A red painted statute of Bring'em Young says it is time.

Hell yes, BYU should be renamed, right after Yale U. is renamed for someone who wasn’t a slave trader.

SVU shows BYU the way...
Southern Virginia University swiftly apologized and removed the name on its main academic building this month after administrators learned the man it was named for had engaged in “explicit, public, proactive” advocacy of white supremacy.

The university also declared Juneteenth a new campus holiday, cancelling classes and suspending all other activities on Friday.

SVU inherited Durham Hall and the rest of the Southern Seminary campus in Buena Vista, Virginia, when its board of directors purchased the school in 1996 and turned it into an independent, private university catering to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The academic building was named for Robert Lee Durham when it was completed in 1940 while he was the president of the Southern Seminary.

SVU administrators said they were unaware of Durham’s racist views and actions until after they released a statement condemning racism on June 2 in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

That changed the following day when an SVU alum responded to the statement on the school’s Facebook page.

“While we are at it, would y’all be open to renaming Durham Hall since it was named for a virulent racist who even wrote a novel about how race mixing would destroy America...,” wrote Colin Smith, who now is a student at the American University School of International Service.

Brooks gives examples of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints honouring White Supremacy...
There are lots of examples, unfortunately, starting with the Abraham O. Smoot administration building. He was one of the first trustees of BYU. He owned slaves and was probably influential in convincing Brigham Young to secure Utah as a slave-owning state. He also bore false testimony to LDS Church President John Taylor to undermine Elijah Able’s ordination.

But there’s also the J. Reuben Clark Law School. He advocated for racial segregation of the blood banks in Utah. And the chemistry building is named after Ezra Taft Benson, who was openly segregationist, and used his time at the pulpit in General Conference in 1968 to preach against racial integration, an address that Deseret Book later published in full.
