“uploaded to Snapchat where subsequent screenshots caused a furor around campus”
Students mistook his lasso for a noose. This is what comes from the false racism panic being pushed on many campuses.
The College Fix reports:
Student in cowboy outfit causes racial angst at Wake Forest U.
The latest example of college students’ hyper-vigilance for anything remotely “racist” comes from Wake Forest University where complaints were made about a person’s cowboy outfit.
A photo of an “unidentified male” donned in what appeared to be a “noose” at a campus Subway was uploaded to Snapchat where subsequent screenshots caused a furor around campus. The caption on the photo reads “Lmao whoever this dude is or if I find out who are ! I will strangle you with that f**king noose you piece of sh*t!! People at Wake bro, y’all playing with life fr.”
The Old Gold & Black reports someone ended up filing a Bias Incident Report (BIR). According to Chief Diversity Officer José Villalba, the “official” Bias Incident group concluded the person in the pic was “impersonating a cowboy by wearing a Western-style shirt with part of an American flag on it and a lasso across his chest and shoulder.”
Nevertheless, Student Senators Miles Middleton and Fadi Narouz “understood” the lasso to be a noose, and at a February 12 Student Government General Assembly meeting decided to bring up the issue as well as other matters of a racial nature — like “Caucasian students behaving rudely to employees of color” and “students of color being scared to enter certain spaces on campus.”
