Here we go again—someone has claimed to act in the name of race equality by doing something entirely racist. A student—of course African-American—“lynched” two white men in effort to demonstrate “race inequality.”
The controversy all started when a black college student, Christine Edwards, hung two white men from nooses around a tree on the Sacramento State University campus. The men of course were in no real danger as they were hanging from harnesses.
Edwards claimed that:
“The purpose of this performance was to bring to light social injustices and the issue of inequality that impacts me and my community as a whole.”
You want to talk about race inequality? What if a white student were to hang two black actors from a tree and call it art? I would hate to see the hell storm of fury that were to rain down on those responsible. But instead, because of the oppression and suffering of her ancestors,–whom she probably doesn’t even know of—during the time of our country’s blurred morals, we have to just accept this as art?
Morgan Freeman said it best when asked what he thought a potential solution for racism would be. He said, “stop talking about it.”
But of course, we can’t do that. What else would race baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson be able to lean on when losing a fight? Surely we can all agree that there will always be bigots and that racism will always exist, but does it exist everywhere? Absolutely not. Racism is a crutch dragged along by those who do not need it.
I wonder if Edwards has ever felt what true oppression feels like. Has she ever seen a black men lynched by a white mob? Most probably not. Yet she feels the need to claim that race inequality impacts her, and wants to use a white lynching to demonstrate it?
Give me a break. Learn to stand on your own feet and quite blaming those not responsible for your imaginative views. White people today didn’t oppress your ancestors, yet we have to pay for the acts of ours?
The university does however say that Edwards didn’t even ask to demonstrate her “art” on campus let alone get approved to do so. University President Alexander Gonzalez said, ”The university did not approve the display, and I want to assure everyone that I am working to address the multiple issues raised by this incident.”

I wonder when we will get to drop the racism talk and when blacks will live in the equality many white ancestors fought for.
What do you guys think of the issue?
