Edinburgh University renames David Hume Tower over 'racist' views
"Edinburgh University has renamed its David Hume Tower over the philosopher's "comments on matters of race".
The building, which will be used as a student study space this academic year, will now be known as 40 George Square.
An online petition claiming David Hume "wrote racist epithets" and calling for the building to be renamed has been signed more than 1,700 times.
The university said Hume's comments on race, "though not uncommon at the time, rightly cause distress today."
The decision was announced in a statement on the work of its equality and diversity committee and its race equality and anti-racist sub-committee.
It said its work had been "energised" since the death in the US of George Floyd and campaigning by the Black Lives Matter movement."
Nice. Name it in honor of a felon who killed himself by drug overdose while resisting arrest. Oh, those wacky Scots.
