Those fraternity brothers have lots of money for paint and lots of other rocks too. Plus there's decades of historical injustice going on, and those Trump supporters were profiled. They were just walking home with some candy from the store and those black fraternity brothers profiled them and accused them of painting that rock. What we really need to address this serious sociological issue is a government program so that the Trump supporters will have something to do at night instead of roaming college campuses expressing themselves and refining their artistic endeavors. Something like midnight basketball, only with computers like "Call of Duty", yeah that's it there should be a government program to pay those Trump supporters so they can play video games all day and stay out of trouble. It's just the times that we live in. Oh, and dey wuz in de wrong place at de wrong time, too.
What in the name of St0rmfront are you babbling about?

Chalking for Trump is huge on college campuses right now, no one is painting. There's always an exception though, at this school apparently everyone paints the Spirit Rock. The school made a statement confirming that students can't reserve the Spirit Rock nor is there a guarantee as to how long a message stays up. The Trump messengers probably didn't even realize a memorial was planned. It's since been painted over twice. Much to do about nothing.

So now that college can expect some group to paint it then stand guard to protect their little treasure of free speech and not allow others to express theirs.

Well isnt that outcome predictable.
