Students Protest After Racist Graffiti Found at the University of Richmond

“Whoever’s door that got written on, that’s going to have to be with them for the rest of their life”

How do we know the graffiti isn’t part of a hoax? This sort of thing has happened a number of times in recent years.

WWBT News reports:

Students protest after reported racist graffiti at the University of Richmond

At Saturday nights University of Richmond basketball game at the Robbins Center, some students in attendance protested against an alleged act of racism.

The protest comes after “racist graffiti” reportedly showed up Friday night on an African-American student’s dorm room.

Students at the game held up several signs, some saying, “no room for hate” and “stop racism.”

Richmond Spider’s Junior Forward Nick Sherod weighed in on the incident saying, ” I think people want to sometimes silence people, they don’t really want to get that involved in the game.”

Sherod went on to say, “I think that what happened is unacceptable, and I don’t think that can happen. I think that sometimes people have to know what’s going on on campus. This is just a game, we move on. Whoever’s door that got written on, that’s going to have to be with them for the rest of their life…”

The University’s President, Ronald Crutcher, responded to the incident calling it a “cowardly and racist act that is profoundly hurtful and deeply offensive.”

The MO is literally becoming…

You know what, we haven’t had enough racism worth protesting in a while. Let’s go make some fake hate speech and gin up more protest fuel.

Point of observation: if you have to gin up fake hate to draw more attention to yourself and your temper tantrums then it probably isn’t as big of an issue as you are trying to make it out to be.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is already working on the post-hoax revelation statement about “bringing awareness” or something.

I suppose I am losing my edge, but I don’t think that the actual alleged racist/hate/graffiti/speech was quoted, mentioned or even so much as described in this article. If so and I believe it is so, how am I supposed to make a determination as to whether or not I think it is racist? Or is it that we have at last reached that state of enlightenment wherein we need not bother with flexing our minds on judgment calls since our elite do that for us and tell us how we should opine.
