The University of California Los Angeles has launched an inquiry into a teacher for reading aloud Martin Luther King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” because the civil rights document includes the n-word.
The email also faulted the postdoctoral lecturer for showing a documentary to the class in which a lynching is described and not stopping the presentation when students complained.
I propose something along the lines of what Eisenhower and Patton did when they required German villagers adjacent to concentration camps to visit them and that, if I recall correctly, the then new Wester German Government and the US Occupation Government required all employees to watch concentration camp ghettoes. US college students should be required to observe the devastation cause by their military in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc.
