NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A Yale University business student is proposing renaming Whitney Avenue in New Haven. Robert Lucas, an MBA student, said the legacy of Eli Whitney should be studied, not celebrated. “Things won’t change unless someone speaks up,” Lucas said. Lucas is set to graduate this spring. He’s spent his time in New Haven getting to know the history of the area. “Eli Whitney’s principal legacy was the invention of the cotton gin, and that led to the expansion of slavery,” Lucas said. He’s hoping to rename the stretch of Whitney Avenue that runs through New Haven.


What next? Woke liberals will want to ban cotton.

Hey Robert Lucas, you want to change history? GO START YOUR OWN COUNTRY AND YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU LIKE. Damn snowflakes wanting to change history-has he forgotten that those who forget history are doomed to repeat it?

The New England liberals who were so anti-slavery rejoiced in the amount of cotton that came from the South for their textile mills after the gin was invented. And the mills were notably manned by workers who were treated little better than slaves.

Funny thing that non one wants to rename the Woodrow Wilson Bridge over the Potomac River between VA and MD despite the fact that Wilson was a racist and re-segregated the army. Oh, I forgot, Wilson was a one world progressive Democrat. I see how this works.

Since cotton is white it is obviously racist. Pound sand Bobby, you are an idiot. Let's ban the invention of silverware since it led to obesity.

Actually, Eli Whitney manufactured a huge array of precision made equipment. The cotton gin thing is overblown in simplistic 4th grade history books. And I doubt it had any effect on slavery. My wife's family, all white, always picked their own cotton, never had any slaves. Huge portions of the cotton industry was all working whites, not slaves. When Samuel Colt got a contract to make his first successful revolvers, he had Eli Whitney manufacture them because Whitney was a general precision manufacturing company. Whiney popularized the concept of parts so precisely made that they were interchangeable. Previously all precision machines were all hand fitted parts, not interchangeable. This racist hater is ignorant about actual history, as usual. Propaganda andwarped, simplified stories is NOT the same as actual history.

So, did this Bouchet guy ever do anything anybody knows about or really cares about? Celebrating him for being the first black to do something sounds a bit, how does one say...racist. That is, many men got their degrees there before him, so it's simply because of his race, right?

The African country of Tanzania reported its first-ever outbreak of Marburg disease, which has so far resulted in eight total cases and five deaths. The Ebola-related virus was also responsible for additional lab-confirmed illnesses stemming from a February outbreak in Equatorial Guinea, which has so far sickened nine patients, seven of which have died. In a statement issued earlier this week, the World Health Organization has said an additional 161 people — all considered “contacts” of those sickened — were being monitored for symptoms. “The efforts by Tanzania’s health authorities to establish the cause of the disease is a clear

The agency issued a series of tornado warnings in counties throughout the state. "Many in the MS Delta need your prayer and God's protection tonight," Gov. Tate Reeves said on Twitter.

The Louisville, Colorado City Council is facing harsh criticism after its recent proposal to ban the construction of new gas stations and auto service stations. Though council members say the ban is an effort to combat climate change, one local Republican spokesperson called it an abuse of power. If enacted, the ban would leave the 21,000 residents of Louisville with only six gas stations. A seventh would be permitted under the ordinance only if it were part of a large retail center. Charlie Danaher, the Republican spokesperson in Boulder County, Colorado, said on "Fox & Friends First" Thursday that the

A US contractor was killed on Thursday in Syria after a suspected Iranian-affiliated drone struck a facility housing US personnel in northeast Syria, the Pentagon said in a statement Thursday. Five US service members and an additional US contractor were wounded in the strike. “The intelligence community assess the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) to be of Iranian origin,” according to the statement. In response, President Joe Biden authorized a precision airstrike “in eastern Syria against facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC),” Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said in the statement.

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota House was moving Thursday toward strengthening the state's protections for children and their families who come for gender-affirming care by making Minnesota a “trans refuge state,” bucking a national backlash against transgender rights. Democratic Gov. Tim Walz signed an executive order two weeks ago to protect the rights of people from Minnesota and other states to receive gender-affirming health care in the state. The bill on which the House was slated to begin debate Thursday night covers much of the same ground, but supporters said a statute would provide stronger, more permanent protections. Passage

Republicans have stalled President Biden's nominee to run the Federal Aviation Administration on the grounds he lacks the necessary experience. The vote to confirm Denver International Airport CEO Phillip Washington to the position has been indefinitely delayed, Commerce Committee Chair Maria Cantwell announced Wednesday. "We are moving that to a future date, pending information that members have been seeking," Cantwell said. Cantwell did not elaborate on the information requested or which senators made the request. Biden announced his selection of Washington to head the FAA in July 2022 but the process has languished in the Senate amid concerns from Republicans

When Dianne Feinstein arrived in Washington in 1992, her home state of California was solidly purple and Republican Pete Wilson occupied the governor’s office. More than 30 years later, as the oldest member of Congress and California’s longest serving senator prepares to retire, her state is arguably the most reliably blue in the US. Feinstein’s protracted career as a senator also charts the rise of California as a political power player on Capitol Hill, whose 55 electoral votes – the largest block by far, with Texas and Florida as distant seconds – have helped guarantee a Democrat in the White House for six out of the last eight terms.

According to the outlet, the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) has scheduled the online seminar, titled "Holding the Weight on Whiteness," for Monday, March 27, for 4-6 pm. The event's landing page says the course "is about cultural humility and inclusion," and "will allow us to discuss how whiteness relates to privilege and identity, and how both become normalized and invisible."
