RALEIGH - The head of the state's NAACP chapter today called for a "strong response and punishment" for the N.C. State University students who painted racist and threatening graffiti aimed at President-elect Obama.
The lack of such a response "creates a hostile environment and exacerbates the possibility of continuing activity," NAACP leader William J. Barber II wrote to NCSU Chancellor James L. Oblinger.
Campus police said Thursday that four students who admitted painting the graffiti in NCSU's Free Expression Tunnel will not be charged with a hate crime. Under the state's hate crimes law, they would have had to commit another type of crime, for which the language in the graffiti would have been an aggravating factor.
I have try to write my opinion on this issue, however it keeps coming out the wrong way. So each to their own. However I will said that I feel the NAACP is making a mountain out of a mole hill. I feel what they are really piss about is the n-word, if so then they need to get their own to stop using the word, after awhile the word will fall out of use and be forgotten.
