UW-Madison to Remove Racist Chamberlin Rock

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Even after they have removed all the statues of American giants from times past, the purge will continue. Social justice warriors will turn their wrath upon other objects — like the rock that is to be removed from the campus of University of Wisconsin–Madison because 100 years ago it was referred to by a racist name:

UW-Madison is moving forward on a plan to remove a boulder from Observatory Hill after calls from students of color who see the rock as a painful reminder of the history of racism on campus.

The 70-ton boulder is officially known as Chamberlin Rock in honor of Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president. But the rock was referred to at least once after it was dug out of the hill as a “niggerhead,” a commonly used expression in the 1920s to describe any large dark rock.

All dark rocks must be destroyed, or people might forget who is charge nowadays.

The Wisconsin Black Student Union called for the rock’s removal over the summer. President Nalah McWhorter said the rock is a symbol of the daily injustices that students of color face on a predominantly white campus.

Black militants bark “jump” and everyone else whimpers, “How high?” Yet we are required to believe that they are the piteous victims of racial injustice. Anyone who fails to comply with this belief is likely to get canceled like Chamberlin Rock.

Options under consideration for dealing with the rock include breaking it up and disposing of it, despite its “rich geological history.” The rock was carried by glaciers from far away. Estimates for the cost of removal range up to $75,000.

After the rock is removed, the Black Student Union’s focus will shift to generating ideas for how students of color can reclaim the space, such as installing a piece of art, McWhorter said.

A giant Black Power fist statue would be appropriate.

But wait… canceling the racist rock may not be that easy:

UW-Madison needs to secure approval from the Wisconsin Historical Society before removal begins because the rock is located near an effigy mound.

The first step requires UW-Madison to submit a request to disturb a catalogued burial site. All Native Tribes of Wisconsin are notified during the process, which can take 60 to 90 days and includes a 30-day comment period.

What if the native tribes decide that destroying the rock would be racist?
