VIDEO: Students sign petition to ban ‘offensive’ white man in crosswalk signs
- GWU students recently voted to change the school’s “Colonials” mascot and told Campus Reform that President Barack Obama is the best president in history.
- Campus Reform went undercover to George Washington University to ask students if they supported changing the “offensive” and “oppressive” white man in crosswalk lights, as well.
With the rise of politically correct culture, students and universities have vehemently pushed for diversity and inclusivity movements, resulting in many things being labeling “offensive.”
Amid these ongoing diversity and inclusivity movements, Campus Reform went to George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where students previously voted to ban their “offensive” Colonials mascot. GW students also previously told Campus Reform that President Barack Obama is the best president in U.S. history.
Campus Correspondent Ethan Cai asked George Washington students if they supported changing “offensive” crosswalk lights because the “walk” sign only portrays an image of a white man.
How far will this movement of diversity and inclusion go? Where will the line be drawn for what is considered offensive?

By signing the petition, students “vehemently urge[d] the University to consider changing the crosswalk signs.”
Many students signed Campus Reform’s fake petition. Even one university faculty member expressed support, as well.
“There’s definitely a lack of representation,” one student said about the crosswalks. Another said that she thought the change would be “one step” to a more welcoming campus environment.
“That’s so cute! Oh my god yeah,” a student said with excitement about the idea. “I can see like, I guess, why some students have a problem with it… I’ll totally sign that.”
“Oh that’s so lit,” another student exclaimed.
