    Schools Now Trying To Ban The Surname 'Lynch'

    Schools Now Trying To Ban The Surname 'Lynch' Because It's Offensive To Minorities
    Political correctness gone wild.


    A school board in Portland, Oregon decided to take up the gauntlet for intersectionality. No, they are not raising awareness about Sweden becoming the rape capital of Europe, Christian genocide in the Middle East, or the growing concern of terror in the world, instead they are allowing themselves to be triggered over the surname "Lynch."

    Just when you think that the social justice warrior insanity could not get any crazier, left-wing bureaucrats take it to a whole new level.

    On Wednesday, the Centennial School District, which covers Gresham and Southeast Portland, voted to change the name of local schools Lynch Meadows Elementary School, Lynch View Elementary School, and Lynch Wood Elementary School because the name Lynch is triggering special snowflakes, according to a Fox News report.

    The schools were named to honor the wealthy Lynch family, who donated the land to the local government for the purpose of building schools and public places. However, because the term "lynch mob" has a historically negative connotation associated with racism, there have been a few complaints from locals who are unfamiliar with the history of the area.
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    And if a statue can oppress you, then I submit that you have greater issues. - A West.

    I always found Loretta to be offensive anyway.

    In VA, they are looking for alternative names for Jefferson Davis Hwy because now it's deemed offensive.

    When do they go after the NAACP and that college fund for having trigger words in their titles? What are we now going to call those bright pencils that art students use? Maybe have an African nation change it's name since the spelling is easy to mispronounce. So many possibilities. Just don't let anyone mess with the Grand Tetons' name.
    "Is Uncle Monello homeless?"

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    I had to look that up lol....

    The name "Grand Teton" does not come without historical controversy. Grand Teton may come from early French Canadian explorers of the Northwest Company, who, upon seeing the three peaks of the range, called them "Les Trois Tetons," or "The Three Breasts."

    Your previous name would have shamed you.
