5 bleach bombings, and nobody has any clue who did the deeds.  My BS alarm was buzzing a bit here, so I did a bit of hunting  The first reports of 4 bleach bombs were from about a year ago.  Most of the articles that refer to the police involvement say that the police heard about the problem third hand and had to hunt for the person who was assaulted since nobody filed a complaint.  There seems to be no evidence of a bleach bomber or that bleach was dropped, but ample evidence of people complaining about a racism.  This also happened right around the same time as Fisher vs. University of Texas where Fisher argued that she was declined admission because she was white and the school had to make a non-white quota.  Sounds to me like there just as good of a chance that the victims were people trying to "raise awareness of racial issues" by creating a hoax as a white racist dropping bleach bombs.

Davis did contact the police and did turn in his clothes to them, so this is sounding a lot more like it really happened that the previous events, but it might be wise to remain skeptical until there is more information.

There is a lot of racism these days, both from whites and blacks.  I think that most of the responses I see here are a rush to judgement.

In other words, don't be so quick to jump to someone's defense just because of their skin color - that would be racist.

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.

Impressive.   You lost one half point for 'rapscallions' and one full point each for the intentional misspelling of 'liberal' and 'word'.

TV's Vinnie: Can we just please burn down the South and get it over with, please? They bring nothing but misery to Humanity.

I'm not kidding. Pour in the napalm, light the spark and WHOOMPH! Erase their evil from the Earth once and for all.

As long as you carve out Austin and airlift it safely into California first.

Perhaps people are simply trying to raise awareness of bad laundry habits

Yeah, UT has a bit of a habit of dropping other investigations *cough*threatsagainstmygirlfriend*cough* in order to investigate incidents in West Campus, I'm calling bullshiat on the assertion that UT is "silent" on this matter.

UT doesn't give a flying fark about issues unless it would make them look bad.
