What Are The Odds This Is A Fake Stunt?
From Fox News:
Black tape was found over the pictures of black professors outside a Harvard Law School lecture hall Thursday, one day after students on the campus marched to express solidarity with black students at colleges across the country.
Campus police are investigating the matter, which was brought to light after a law student shared the image on Twitter.
"I am saddened and angered by this act," Martha Minow, a dean, wrote in an email to students. She was meeting with students at the school to discuss the incident, The Boston Globe reported.
The paper reported that the tape was eventually removed and replaced with positive comments about the professors.
Dozens of students gathered in the Science Center Plaza at about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday to support black activists on other college campuses.
The Harvard Crimson reported that the protesters were joined by administrators, including Harvard President Drew G. Faust.
"I think we've got a lot of work to do," Faust said after the protest, according to the Crimson, "and I look forward to working with the community of students and others to make sure everybody at Harvard feels included." http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/11/19/black-tape-found-covering-faces-black-law-professors-at-harvard-law/?intcmp=hplnws
So, what are the odds this was just fake incident?
Well, my guess the odds are pretty that this "incident" is fake.
First, there have beyond numerous fake racist incidents because the racist thugs are desperate to find anything remotely racist to promote to promote their racist views, whether the protestors are black, white, yellow, brown or pink.
2nd, these protesting thugs got a pretty fast reaction from the administration, which seems awfully suspicious to me.
Then you have the supposed act itself. If you were going to make a racist statement, risk getting into trouble or even arrested, why just put tape on a black professor's picture?
Why not deface by tagging it? (graffiti)
Or tear down the picture?
Or black out the pictures so you cannot see the pictures?
So the odds that this is a fake racist incident?
Probably a 95 in 100 chance.
