All the Noose That’s Fit to Print
Written by Bwog Staff
Columbia events, in the national spotlight. Kind of. The New York Times ran an article about President Bush, who in a conference yesterday about race relations denounced incidents involving nooses and said: “The noose is not a symbol of prairie justice, but of gross injustice. Displaying one is not a harmless prank.”
The Times mentioned incidents in Jena, La. and our fair Alma Mater as inspiring President Bush to discuss racially-charged incidents and issues of injustice during a Black History Month press conference that is normally used to focus on contributions of black members of society.
Columbia: partially kind of—but not really—changing the way things are done around the White House.
