In our Deep Dive today: A battle over race, class and power at Smith College...And in Courage or Cringe, the Cherokee Nation wants their name back, US Soccer gets a penalty, and European toy company, COBI, gets a history lesson.Questions we’ll discuss:1. Do college administrators have a responsibility to enact school policy based on the “individual truths” of their students, or is codifying the subjective a recipe for disaster?2. Do companies have a right to utilize sovereign national symbols in their branding if they do so out of respect, or do they exploit the rights of others irrespective of their motive?3. Do sports unions owe it to the athletes they represent to support them in all their causes, or are some causes simply not worth fighting for?4. And finally, is it possible for a toy company to educate kids through their products in a way that’s historically accurate, or are some episodes in human history devoid of educational value?
