It could have been a white person who is part of the movement too. You do know that whites and many other races are in agreement with the protests and support the black students. Different mind set and different generation.

Actually, I think you are right. That's not how real vandals would deface a portrait.

Would have to be right ? No Black person would ever do something like that to keep their cause on the front page, especially in colleges where trending on twitter is a major coupe.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if this was done to draw attention to a movement. Remember a few years ago when the professor in NY was caught hanging a noose? Tawana Brawley?

How is this race-baiting? Is it not possible to report an incident and discuss it without allegations of race-baiting?

And if it's not a group trying to draw attention to the cause then the excuse will be the standard "it was either a lone wolf, the person is mentally ill or it was just a silly but stupid prank." The same old weak playboy response from the same group of posters.

This is the type of Dialogue we need in America. Both Sides agreeing that, this was done by some Jackhole probably trying to get attention.
