A piñata shaped like a white woman was strung up to a tree at the University of Memphis, then African-American students took turns beating it with a stick.
Where is Al Sharpton when you need him? Isnt this a shocking case of racism?
No, actually it isnt. Turns out the students involved were mere grade school kids, brought on campus for a special Luau party sponsored by the university. The piñata was supposed to represent a hula dancer.
We want to assure our community that no racial or gender animosity was intended, said a university spokesperson.
At worst, this seems like a bad case of multicultural confusion. (Hawaiian luau + Mexican-style piñata = what cultural tradition exactly?)
Luckily, in this case, the racial dynamics were not reversed, with white students and a black piñata strung up to a tree. Imagine the controversy that would have generated.
Nevertheless, the university was compelled to explain itself when the picture started generating backlash after it was posted online.
Its a sad thing when a few kids cant swing at a piñata without unleashing an avalanche of racial grievances. But thats the reality we live in.
This is not racist because we are doing it. But any of you hateful right wing bigots hang black woman from a tree and beat her with a stick on the grounds of a public institution and the Trayvon Martin incident will look like a Sunday school picnic.
He has set back race relations back 30 Years Plus.
Sadly, MLK was the past. The future finds Farrakhan.
I think it’s a Kathy Griffin piñata. I don’t see the problem.
There’s an old joke about jumping on beds, velcro, and pinatas....but it’d probably get me banned.
Not only promoting racism, but violence against women.
Why was the pinata shaped like a human being at all?
Vote for Pedro
It leaves no room for any other outcome other than Zimmerman is guilty of murdering Treyvon.
Meanwhile the nightly injustice of Memphis murders, assaults, robberies, and other horrid nonsense goes on unfettered or noticed.
How the left will ‘spin’ this event:
1) It’s an ‘artistic piece’ (like Christ Piss)
2) They are just ‘passionate’ about their beliefs( anti-white)
3) It’s an expression of Racial Pride!!
4) It’s a venting of 500 years of racial persecution.
5) An exercise of Multiculturalism
6) Conservatives should celebrate this as an example of diversity.
Black racism is truly everywhere. Disgusting...and double-disgusting that nobama, our great leader, apparently supports it.
Thankfully, that POS is dead.
A clear case of hula bashing
Why isn't the administrator being fired for lying? There is NOTHING about that piñata that resembles a hula dancer and there is nothing about traditional hula 'Polynesian' dancers that's 'white.' Naahhhh, the theme in this sick administrator's mind is, "you beat white women and you'll be rewarded with candy or some other tasty treat."
Blacks should be meeting with opposition to fortify their hand in this upcoming election.
There is no color in politics other than green. Obama loathes the minority portion of his base. Their only use is their vote. Once he's got that in a second term, they are dog meat.
Why is it OK to beat stars? What has any star done to you other than provide warmth and energy so you can live?
Race relations in Mogadishu on the Mississippi. Instead of “why can’t we just all get along?”, it’s now “why can’t we just show you how we really feel about you?”
