The Ole Miss Alumni Association is offering at $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Wish I could be a fly on the wall for that roommate fight.

The "obvious" tag would have been here, but the Governor of Mississippi showed up with a lynch mob to prevent it from entering the thread.

not to defend racist assholes, but doesn't the FBI have better things to do?
some douchebag made a tasteless joke... doesn't make it a threat or a damn "hate crime". it's at worst vandalism... but since it's easily removable, i'd call it "littering" more than anything else.

What's the over/under on whether this was a black person?
 
2014-02-18 04:25:04 PM
Something, something, historical heritage, something, something, Ha! it was all just a big joke, something, something.
 
2014-02-18 04:25:20 PM
Is anyone really that surprised? Because they shouldn't be.
 
2014-02-18 04:25:25 PM
I'll bet 100 bucks a black person did this.

Sounds like a stupid fraternity prank. At least they didn't steal the statue.

Okay, suppose somebody put a flaming cross on somebody's lawn but does nothing further. Is it a hate crime yet? You could also argue that, at worst, it's vandalism.

The most that should happen here, is if it was a student(s), then they should be kicked from the school. Since no one was actually hurt, and no property damaged, I'm not sure how this can be pursued as a hate crime.

Oh for fark's sake.

Thanks guys.  Good job.  You just reinforced all of Ole Miss' negative stereotypes for the next generation.

Hopefully somebody was just trolling but I'm sure there are at least a few racist assholes who would like to do that for reals.

Just watched The Butler. This country has a lot to be ashamed about.

It's hateful and terrible but outside of vandalism isn't it free speech?  I say charge the asshole with vandalism and give them the maximum punishment applicable to that offense.  If they are a student they won't be one for long. Have fun with your academic career and all future employment too dickhead.
 
2014-02-18 04:31:28 PM
We've got "harmless prank", "how could a noose placed on a prominent black student's statue be a hate crime", and "it was probably black people" so far in this thread. Someone needs to come in and tell us that we're the real racists for noticing the racial undertones of this thing, and we'll have hit the Potato Bingo here.

Did you know, it's actually traditional to burn certain religious articles, at certain times, in certain cultures?

Just because something has one meaning here; doesn't mean that it is the same meaning everywhere.

/ I agree that this particular incident was in extremely poor taste; and the perps should have 1,000 hours of community service, reading to inner city kids.

Flaming cross vs. noose:  One of these things is tasteless and will cause no further damage.  the other is on fire and could cause serious damages/injuries/death.

Lawn vs. statue:  One of these is privatley owned and should something occur there it is most certainly directed at that party with malice.  The other is a farking statue in a public place and ity's highly likely that the person who did it is just a moron douchebag.

Can you really not see the differences?

Show me a picture of the statue with "the noose" around its neck.

Most of the time stuff like this happens, it's less racism, and just some jackass trying to stir up crap.  I bet the bastard appears on TV at some point, crying about how horrible it is someone put the noose on the statue.

Actual racist do exist, but most of them are too terrified of getting outed, to pull this crap.

You do realize the FBI has 36K employees right?  Having two or three of them working on this is not going to cause the agency to fail from lack of personnel.  And considering the FBI's idea of "better things to do" is COINTELPRO, are you actually complaining the FBIS isn't harassing non-facists while merrily helping neo-Confederate bomb-monkeys?

The worst part is you don't even understand why.


And since you didn't, I'll explain:

Here's what conservatives(and honestly a lot of other people) don't get about hate crimes.  They aren't worse because of the motive.  They're worse because they contain a threat against a large number of other people.  It's like multiple counts of intimidation in one single violent crime.  When you do something like this, you're threatening thousands.  If someone tied a noose outside my door, I'd expect them to go to jail for threatening me.  If they do to a symbol of black students being at that school, they're threatening ALL the black students there.  And they need to go to trial for it.

Hate crime? Probably not.

Tasteless... bad joke... juvenile... deplorable... idiotic... all yes.

While you may be convinced that you're only expressing your healthy skepticism, I too will express mine and suggest there is perhaps more to your comments than merely that.

Is there a more deadweight state in the US than Mississippi?  I think it exists to make Alabama, Kentucky, and West Virginia feel better about themselves.

If it wasn't a KA I'll be shocked.  Those were the racist-iest SOBs when I was a student there.

Why do you hate inner city kids?  Make them do 1000 hours of community service hanging from a noose; seems much more their style

You mean a place that had riots no less than 50 yrs ago where the National Guard was called out (and the Army) is, still, to this day, having racial issues?
 
2014-02-18 04:38:54 PM
the real problem here is tht people are so uptight these days that they can't even laugh at a symbol of a racist lynching anymore.

Sad, just sad...
