Cornell voted to stop calling its English Department the "English Department" in order to fight "structural forms of racism" | Not the Bee

When it came time to choose a category for this story "Can't Make It Up" was the natural frontrunner.

Yeah super-woke Cornell University has voted to stop calling its English Department the "English Department" because that is extremely racist. They want to separate "the conflation of English as a language and English as a nationality."

So they're renaming the department "the department of literatures in English."

I mean what can you say about this? I'll just leave you with some amazing quotes from faculty, courtesy of the Cornell Daily Sun:
