Kampervan BS: Cecil Rhodes controversy (66* d) RE: BS: Cecil Rhodes controversy 17 Jan 16


What then should happen to the 100,000 that he left to the college or the money that funds the Rhodes scholarship each year?

He is also on record as saying 'that no student shall be qualified or disqualified for election to a scholarship on acco0unt of his race or religious opinions'.

I am not saying that Rhodes was an exclusively 'good man' but neither was he exclusively bad. He was of his time. His failings should be recognised, there should be no whitewash; but the removal of visible evidence is a slippery slope to denial.
