Change name of J Reuben Clark Law School at BYU?

Post by SuperDell »

J Reuben was a rabid Anti - integration speaker. Vocal about inter racial marriage, referring to it as "a wicked virus".
Not to mention his refusal to provide letters to LDS members of Jewish heritage in Germany and German threatened countries so they could come to America for Asylum as Adolf Hitler was going after them in WWII Europe.

The Law School and BYU cling to the name - knowing what a Shiz this guy really was.

How about quoting or citing references made by that racist Apostle of Mormonism?

The Church has certainly run him over with the bus.

Clark's career outside of the LDS Church was largely in politics, but it's a law school, so it should be named for a prominent Mormon jurist or legal scholar. I would prefer: "The Dallin H. Oaks School of Law."

I like The Hamilton Burger College of Law. Pretty sure Hamilton Burger never formulated rebuttal arguments to the Brown v. Board of Education decision, plus he obeyed the Word of Wisdom in all his cases against Perry Mason.
