This Is My Shocked Face
April 28, 2016
Attention, citizens. A hate crime has been detected at Salisbury University:
The image, found April 10 on a whiteboard in Blackwell Library, showed a stick figure being hanged and labelled with a racial slur. Underneath was the hashtag “#whitepower.”
After much wailing and fretting, and declarations of being “passionate about diversity and inclusion,” and after the involvement of police and the Wicomico County State’s Attorney’s Office, the white supremacist culprits have now been apprehended:
The university confirmed Tuesday, April 26, that the students involved in the incident were black.
Why, it’s almost as if fabricating racial animus were fashionable on campus. And of course beyond.
