We don't know who is doing this... so it must be white racists.

I hate to use the term "false flag" but how about finding some evidence before assuming racism?

here to help: People wonder why I give the "subtle" racists such a hard time on here. Well here's your answer. Your innuendo jacks up the climate to embolden others who may not be quite as subtle as you to do asinine sh*t like this.

I'm sure in their minds it's "just a joke" and that us libtards need to get a "sense of humor".

I'm sure someone will come along and defend these precocious rapscallions against the over reactions and oppression of the librul "PC police". At the very least they will derail the thread ignoring the actual assaults and deny racism exists and how racist it is that black people can say the "n wurd" but white people can't or some other such nonsense.

kwame: This is a criminal matter. Even if there were something administration could do, it's standard practice to stay out of the way of a police investigation.


Not true of many universities when the crime in question is a rape or sexual assault.

GoldSpider: Uranus Is Huge!: Schools should never address or comment any crimes that occur on their campuses. Ever. Doing so often pollutes the police investigation, taints the future jury pool, and causes undue alarm in the community.

That's a pretty stupid thing to post, considering the incident didn't occur on campus.


You're right about that detail. It didn't occur on their campus. It happened in a neighborhood (apt complex?) full of UT students. So now there's a news story about a hate crime/racially motivated attack and there's a university that wants to get ahead of the bad PR due to the recent history of these sorts of incidents.

This seems to anger some people because stupid libs, white guilt, derp.

Then you have people like me that look at statistics that show that blacks murder whites at over twice the rate of whites murdering blacks.

Or, look at the fact that while whites are 78% of the population and commit about 50% of all murders while blacks are about 12% of the population and commit 48% of all murders.

What's really disturbing is the percentage of murders between the two races, combined, steadily rose across 28 years of a BJS study of data.

/trolling, yes, but that's all true
//here's your farking citation http://www.bjs.gov/index.cfm?ty=pbdetail&iid=2221


Now superimpose that over poverty/education statistics and statistics on the racial divides within the areas those murders are happening.
 
2013-08-25 09:16:30 AM

BraveNewCheneyWorld: Yes subby, because people in school administration should be taking over the role of the police just because an assault happens on their campus.  And if they don't, they obviously approve of the assault.

/calibrate sarcasm here


I know that a lot of schools prefer to police themselves internally. The schools pretend it's a service they offer to students but it's really aimed at reducing the number of police reports.

Students call security to report a crime and it's suggested to them that it will end badly if they let the local PD in.

Every year there are stories of rape victims that accuse the school of siding with the rapists and destroying their criminal case.

Turns out that UT administration already commented to the local news:

"Austin Police are investigating the allegations about an incident off campus and we are anxious to learn the results," said Gregory J. Vincent, Vice President for Diversity and Community Engagement at UT. "The dean of students and our campus climate response team, which coordinates the university's' response to bias incidents, is actively reviewing these allegations and also prepared to work with Austin Police on their investigation." The University of Texas Police Department said they were aware of the situation and are working with APD on the case.

http://www.kxan.com/news/local/austin/police-bleach-balloon-thrown -at- person-in-west-campus

So their response is less of a non-story than it already was.

PainfulItching: And Texas has the largest student population in the country.


Actually, in enrollment, they are 5th.....right behind Texas A&M (according to 2012-2013 records).  ASU (1), UCF (2) and OSU (Buckeyes,  not Sooners, 3) are the top.

UT is one of the most liberal schools in the country, which I remind "rednecks" of whenever I see them wearing Longhorns gear, which is more of me not liking UT then it is for political reasons and watching idiots struggle with that tidbit is a nice past time ("I am wearing it because it has a cow on it!")

Oops, left off the "one of".  Mea culpa.

And Austin as a whole is faaaaar more liberal than the rest of Texas. Mostly because of UT, but also because you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a poet or singer-songwriter. Shame it's becoming urban sprawl. The 80's and 90's were far more cool.

mesmer242: Well, subby, West campus is not actually UT property and nobody knows for sure that the person doing it is a student. It's sort of the job of the police to investigate crimes. We had some hate crimes at my university (not UT, and not a school in Texas) when I was a student, and the local police and criminal justice system did a much better job of dealing with it than administrators.


When I we a student there was an anti-gay slur written on someone's white board and the first thing the school did was call in the FBI to investigate.  This was a week into freshman year, and the "victim" was a freshman girl.  The real victims were really the students on the list she provided to the FBI who then interrogated them.  Then she admitted she had done it herself, and she got pulled out of school and put into a mental institution.  It probably would have been less embarrassing for everyone if the campus police had looked into it first.

BrassArt: Remember Oberlin...


Oberlin found the two involved, but since they were "students", they are protected by federal privacy laws. They probably stuck out like a sore thumb in a town of 4000. I'm sure the distraction was checking the redneck towns in the surrounding countryside for roadtrip bubbas.

Austin on the other hand is huge and suffers from condo overload, unrecognizable from 10 years ago. Sounds like terrorists with bombs are roaming. Unlike the rednecks in pickup trucks that would throw half-full beer cans at students on bicycles until Texas got some drinking and driving laws a few years back.

Since the professional TexasRacists™ are all in the Legislature cooking up voter IDs, police should first check who of them hasn't left town.

Reminds me of a local school here which had a bleach balloon attack, idiot kids would run around pelting other frat shirts ruining them. It wasn't campus police but the local PD which investigated and found two idiots doing it, they plead down to something (I think original charge was attempt. to do great bodily harm) to aggravated battery. College kids in general are stupid as hell, why the FBI or what not needs to be involved who knows, but im willing to bet NOT just minorities are targeted here, but the media loves to play that scenario.

/funny thing is it was on some bible college campus, those kids are frankly nuts - they are not allowed to smoke or drink on campus but go ape shiat at the local college bar where stupidity runs its highest real quick.

Kind Sir or Madaam;

The beginning of a sentence should be capitalized.  Your attempt at using an ellipsis is both poorly formatted, and misused.   They are used to create a cliff hanger or intrigue the reader.  You have used a double-space between the words learn and anything, which is poor grammar as well.  One question mark will suffice in most sentence structures.  It's as if you aren't educated that well.

Sherman also speculates that the purpose of the bleach bombs may be to target students of color with a chemical normally used to "whiten" clothes.

This reminds me of literature classes in high school and college where the teacher/prof required students to write essay upon essay analyzing symbolism that simply wasn't there.

No, the person(s) behind this are most likely not doing it because bleach turns things white.  They're most likely doing it because bleach is cheap, easily-available and will readily ruin most clothing it comes in undiluted contact with.  But mostly because it's cheap.
 
2013-08-25 10:03:58 AM
Here's a nice little nugget for those who are still doubting UT's pervasive racism:

UT's Greek community, specifically member organizations of the Inter-Fraternity Council and University Panhellenic Council, has recently drawn sharp criticism for racially-themed parties at which sorority and fraternity members and their guests -- who, for the most part, are white -- dress up in stereotypical clothing associated with a minority group. The local chapters of Tri Delta and Zeta Tau Alpha have recently apologized for a fiesta-themed party where two party attendees wore shirts that read "Illegal" and "Border Patrol."

And according to older reports, these bleach attacks are an ongoing thing, going back into 2012 and earlier still.  So, again...

Of course you're right, that's why there's documented reports of them being thrown at dorm windows belonging to minority students.  Because they're trying to ruin the window with the bleach!
