It doesn’t look like the arguments against leaving it alone have gotten any more persuasive than they were when I was a student there. If an historian were going to make a principled argument against the mural, you’d have to invoke Nietzsche’s dictum about useful history requiring a measured dose of forgetting, as well as remembering, but I don’t see any of the critics making principled arguments about anything, just a lot of bandwagon-jumping.
