From The College Fix:

Pepperdine University is planning to remove a statue of Christopher Columbus after student complaints — but it won’t happen without a fight.

Conservative nationally syndicated radio talk show host Dennis Prager’s PragerU has launched a petition calling for it to be kept right where it is.

Prager derides Pepperdine’s decision as a huge step in the wrong direction.

    Pepperdine is built upon the site which at one time a large Chumash village which ran down to the Malibu Lagoon. Wouldn’t be more appropriate to have a memorial to the Chumash. Columbus never made it to the west coast, and is going to be relocated at the Pepperdine Campus in Florence Italy.
