    This type of thing does make me wonder if it could have been some really poor frat house joke/prank/dare. Now, it could just as easily be racism (ignorant and stupid), but it just seems so dumb as a racist act.

    Now, I still wonder what exactly they could be charged with. I think kicking the culprits out is good punishment. It simply isn't something that should go beyond that because it seems like charging them criminally for something so stupid would do nothing except cause more racial problems.

    I'd say either a stupid prank or seeking the "shock value." This thread is perfect example of the results of the latter.

    Hey, did anyone notice that ever since the news broke that the university kicked out the three (white) culprits, and that the national fraternity suspended the local fraternity...and that the fraternity itself says that yes, those three (white) guys did do the crime...we've heard NOTHING from "LowDown"?

    They didn't commit a "crime". That's why you don't hear us berating these kids for comitting a crime.

    They haven't been charged with a crime. Thanks for further confusing the issue.

    It would be interesting to find out what evidence the University has against them and whether or not it would hold up in court. I smell a scapegoating. The three haven't even talked to university officials about it so you know there has been zero due process.

    I'm glad I'm not a kid these days. The worst that we used to get for stupid college pranks was a browbeating from the dean. Now kids get their lives ruined. (And they wonder why fewer men are attending college.)

    The Democratic Party hasn't listened to the black caucus or to black leaders for years. And yet they continue to enjoy total support from blacks. So what do you call that?

    You don't generalize much do you? As to black people, I suspect they need only consider the alternative.

    Strictly speaking, yes they did - defacing someone else's property. That aside, their crime became more egregious in the same way that any crime predicated on prejudice is automatically made more serious than the crime itself would normally be.

    But I get it - there's a lot of conservatives out there who are just pissed that we're taking away their 'right' to discriminate against others.
