The university was built on imperialism and needs to acknowledge and make amends for its deadly contributions to colonialism, starting with renaming David Hume Tower

I attend this university and regularly use the building in question and would like to see it stand as a symbol of the beginning of the universities move to becoming an anti-racist institution.
As well as acknowledging a significant black alumnus of the university, rather than a racist philosopher.

Because Racism world-wide has to stop!!! Let’s not encourage and reward racists- their names should not hour our streets — they can stay in history books with clear indications of what they did to whom and what the did for whom ! Ramni Jamnadass

Being both a student at the university and someone who has had the pleasure of volunteering in Tanzania I believe this is a great cause.
