Students at the University of Buffalo in upstate New York woke up to a hate crime to start the new school year.
They found restrooms plastered with signs like this.
Needless to say there was outrage. The House of Many Colors hasn’t weighed in yet, but you should expece Josh Earnest to talk about this at length in today’s press conference. It looks like racism is alive and well, even in upstate New York.
“It brought up feelings of the past of a past that our generation has never seen which I think is why it was so shocking for us to see,” Micah Oliver, president for the Black Student Union, tells ABC 27.
Buffalo white onlyMore than 100 students turned out to a Black Student Union meeting to discuss the signs.
“There was fear expressed, anger, disappointment – all of that,” according to Oliver.
In a day when the little snowflakes attending college are turned into puddles of jello over microaggressions, this was certain to bring the world to a halt.
And then the truth came out. And the Obama administration won’t be sending in the Department of Justice.
And then, Ashley Powell, a black graduate student, stood up in the meeting to admit she had hung the signs, claiming it was part of an “art project,” The Buffalo News reports.
Students were reportedly “outraged” and “walked out” of the meeting. Other students denounced Powell’s project as “racist” and “an act of terrorism.”
Ashley “apologized” that people were “hurt” but certainly not that she did it. She did it for effect. Turns out the little twit is an “art” student and it was an approved art project.
The university is “…continuing to review this matter through appropriate university policies and procedures.” The review will go away quickly and nothing will be done because Ashley is a black female. Or whatever gender she chooses today.
If this had been a white student’s “art project” the #BlackLivesMatter terrorists would be storming the campus and heads would be rolling.
