    Yes.....Yale University...was founded by an actual slave seller who murdered slaves who did not obey him.....

    Should we close Yale University, void any and all degrees awarded by the university, and sieze their assets to be given to the descendants of slaves?

    Elihu Yale - Wikipedia

    The records of this period mention a flourishing slave trade in Madras, a trade in which Yale participated and from which he profited.

    He enforced a law that at least ten slaves should be carried on every ship bound for Europe.

    In his capacity as judge he also on several occasions sentenced so-called "black criminals" to whipping and enslavement.

    When the demand began to increase rapidly, the English merchants even began to kidnap young children and deport them to distant parts of the world, very much against their will.

    Yale isn't a revered institution because the founder had slaves. Those statues represent people who went to war against the United States to protect slavery. If any of them have something to honor them for other than being an enemy combatant, I'm pretty sure their statue won't come down.

    No, it's revered in certain circles because it turns out an idiot product, perfect for spreading Democrat nonsense.

    What about the Yale secret society of "Skull and Bones" which is a Nazi secret society?

    Slavery was a secondary issue as it pertains to the Civil War that was pushed by outside influences like the Jesuits, France and England and the bankers that financed them. IMHO, if the organic Constitution really represented what it claimed to be all about that was passed in 1783? Slavery should have ended the day it was ratified. The ironic thing about all of this is that we all ended up being indentured debt slaves to the bankers that own and run USA.INC. We are "chattel" and surety against the debt while it is our sweat equity/labor that moves their fiat currency.

    Like I said, Yale isn't what it is because it's founder had slaves and treated them the way laws allowed him to.
