racism in this country only, but it reinforced a practice that causes to hurt today.“

Princeton have not honored Wilson for his racism, did not let it stop, so Eisgruber more. "However, this is ultimately the Problem. Princeton is part of an America that valued racism to often be low, ignored or excused.“ This has allowed the Continuation of the "systems that discriminate against Black," said the President of the University.

Wilson, at whose Initiative the founding of the League of Nations happened, was also seen as a President who supported the southern States. He brought many southerners to political office, and tried, the choice of legal discrimination to the Black Fort. How to read in the grounds of the University, was for Wilson to continue as an advocate and supporter of Segregation, of racial segregation. He led within Federal agencies and in the military, in spite of protests by the race separation.
