    There is only one conclusion that right-minded folks would have about a noose around the neck.
    Why must we relive these Civil Rights battles on the Internet ?

    If there were witnesses, I suggest the perpetrators be identified. Then someone can simply ask them rather than speculating. The statue is bronze and we are talking about college students. They may not even be aware that the person depicted was in fact black.

    When it starts happening anywhere but in the South, I'll reassess.
    Don't let them off the hook with the South.

    I see this as the Fourth great wave of Southern repression against Blacks--
    the Civil War, the KKK-inspired 1920's, the 1960's and Civil Rights, and Now.

    Such gross and stupid incidents of racial incitement often turn out to be false flag operations.
    Could be a fraternity prank that pledges were forced to perform. At the University of Houston, in front of the Science Building, stands a statue of a naked woman. When I was a pledge in the fraternity I belonged to, I had to sneak over there in the middle of the night, and put a bra and a cotex on her, before soaping the fountain. LOL.

    So, without "white power!" , there wouldn't be any racism?

    What if I didn't come up with any conclusion at all? Some people wait before they have a single sentence of information from a known bull****ter like the OP before they make an opinion.

    Crazy I know.

    Anyone here notice that you do not hear about the constant black on white crimes? It happens daily but you do not hear about it EVER.
