A petition has been started by Yale students aiming to discontinue its required 'Major English Poets' courses.
“We oppose the continued existence of the Major English Poets sequence as the primary prerequisite for further study,” the petition says.

“A year spent around a seminar table where the literary contributions of women, people of color, and queer folk are absent actively harms all students, regardless of their identity. The Major English Poets sequences creates a culture that is especially hostile to students of color,” it continues.
According to Fox, the students are taught the works of Geoffrey Chaucer, William Shakespeare, John Donne, John Milton and William Wordsworth.
But social justice warrior Yale students seem to think that teaching about 'white male poets' is offensive.

“It’s time for the English major to decolonize — not diversify — its course offering” the petition says.
“A 21st century education is a diverse education: we write to you today inspired by student activism across the university, and to make sure that you know that the English department is not immune from the collective call to action.”
Sounds more like a call for affirmative action.
Luckily, not all students are for this.
Aryssa Damron, a Yale student who just took the "Major English Poets" courses appeared on 'Fox and Friends' to voice her displeasure with the petition.
“If they're that worried about Shakespeare being white, then they're not really engaging with the texts to begin with,” she said.
Exactly. Did these students ever hear of a play called Othello?
The social justice madness at universities wages on.
