Cleveland State Students Want Name of SCOTUS Judge Removed From College of Law

Cleveland State Students Want Name of SCOTUS Judge Removed From College of Law

“served as the fourth chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court”

The college of law is named for John Marshall, who owned slaves so they’re trying to cancel him.

Campus Reform reports:

Students want to cancel this Supreme Court Chief Justice

Cleveland State University’s (CSU) Board of Trustees is set to meet Tuesday to discuss a university-wide policy for “space, unity, and entity naming” as students are campaigning to remove John Marshall from the law school.

Marshall College of Law was named after John Marshall, who served as the fourth chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Marshall held that position in 1803 when the Supreme Court established the “principle known as judicial review” in Marbury v. Madison. 

Marshall, however, was also a slave owner, which is why the campus group Students Against Marshall (S.A.M.) wants the name removed from the college of law.

The policy, if approved, will set guidelines for “evaluating names, now and in the future,” Cleveland 19 reports.

A S.A.M. spokesperson told Campus Reform that the board declined to vote before the semester was over, referencing the May 17 meeting date.

“We are disappointed but not surprised about the board declining to vote prior to commencement,” the spokesperson said.

Dear students:

Shut up and get back to class. Or, find another college.

What a screwed up world we live in when we realize that Netflix now does a better job of managing outrageous dissent than our higher education system.

In short order they will be out of school and xryibg they can’t pay back their student loans due to no marketable skills.

There is an easy and simple response to this. Get yourself back to class and shut up. If you don’t like it, you can leave.
