"Philosophers such as Plato and Kant are removed from syllabus because they are white"

A crazy idea, Voltaire is a victim too. Well, he was white after all. @Bubbly, never mind, they will leave 'Othello':

    Click bait headlines. The students who are "demanding" the removal of these philosophers are from the School of Oriental and African Studies. I guess they would prefer a bit more diversity. That said, try as you might, you can't ignore Plato.
