Then quit Harvard

From the Washington Post:
The crest of Harvard Law School displays three sheaves of wheat, arranged on a shield. The design is also the coat-of-arms for Isaac Royall Jr., who through his estate helped found the school. Another part of Royall’s legacy, however, is that he was a slaveholder. [Snip] some students are now calling attention to the crest, according to the Harvard Crimson. The student newspaper reports that a small group has set up a Facebook group and is looking to do more — including advocating for the crest’s removal.
Here is an idea: Leave.

You really want to be big badass Social Justice Warriors and neo-abolitionists? Then make a damned sacrifice and leave.

Thankfully, John Quincy Adams had no time for such foolishness. Instead of protesting a crest, he graduated from Harvard, and worked for justice. After his presidency, he went on to speak out against slavery in Congress -- when it was against the rules -- and won United States v. The Amistad.

Best post-presidency of any president, by the way.
