Unrest at Texas College Following Election

Published:

http://www.kcentv.com/news/c-article.php?cid=12&nid=1356

Watch the video. 

At Baylor University, the largest Baptist College in the world, White students became enraged after Obama won the election.  Tempers flared as they burned Obama signs and began yelling racial slurs at Black students.  Nooses were left hanging from trees, according to the police.

:-) Well, I guess all the bigots who, before the vote, predicted riots after the election were correct. They just had the perpetrators wrong.
Slurs from "Christians". Imagine.

It's a parent's responsibility to teach their children the Golden Rule. The demigods on Sunday morning obviously don't do it (although it is the ultimate Cliff Notes for the Holy Book they quote)...they're too busy pushing an us-against-them agenda.

You hit the nail right on the head. Ignorance seems to run rampant in this country and you would be surprised at the places you can find it. The sky is not falling people, chill out for minute.

Wow, I wouldn't have picked Baylor for this to happen. How embarrassing for the whole state of Texas.

If we all were the same color, still it would be the same, rather than the color of our skin it would be the color of our eyes, hair, round nose verses square ones. It's human nature. I told my kids that they were not any better than anyone else but just as good.

Anybody remember the "Blue eyes, brown eyes" exercize done in 1968. It was done on all white kids. The blue eyes kids were told that they were better than the brown eyes in Jane Elliott's third graders in Iowa.

I cannot confirm it with a reliable source, but many links report that the Westboro Baptist Church is planning a protest at Obama's grandmother's funeral. The date & location are being kept very private of course, but these are the same people who protested "God Hates Fags" at the funeral of a soldier who was killed in Iraq. I doubt if they'll be able to pull this off, because she'll most likely be buried in Hawaii. This is one of their web sites

I agree with Janet! Only i call it animal instinct. People will always find a reason to attack and belittle other people. And the fact this is happening at a college shouldn't surprise anyone. I'm sure the percentage of racist goes down with age.
I have no problem with Barrack being president, but i am starting to question the names being floated around as possible candidates for his team in the white house. Most of them are the same ole names we've heard and seen before. Where's the change?

Thanks to everyone for your comments.

I just spoke to my sister in Boston and a Black church in Boston was burned down following Obama's victory.   There are no specific details yet, since this is an arson investigation. I know we can't blame everything on politics, but of course there is a reason to be suspicious.

Toad - I understand your concern, but why not be patient? He hasn't even been inaugurated and everyone is already criticizing Obama.   Wouldn't you be more concerned if he gave high paying jobs to his high school buddies like a certain governor? I'm surprised he is so well prepared and am very impressed. Anyway, haven't you ever worked for a different boss and gotten different results? Obama is surrounding himself by seasoned pros who can offer the best advice, including CEOs from top companies. I'm sure he will listen carefully and then make his own decisions. There's an expression I used to hear at spiritual meetings "Take what you need and leave the rest." There was a lot of good done during the Clinton administration. So maybe Obama is following that sentiment.

I apologize for this OT but "Obama is surrounding himself by seasoned pros who can offer the best advice, including CEOs from top companies." What ever happened to the Democrat/Liberal battle cry about evil corporate executives? Now that Obama is choosing some to advise him, they are now okay?

Those Westboro people have gone way beyond what is allowed by the First Amendment. One's rights end when they violate another's rights or cause harm. Those people are just plain sick.

I didn't know this blog was about who Obama chose in his cabinet and confusion about the "democrat/Liberal battle and evil corporate executives and sick people. Are we on point with the blog. That's exactly why I blocked people. This blog is about bigots who were mad that Obama won and posted racial slurs on a college campus.

Good point, Janet.

Last week at the University of Kentucky a likeness of Obama was hanged in effigy.

Yesterday in Alabama an interracial couple were victims of a cross burning.

In Michigan a Saginaw man walked down the street in full Knights of Ku Klux Klan regalia while waving an American flag & toting a handgun.

and the list goes on and on....

The thing about racism is that there are different kinds. This kind is from misguided idiots and really is not the kind to be extremely afraid of. Not unless they start hanging people from trees (Southern Trees Bear Strange Fruit) again and the government and law office is a part of it like it use to be.

It's the institutionalize racism that requires astute identification and the ability to block a punch and remain successful in spite of it.

There are a lot more of these stories than there are Baylor:

An Augsburg College student and Sarah Palin supporter from Alaska was beaten on election night while walking to her dorm and was called a racist by a group of four young women because she had on a McCain/Palin presidential campaign button, authorities and the victim said.

Annie Grossmann, a freshman on the Minneapolis college's hockey team, suffered blurred vision and is thought to have had a concussion from a punch in the eye, but declined medical attention, she said.

Grossmann, who is white, said she told the women, who were black, "You guys don't even know me. There's no reason to think I'm racist."

At that point, she said, she pushed the bigger one in the group, and "she punched me, and the back of my head hit a brick wall."
