Yes, Yale was named in honor of a slave trader.
We are living in a time of slavery to "woke". It is our master, and it's rules are whatever the purveyors of "woke" decide they are. As always, consistency is NOT an issue!
My guess is that Yale's name will not be changed because ... well, just BECAUSE! For "reasons" similar to why ancient charges against Brent Kavenaugh are very very serious, and similar charges against Joe Biden are scurrilous and of no interest at all.
What do I think? As anyone that follows me knows, as long as we live in the age of "PC, tribalism, Post Modernism, BLM, etc", it doesn't matter what I think. I'm not in power in any manner -- "truth" is whatever the latest pronouncement from the "woke" is.
