Reed Capitulates to PC Bullshit

This is repulsive.
It's not that I think there aren't any decent reasons for preferring world civilization courses to Western civilization courses. I'm of two minds about the question. But caving in to totalitarian PC bullshit in this way is inexcusable. Behold, the guardians of the Western intellectual tradition, helpless before the wrath of petulant, uneducated, extremist children. Those who know accept the judgement of those who don't know about what is worth knowing. Needless to say, the totalitarians aren't satisfied:
“...we're calling for the Humanities 110 faculty to pick different cities from the old syllabus for the first two semesters,” the post says [ambiguously]. “We feel that these cities should be outside of Europe, as reparations for Humanities 110's history of erasing the histories of people of color, especially black people."
Never, ever give in to the illiberal left. It never works. It's part of the "logic" of the PC left: they're never satisfied. Every victory is simply a beachhead in the next battle against Western civilization.
   I'm rather inclined to think that this isn't so much the fault of the students. They're idiots--but they're children. And: children who have been brainwashed by the PC left...undoubtedly including many of their past teachers. But there's no excuse for the capitulation of the faculty.

Yup, it's repulsive. And I'm a liberal who thinks non-Western history and culture should definitely be taught in every college/university.
