Those Cowardly Tigers


In a gosh attempt at virtue signaling, the Clemson University Board of Trustees has unanimously voted to remove John C. Calhoun’s name from the school’s Honors College. This decision came after former Tiger football stars Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins joined a petition campaign which declared: “To maintain the name [on the Honors College] is to convey Clemson University’s continued indifference toward a history of institutional racism and state-sanctioned violence against Black life.”

Hopkins further stated that “I felt this oppressive figure during my time at Clemson and purposely do not mention the University’s name before NFL games because of it.”  Watson averred that “Clemson University should not honor slave owner John C. Calhoun in any way. His name should be removed from all University property and programming.”
