This is part ten of a continuing series, background�here. Previous drawings can be found here,�here, and�here, and a billboard for the other six�here. This appears in the classroom and office building stairwell nearest my office, and has been left up for months.
I am not interested, for those who have asked, in having this display taken down. It's not my job to decide what the university wants to present to students, staff and visitors (read: parents and incoming freshmen visiting campus for orientation). I would rather have this material out there for people to see, as it is my opinion that this is what the campus views as part of its function.
Perusing the Forbidden Library list of books includes books removed for being racially insensitive, such as Huckleberry Finn, To Kill a Mockingbird or the Little House books.
