I wonder if any of Richmond's white students have joined the Black Student Coalition in their fight to have the name changed?

Why is it the black students job to lead this movement? In other states,  elected officials, faculty and administrators took the lead.

If they don’t change the names, those students aren’t going anywhere and the powers to be know it.
