    Sorry, I don't know what 'jackass' is and it's a long way to the nearest kid who might tell me so you'll have to enlighten me.

    So, IF you're in the US, you're admitting your cultural ignorance, and in that case don't have the wherewithall to judge this situation to begin with.

    Not my fault you've cut off contact with the modern world. Nothing at all wrong with that.

    It is Mississippi, a solid red state so no real surprise there.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    You need to climb off your horse. The other poster was talking about intent, and not actions. Their actions have consequences. I don't give a **** what their intent was. They should have exercised common sense before doing what they did.

    There isn't a culture on earth that has no racism. The key is in how it's dealt with. What more do you require than what has happenned to address the incident? You looking for the death penalty or something?

    Three students' careers and lives have been permanently impacted because they carried out what could very well have been a stupid college prank. A fraternity that has openned itself up to all races has lost it's charter. Massive over reaction fueled by the guilty minds of a bunch of white liberals.

    The 'modern world' being where people know what 'kids play Jackass' means? And the fact that I don't know disqualifies me, in your 'modern world', from having an opinion about the topic?
    Son, you need to regroup and rethink. Start by telling me what 'playing jackass' means.

    Couple things, I'm 63 in a few months and my father was the only one with the grant to call me "Son". My point is, you make great hay that you live disconnected from the world. Great way to live and I have zero problem with it. It'd be where I'd be if I didn't have grandkids. But it makes you out of touch with the culture you seem to really want to comment upon.

    Hey, you've got a computer, and I know your connection works. Try google, duh!
