Oh, for Pete’s sake…

Campus Correspondent Ethan Cai asked George Washington students if they supported changing “offensive” crosswalk lights because the “walk” sign only portrays an image of a white man.

How far will this movement of diversity and inclusion go? Where will the line be drawn for what is considered offensive?

“As we students cross the street, we are told by the symbol of a white man when it is okay to cross,” the fake petition stated. “Many students from diverse backgrounds, including individuals of color, gender fluid individuals, and LGBTQA+ individuals, feel oppressed by this.”

By signing the petition, students “vehemently urge[d] the University to consider changing the crosswalk signs.”

    In the UK we have a red man for not crossing and a green man for crossing. As for these students, this kind of thinking has to be some kind of mental illness.

    Already a “thing” in Australia. https://bit.ly/2KylMtm

    I love it! Probably don’t even realize they’re being trolled. Lolololololol.

    …and thus the state of mind of millenials and their educators these days. Then we wonder why the xountry is going to hell in a hand cart.

    It’s obvious isn’t it ? If you’re not white , we don’t care if you get hit by a bus

    I think that’s a great idea too. I’m totally for that. Lets make the crossing sign a 350 lb black lesbian woman dragging her fat ass across the street. That would be totally lit.

    I’m just eaten up with my “White privilege”! /sarc

    I can see how a “white man” would be offensive to many people (people, is that offensive?).

    A “red” “man” would be offensive for two reasons…

    Red is offensive to the “native” inhabitants…. Look at all the flak given to Washington Red Skins.
    A man is a gender-offensive identification. It would require an LGBTQRSTXYZ icon – whatever that would be.

    Maybe the day will come when white males are such a small minority that somebody will begin to stand up for us. Note: I don’t plan on living long enough to see that day.

      Nah, everybody wants the cracker-ass crackers dead; even about half of their own population.

    I just saw an article where the light is an hourglass shape that is animated and also changes colors-green amber red. Pretty cool.

    Toilet paper is white, so don’t use it then.

    Libnuts won’t be happy until they’ve created a yugoslvia here….and that didn’t end well.

    • FaCubeItches says:

      You misspelled “Haiti”. The populace of the Yugoslavian successor states is still pretty honky.

    Replacing the white man with the word “walk” is another option, equally offensive. It presumes the pedestrian can read and comprehend the message (most graduates of our expensive school system cannot read), non-English speakers will be triggered as the sign is in English (there should be 1200 plus translations to be fair), a cripple in a wheelchair cannot walk so maybe “roll” or “get your fat ass pushed” could be options. All offensive to someone. Red is OK for not proceeding but green will stigmatize and trigger those with color blindness.

    In other words if that sign offends you, stay on the sidewalk or just go f@#k yourself, rational society has no need for you.

    Good idea but I suspect fat women might be offended by an hourglass figure (no doubt).
    Wait until the food supply runs out – then this BS nonsense will end real fast.

    • oldawg says:

      Along with about 90% of the dumdasses pushing it. As an old white cracker I say do away with all the damn signs and then everyone is equal in getting run over by a truck.

  14. Butch says:

    Switch the lights around. When the vehicular traffic has right of way, the walk sing goes on. Fucking commies can’t be pleased, so begin running them over.

  15. Aggie says:

    Well then, let’s change all the “walk” man lights in America then – to Orange.

Play nice.
