UC Berkeley removed the name “Boalt Hall” from a law school building, acknowledging the racist anti-Chinese views expressed by John Henry Boalt.
He called Chinese people unassimilable liars, murderers and misogynists. He pushed the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882—the 1st US immigration ban on a specific group of people. Today, however, his name was taken off a Berkeley Law School building.
