When I read the following headline, I was torn between laughing and crying:
“The University of Utah may change Fight Song after Complaints that lyrics are Racist“
From the article, it’s apparent that the college is indeed considering this:
Professor Joanna Yaffe said she sees not only sexism in the song but also racism — explaining that a line which states that the school’s “coeds are the fairest” could be interpreted as a reference to skin color.
“I don’t think I’m being hyper-PC, I’m just thinking about not really being included in the song,” Yaffe, an adjunct professor of psychiatry, said in an interview with The Salt Lake Tribune.
