    Yes, intent counts

    SO the question is, did he accidently slip while carrying a noose and he lost his grip on it and it just happened to, accidently, fall around the statue's neck where he couldn't reach it to remove it?

    Or maybe he meant to put a tie around the statue but when he reached into his closet he accidently pulled out a noose?

    Or maybe, just maybe, he knew the symbolic meaning behind the noose and the effect of hanging it around that particular statue's neck?

    What do you think?

    If I'd considered it a joke, I wouldn't have stated that those involved should have been instantly expelled.

    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.

    How could anyone expect white Liberals to come swoopin' in claiming that all white people--except them, of course--are racist.

    Oh, and black folks are too weak minded to deal with it, unlike white folks.

    Man oh man oh man. There are fewer things in life more reliable than the emotional fragility of white people when their white privilege is called out. Apsdt, you think I'm black?! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL, learn to read.

    For the few of you who are actually willing and able to do this thing called LISTEN, here is a nice summary of what it means to be a white person (and a straight male one at that). Dear racism deniers: It is physically impossible for you to raise any objections that that author did not address in his follow-up threads. But some of you will try. And, like the butthurt commentors, you too will fail miserably.

    I think I'm just gonna sit back for the next round of posts and munch on popcorn. This ought to be quite entertaining.

    I know you're not black. Thus your rage is senseless, because you dont have the first damn clue what black folks are thinking.

    I have to admire your rock-solid commitment to refusing to address actual arguments.

    I guess it was, "Was it a racist joke? Oh hell yes." that threw me off.
    I'm not sure I'd expel the guys. There might be some kind of penance that could be dreamed up for them.

    Sorry YOU lose - the photo is from the SigEp chapter at University of SOUTHERN Mississippi - NOT from the University of Mississippi

    Sigma Phi Epsilon - MS Gamma

    How would you know how many people of colour work in the Obama campaign group?
