毁了林肯雕像,美国还剩什么?(耶鲁签名)

(2020-06-19 09:10:26) 下一个

美国进入疯狂的除四旧运动,有人讨论是否应该拿掉在波士顿的林肯雕像。你们可能觉得这很荒唐吧?一位为了解放黑奴自己命都赔上的美国伟大总统,怎么可能是种族主义者?要求撤销林肯雕像的理由是,在那雕像中,林肯拿着他著名的《解放黑奴宣言》站着,但是他面前的黑人是半跪的,这是对黑人的不尊敬,必须铲除。现在雕塑家要注意了,任何雕像都要给所有人物同等的待遇,个个都需要气宇轩昂。

在圣路易斯的公园里,已经将伟大的航海家哥伦布的雕像移除。我们在西班牙塞维利亚看过宏伟教堂中的哥伦布灵柩,没有哥伦布那次冒死的航行,我们都不可能生活在美洲大地。

现在圣路易斯华盛顿大学的建筑评论家写文章,讨论圣市森林公园艺术博物馆前的路易九世的雕像是否也应该移除。这可是圣市名字的来源,法国众多路易国王中唯一被教皇封圣的。森林公园的这雕像让人回忆起,圣路易斯在1904年举办世界博览会和奥运会的辉煌时光。从这位专家的文章所述,似乎路易九世的雕像这次可以幸免,因为他的年代是13世纪而不可能涉及黑奴,路易九世的罪行是迫害穆斯林和犹太人,他在第二次十字军东征时战死在北非的突尼斯。以后穆斯林和犹太人造反,才有可能毁这座雕像,反正这样下去美国将永无宁日。

另外,凭此逻辑,加州的华人为什么不对斯坦福大学采取行动?当年斯坦福是《排华法案》的急先锋和对华人存在严重歧视的家伙。

现在附上呼吁签名保住耶鲁警察局的Petition, 任何人都可以签,不需要与耶鲁有关系。请愿信写的很好,我读了每个字,耶鲁是世界性的大学,吸引无数各方游客,良好的校园安全对全球访问者也是保护,况且我们这样做,还会为确保其他美国大学的校园警察局提供舆论支持,谢谢你们了!

“请签名,请转发,有Twitter,FB,IG的请转发????????,任何人都可以签名

Do NOT Defund/Dismantle Yale Police Department

Given the recent tragedies and pain in our country caused by police violence, it is understandable to argue to defund and dismantle police departments nationwide. But, when arguing to take away the power and resources of the Yale Police Department (YPD), or any college police department, it places the students and the community at risk.

Yale University is a renowned institution known for its prestigious academics. In addition to providing a second home to its diverse student body, the university holds a responsibility of safety and protection to any visitors on campus. Yale regularly holds large international conferences, summer programs for high school students, and is a daily destination for tourists and prospective students. When anyone steps on campus--regardless of race--they deserve to feel protected and not have to worry about public safety. Parents deserve a peace of mind knowing that their children are safe, and students deserve to spend their time working and making memories instead of worrying for their lives.

Unfortunately, there have been incidents over the past few years regarding discrimination and unfair treatment to the Black community. Of course, we would not encourage the continuation of YPD if that meant that particular students and community members were at a greater threat with its existence. Furthermore, we would not endorse the funding for YPD if it did not directly benefit the campus. According to the 2018 YPD Annual Security Report, the top crimes reported and dealt with by the YPD were burglary, rape, fondling, and stalking--all especially prominent crimes on college campuses, New Haven and beyond. While Yale Security is able to patrol campus, monitor blue phones, and provide rides to students, it is ultimately the YPD that handles more serious matters that college students unfortunately face (YPD officers also receive specialized training for the possibility of mass shootings on campus).

Logistically, YPD is a necessity: right now, there are not enough officers from the New Haven Police Department (NHPD) to oversee New Haven as well as Yale’s campus. According to the current YPD Assistant Chief Anthony Campbell in an interview with Yale Daily News, there are “not enough officers in New Haven to deal with the calls in the city.” The addition of thousands of calls and responsibilities would not be realistic. The NHPD officers do not have the training nor experience necessary to monitor and serve a college campus. If they oversee Yale, then it may result in more harm than good.

The responsibilities of current campus security measures and YPD do not overlap enough to dismantle and defund YPD. Furthermore, it is not feasible for the current NHPD to also oversee Yale--there is a lack of resources and special training needed to serve college students. We need a safe campus, and need to work with the current department to make steps towards justice. We will remember and learn from past incidents to ensure Yale is a home for all.

博主辛苦了。我个人觉得耶鲁没了警察局对耶鲁在读的精英们不一定是件坏事。因为那是左派的摇篮,没了警察局,极左造成的后果就出来了,这说不定能唤醒中了左毒的大学生们。至少可能变得稍微清醒一点。

同感!不知多大的代价,小左,大左,极左才能反思,清醒!

UC Berkeley removes racist John Boalt’s name from law school

John Henry Boalt was instrumental in legitimizing anti-Chinese racism and in catalyzing support for passage of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 — the nation’s first immigration ban on a specific group of people solely on the basis of race or nationality. Yet, until 2017, his views weren’t well known on campus.

commonSense123 回复 悄悄话 赞好文!据说这两天,Oragen的一座华盛顿像也被砸了。极左派要砸掉整个美国系统。但还没想好,砸掉后下一步咋办呢。show me 州的年青参议员好力表现不错。好几位和党大佬也开始立场暧昧了。早上听电台里老美时评,60年代反越战开始,大学里极左势力就开始处心积虑搞极左教育,50+年的积累,现在瓜熟蒂落的恶果就是cancel culture-米国文革。您应该深有体会吧。
