When you say ‘Wis-con-sin’, don’t say ‘N*gger-head’

The New York Times columnist called out the University of Wisconsin performative and ludacris act of Racial equity When it dragged off into the night a 50 ton Boulder, merely because 100 years ago a newspaper article referred to the rock by the offensive vernacular term of the day “N-word head”

Immediately I also thought of Michael Heizer and his “levitated mass” which is on display in Los Angeles. People got up early to watch the transport of a giant rock. Heiser’s father was an anthropologist who studied how ancient cultures would drag giant rocks to form sacred structures like Stonehenge.

Deyoung museum had an exhibit of indigenous New World Americans of the Americas and their colossal head as also did Los Lobos.

Don was it cool hand Luke movie where prisoners had to move piles of rocks back-and-forth just for punishment ?

Is there a no hiding place down there?
