The University of Wisconsin removed a 42-ton boulder from its Madison campus Friday after complaints from students of color who called the rock a symbol of racism. Chamberlin Rock, which had sat on Observatory Point since 1925, was named after Thomas Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president who served from 1887 to 1892. A 1925 Wisconsin State Journal article used the n-word as part of a nickname for the giant boulder. The Wisconsin Black Student Union last summer called for the rock to be removed from campus as one of a series of demands it said were aimed at seeking justice for Black students.

  1. Is this an onion article? How about making some actual changes that can help people’s lives instead of stuff like this?

  2. So a rock can be racist now? What’s next? Air is committing a hate crime and rain is playing the minority card? Wtf man.
