Another College Reports Racially Tinged Disturbance After Obama’s Win

November 9, 2012

The incident took place at Hampden-Sydney College, a private institution in Virginia that is one of the few remaining all-male colleges in the United States. Christopher B. Howard, the college’s president, wrote in a letter to parents that a group of students shouted racial epithets and threw bottles outside the college’s minority-student union early Wednesday morning in response to the election results. The incident also included threats of physical violence. Mr. Howard, the college’s first African-American president, wrote that he was “terribly disappointed with the students who participated in this harmful, senseless episode including those men who stood idly by and watched it happen.” In a similar incident at the University of Mississippi, two people were arrested.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
