I don't get it. They could face an investigation for WHAT? Shooting the sign?

If they have shot up that memorial, would you agree that they should be charged to the extent of the law?

Screech that it was "threatening" despite the fact that it was posted on a private account, not out in public, spread around, handed out, sent off to for all to see.

The clutching of pearls from those trying so hard to prove that they aren't racist is so tired.

They have the right to take that photo that displays their character.

The person who had access to the private account and then snitched - I don't have a whole lot of warm feelings for that person, either. No one likes a snitch. Nonetheless, they have the right to "bring it to your attention Ole Miss".

The school has the right to investigate the matter.

Everyone should be prepared for backlash when they do things like this, including the snitch.

But the backlash should include facts only, not someone's fantasy fiction that they are making up in their heads to make sure that everyone is very aware that they are NOT racist!
But any hatred, or implied hatred of whites wouldn't make a lot of headlines- these folks here would be defending them, minimizing or dismissing it-the same things they are criticizing some posters here of doing.
Bottom line in Murica: non-white is always right and whitey's not alrighty.

More people being afraid of a picture. Like they are of murals of Washington, paintings with only white people, 100 year old statues, flags, symbols, etc. The Left is so resilient that they are afraid of absolutely EVERYTHING. Please don't see your own shadows Democrats you may faint!

I thought the left supported freedom of speech. Guess NOT!
We do but not hate speech n or actions born out of racism and fear. Kapish?

Good point, we need to have internet police. If you post something that upsets someone, you get thrown out of school and lose your job.

We need a zero tolerance policy on offending people.

You can bet this trio has acceptance from many of their comrades at home and in their fraternity.

I started a thread yesterday that was deleted for some reason, someone was actually arguing that the woman who recanted her story did nothing wrong and was pressured.
If it's material left on unprivatized land it's simply waste (the monument).

No natural rights have been violated that I can see.
