In case any doubt remains, “Cancel Culture” is real, New Jersey’s only United States President, Woodrow Wilson will have his name removed from the high school which has bared his name for the past 90 years.

Wilson was President of The United States from 1913-1921; Governor of New Jersey from 1911-1913 and President of Princeton University.

Princeton University previously removed Wilson’s name from its educational delivery system, using some very blunt language about his removal.

The name of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Wilson College was removed last year.

The school’s board of trustees said, “We believe that Wilson’s racist thinking and policies make him an inappropriate namesake for a school whose scholars, students, and alumni must be firmly committed to combating the scourge of racism in all its forms.”

Talk of renaming Camden New Jersey’s Woodrow Wilson high began more than 1 1/2 years ago.

A renaming committee of more than 100 people — including parents, local activists, and school administrators — was formed.

The large committee met virtually over Zoom to review various options. Some of the names under consideration in this round of discussions include:

  • Former United States Congressman John Lewis, a civil rights icon.
  • Former President Barack Obama.
  • East High School.
  • Camden East High School.
  • East Camden High School.

At this time, the renaming process appears to be starting all over, again. No specific reason has been given for the reset.

Wilson was both praised and criticized during his time in office; as governor and president of the United States, along with criticism of his time as president of Princeton University.

It appears that he will be the latest victim of cancel culture.

Wilson will join George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and many others who have felt the wrath of the modern “Cancel Culture” movement.
