    Three 19 yr old frat boys being stupid. Stop the presses.

    The kids are in deep doo-doo now, though, because there apparently isn't any law against propping items against a statue if the statue isn't actually damaged. So the FBI has been called in to see if it can be charged as a hate crime.

    Sorry, the worst these kids should have had was instant expulsion from the university. Was it a racist joke? Oh hell yes. Should they spend five years in the slammer for it? Of course not. This is one of those face-palm moments, when officials have perpetrators, but can't find any law they have broken, so they call in the feds to fabricate one.

    What is racism? Hint: It is not the same thing as prejudice.

    Funny how hate crimes are wrong because depending on intent means reading people's mind, but when it comes to whether an act is racist, suddenly intent become critical

    Your white privilege allows you to say this.

    racism is an insult that has no sting anymore because so many left-wing morons throw it around as some sort of nuke designed to destroy any argument they cannot defeat.
    If you've got a better plan to combat the present-day institutionalized racism, then I am all ears.

    It wasn't a crime but it was no joke, either. Not enough time's passed yet.

    Prove it. Simply provide a definition of racism.

    Man, how did I know this was gonna happen? One makes the slightest allegation of racism, and butthurt white people pour out of the woodwork. It's like barely touching a fire ant bed and watching the fire ants swarm anything and anyone within a five-foot radius.
