Anonymous Scumbag Selflessly Brings Attention To Campus Race Issues
At a university where students are largely silent with their bigoted values, one anonymous student made the bold decision to deface a Black Lives Matter sign Friday, thereby destroying any lingering semblance of racial progress at Boston College.
Absolutely inspiring! Even though this vandalism was clearly fueled by a desperate need for attention, this defender of justice has not yet come forward to be recognized for their good deed of spouting blatant, unabashed racism. Perhaps their nuanced underlying message is that any one of us could have committed this act!
While some students have pointed out that this person is confusing their First Amendment rights with simply being a bigoted asshole, it’s clear that our free-speech vigilante deserves recognition for daring to say what so many other racist students are afraid to say.
Just think about it: the student could be any member of the BC community, but they are most likely someone who calls out the N-word while singing along to rap songs at parties. But it’s okay because they have that one black friend, Carl… or was it Chris?
Our noble do-gooder is probably someone who is only outwardly racist while intoxicated, while harboring deeply ingrained racial prejudices that are silenced with sobriety. They may even regularly claim that they “aren’t racist,” further drawing attention to their own feelings and away from the communities affected by prejudice.
Although the student helped break down the hopes of people of color at BC, demolished an opportunity for progress, and ultimately proved that the university is not the post-racial utopia it purports to be, they have also drawn attention to a much more important point: black lives don’t matter to racists. Who knew?!
So step on up and claim your prize, you brave social justice warrior!
The Boston College administration had yet to issue a meaningful response to the incident, or to even congratulate the offender for expressing themselves so thoughtfully. Who could have guessed that years of complacency and silence in the face of injustice serves to encourage racists?
