      @anon Please, jar jar binks represents the worst kind of racial stereotyping. Might as well call her “dean sambo” and be done with it.

        @Anonymous I know we don’t intend it like that, but did you bother checking under the “Allegations of Racial Caricature” section? Just cuz we’re linking to it and all. I know that’s not what we meant, but I’m sure CU’s PR department would have a heart attack if we made it into the NYP again.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous Jar Jar Hinks, obviously.

  • Anonymouse says:

    @Anonymouse No preference on the last three, but absolutely NO on Jar Jar Hinks. Do we REALLY want to nickname a dean after, arguably, one of the most annoying sidekick characters ever created? Allow her to have some pride as she starts her new job.
