Berkeley Law School drops Boalt name over racist legacy

UC Berkeley removed the name ’Boalt Hall’ from a building of its law school over the racist past of Oakland attorney John Boalt. The university said Boalt was ’instrumental in legitimizing anti-Chinese racism and in catalyzing support for the passage of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, the nation’s first immigration ban on a specific group of people solely on the basis of race or nationality.’

Leftist trying to erase history is pathetic. Comparing a person from history to today's standards is pathetic. Leftist are simpletons. Berkeley is not the center of free speech any longer. Up is down and down is up.
