This is ridiculous:
CBS DFW – A school board in Oregon has voted to remove the name ‘Lynch’ from some school buildings after the name was deemed offensive.
According to reports, the Centennial School Board voted Wednesday night to change the names of three elementary schools in the district.
The move by the school board stemmed from concerns over use of what they deemed to be ‘offensive language.’
According to reports, school district officials said some students and local families had complained that the name “Lynch” made them think of the word, lynch, and the racist connotation behind it.
For now, Lynch Wood Elementary and Lynch Meadows Elementary schools will be temporarily changed to Wood Elementary and Meadows Elementary, pending new names for both schools, KGW in Portland reports. Lynch View Elementary will be changed to Patrick Lynch Elementary school.
The schools were named for the Lynch family that donated the land over a century ago.
Good grief it’s just a family name! It has nothing to do with the racist act of lynching black people.
If it weren’t for this Lynch family these schools would likely not even exist.
If nationwide school officials and administrators keep bending over backward to accommodate these triggered students, they are never going to grow up and stop wearing diapers. They are going suckling babies until someone has the audacity to slap reality into their triggered faces.
The Lynch family must be rolling over in their graves, not just at the name change, but at just how dumb and politically correct our society has become.
