Amherst College in Massachusetts hosted Middlebury College professor Rebecca Kneale Gould for an event called "The Whiteness of Walden." Gould and the students discussed whether people should “still read, teach, and study the work of this ‘dead white man’ today.How nice. More liberal indoctrination and brainwashing BS.

I smelled strong arrogance from staff and students here. How funny, we didn’t smell it at Princeton or Yale.Anyway, the facilities are historical(old), and lots of steep slopes on campus.
