Racist Tweet Causes Uproar At University Of South Carolina

SOCIAL MEDIA SLUR PROMPTS SCHOOL TO LAUNCH INVESTIGATION

|| By FITSNEWS || Back when our founding editor attended the University of South Carolina there was no such thing as “WiFi.” But apparently the WiFi at USC isn’t very good.

In fact, according to screen capture from Snapchat (something else which didn’t exist back when Sic Willie attended USC), the WiFi at USC “blows.”

Why does it blow?  According to the screencap – which depicts a young white woman drawing on an erasable white board – the number one reason is “n*ggers.”

Wow …

Really?

Seriously … what the hell is with white college kids these days?

Did that whole Oklahoma drama teach them nothing? Or closer to home … Clemson “Cripmas?”

Anyway, here’s the offensive screencap – which has prompted a University-wide investigation and the obligatory reminder that racism and incivility are not tolerated at the school. You know, except when they are.

According to reporter Andy Paras at WCIV TV 4 (ABC – Charleston, S.C.), social media users identified the woman in the photo – prompting her to respond that the image was “misunderstood.”

“I was not writing all that,” the woman reportedly wrote in response to being called out. “This is very misunderstood.”

Her twitter account has since been deleted, Paras reported.

Don’t get me wrong, racial rudeness is totally uncouth behavior. Nevertheless, this is yet another immaterial “whitey done wrong” story that gains much more attention than the often much more material “black folks done wrong” stories… you know, those material stories which include murder, rape, armed robbery, burglary, etc., etc, at rates way above their percentage of the population. So yes, ladies and gentlemen, these types of stories are but a diversion to the cruel and violent reality facing this county more and more daily. As for me, I’ll begin to care about stories like this when black leaders are called out by the mainstream press for their obvious racism and when black crime rates, government support, and education failure rates begin to correspond much more with their percentage of this state and nation’s population.

Actually, half Cherokee (Western Band), since race and ethnicity are so important to you. I don’t expect anything for it. And no, I’m not confused at all. I am who and what I am through my own efforts and talents. An expression of one’s beliefs (right or wrong), ESPECIALLY at a STATE school, should be tolerated within reason. Hurt feelings simply don’t rise to that. No threat of violence or ability for her to hold anyone back -just an offensive viewpoint. Do we suspend black students for using that word? No? Why not? Do we suspend them for using the (offensive) term “redneck” when referring to a white person? No? Why not? Is one person’s being belittled more valuable or important than another’s? I guess that whole “equal protection under law” idea is just inconvenient. Ethe, remember the Buffalo Soldiers? Yeah, special place in Hell for them…. they took money to murder entire nations out west… but you’re proud of that, aren’t you?
Oh, and now you have CREATED more racism through the suspension than existed before. Now you have created a VICTIM (or at least as much of one as existed by viewing the photo). It has gone from “poor ignorant girl” to “poor VICTIMIZED girl” because of the administration’s actions. And whatever racism was inside her (and might have been eradicated through positive contact) is now permanently seared into her…. all because of hyper-sensitivity.

This is just another farce. Laws and values should never be cherry picked the way the do the “N” and “F” words especially. My wife and I were at Sams Club gassing our car a couple of weeks ago. We we waiting on a black man in front of us in the line. He left his door open on the car while searching for several minutes for his card I suppose. The radio was blaring with I guess Rap music. Every other word was the “N” word or the “F” word. It was sickening. But if blacks are doing this so publicly why the heck should any white person be condemned for anything of this nature. I will not use the “F” word ford it is sickening the way it is used. But Nigger will be in my vocabulary not because I like to use it but I refuse to be brow beat by the PC crowd.

Not a writing expert, but the word she is writing on the last line shown in this photo is in ALL CAPS. Not one other capital letter was used in the rest of the script on the board. AND yes – PARKING has always sucked on campus at Carolina – but you would think she would have at least capitalized another word. Where is the video? Does someone have a link with her writing the prior points on video?

The real Q is what professor has allowed this to happen in his classroom?

Reply
Florist Glump April 5, 2015 at 2:58 am

I noticed the same thing IRT the word she is writing being the only one in all caps.

Also, I was more concerned about “ratchets” being on the list… had no idea what that was until I checked UrbanDictionary. Definitely something that one would wish into the cornfield, but I don’t know how it would affect WiFi.

Maybe ratchets are the type that use way more than their share of bandwidth… if that is even a thing anymore… I don’t know.

Carolina has over 20,000 students, and this is what causes a regional stir?

On the same day, students all over the place were screwing, drinking, drugging, cheating on each other and in their classes, beating landlords out of rent, driving drunk, and corn-holeing each other.

And this is what we hear on the radio and in the paper? This country needs to get a grip.

Similar to Elfego, I stopped to fill up last week and nice silver Jag pulled up to the opposite pump. The stereo was blasting, my windows were reverberating from the bass. I don’t know the song or the artist but every 3th word was Nigger and every 2nd word was Fuck. The entire time I was filling up all you could hear was “Unghhh Fuck a Nigger , ohh yeahhh. Unghh… The black man who got out and went into the store turned off the engine but left the stereo on, I guess so I could enjoy his selection. This true story exemplifies the “double standard” as applied to the word Nigger. It’s either acceptable or it’s not. You can’t have it both ways. Any white person accused of racist behavior for using the word Nigger need only play one of these “songs” to the accusers.. “Damn Niggers Fuck em!”

30 some years ago I was in basic training at Ft. Dix. Our drill sgt was exhorting us to beat the other platoon in PT testing. One of our platoon guides, an Hispanic kid from NYC said “how we gonna do that when they got more niggers than we do?” I was dumbfounded, but it turned out he was using the term as a substitute for people. Which is consistent with how it appears above. Never heard a white person use it that way, though.
