#CancelYale: Yale University Was Named After a Slave Trader

#CancelYale: Yale University Was Named After a Slave Trader 

A man named Jesse Kelly, who is also a host of the Jesse Kelly show came out to give the history of how the name "Yale" University came about.

He wrote on his official social media page @JesseKellyDC

"Yale University was named for Elihu Yale. Not just a man who had slaves. An actual slave trader. I call on @Yale
 to change it’s name immediately and strip the name of Yale from every building, piece of paper, and merchandise. Otherwise, they hate black people."
