Do what you think is best for your educational future. However, I think you (and others) need to drop the delusion that "Falwell is not Liberty University." The two are inextricably linked. It isn't really a normal process that a university president (even its founder) gets to handpick his own son as his successor in that role for him to serve in perpetuity. This is not just a situation where a university has an outspoken and controversial president. This is a situation where the university is treated as a family business and the university president clearly has no fear that his position can be challenged. That said, I think leaving at this point might actually be one of those principled stands that ends up screwing you more than having any effect on Falwell. FWIW, I think race plays into this decision more than we all care to admit. If a white guy with a buzz cut proudly proclaims his Liberty University degree then there are segments of the country where he might as well be flying a confederate battle flag in the eyes of locals. For a black alumnus, that assumption is not going to be the case. It may spark some conversation, but no matter what stupid thing Falwell says or does, having Liberty on your resume won't have you labeled a racist in the same way said hypothetical white student would be. I don't know what to think of that, to be honest. But it's there. I used to not believe in white privilege. Then I was confronted with it face to face and I see that these assumptions really affect how we navigate our society. I'm loathe to call it a privilege but the fact is that a black conservative seems to be viewed more kindly than a white conservative by many liberals. Again, I don't know what to do with that or even if its true or if its just a mirage I see from my limited perspective, but it's something to consider as you consider which school you want to put your name to. Personally, I think the greater power would be from Liberty alumni standing up afterward and saying "This guy doesn't represent us" rather than leaving Liberty behind altogether. But that's a principled stand that others cannot afford just as much as you might not be able to afford to walk away at this stage.
