Oklahoma City Community College Kicks Out Their Land Run Monument!

It’s easy to make fun of community colleges. I’ve done it myself a few times, usually unwarranted and wholly unnecessary, but now I’m feeling nothing but pangs of guilt after receiving this headline via social media last Friday: “Oklahoma City Community College Removes Controversial Land Run Monument.”

Even though I went to OCU for most of my university matriculation, I’ve always thought of community college as the “high school after high school.” But, after reading that Oklahoma City Community College has made this applaud-worthy announcement, I’m ready to go back to school there, Dangerfield-style.

In case you haven’t heard the news—or know no Indigenous peoples, natch—OCCC has torn down their Land Run monument to create a safe and inclusive atmosphere for all those that attend, particularly students with Native blood running through their veins that, you know, don’t appreciate being reminded of the theft and murder of their peoples on the daily.
