The writer of the article could not have been less clear. What does he mean when he writes the statue was “hung by its torso”? Was it hung with rope? When he writes that the statute was “carved and painted in the likeness of a person of color”, does that mean that’s how the statue was in its normal condition, or that the student painted it to appear like a person of color as part of the prank? How about having a picture so we can picture it.

I agree with you Brian. It was so watered down it would be hard for a third party to make any judgment about what was intended. I tend to think it was just a college prank blown out of proportion.
Yes, hanging black people is hilarious.
Regardless of the intentions of the student, someone that stupid shouldn’t be in school. Seems like the perfect opportunity to remove one of these morons from higher education.
If it were hung with a noose around it’s neck it might have been suspicious.. but around the torso? Come on people not everything involving black is meant to be racist. It’s as to say if the statue would have been white it wouldn’t be such a big deal.
IDK kind of a lame prank to begin with but seems innocent of any thing more than that.
I wonder who’d be offended if the statue was painted green? The Irish?
You know SOMEONE has to take offence at just about everything these days….
