NightSide - Yale English Class “Too White”?

NightSide - Yale English Class “Too White”?

An anonymous petition is circulating around Yale that is calling for the class “Major English Poets” to be “de-colonized”. The petition claims that the class, which covers writers like Shakespeare and Chaucer, is too white, and doesn’t include enough diversity, making some of the students feel unwelcome in the class. Do you think the students have a point and that the school should work harder to include authors from all backgrounds? Or are they out of touch, too easily offended, and unprepared to face the real world?
