And just what are the "racial implications" Robin? Was it because the bear was black? So the fact that these kids find a dead cub that has been hit by a car and place it on campus with Obama signs (2 of them) on its body makes it racist? PLEASE! You are part of a growing number of conspiracy generators that keep this world stirred up with fear and hatred. I voted for Obama, I didnt vote for a black man. Remember, Obama isnt a Black man. He is 50% white and black. Guess that makes him a "Whack man" or a "Blite man".

Robin is the type of loonie-tune who could find racism in anything. It is also the type to keep stirring the pot of chit when it suits it's agenda. I bet it is squeeky clean.

Robin, please don't be one that goes around with your antenna out and make any issue racial.
I would be supporting you if you called for a complete and thorough investigation by the university and the media for such questions as why this was allowed to happen on a tax payer supported institution or why the students were not kept busy getting an education which cost the tax payer a lot of money.
Also, I question why the officials of the university and the media for not completing an unbiased investigation immediately in view of the fact that they know what happened when the media, officials at Duke, politicians, and so called civic leaders tried to invent a situation that was not supported by truth and facts in the case of the students at Duke.
Accusations that Robin makes without justification are inflammatory, evil and without merit.
No useful purpose is served.

If the bear had Bush, Palin, or McCain signs on it,
liberals would be praising the WCU students,
and demanding the rest of us respect their free-speech rights.

this rush to racialize everything is getting tedious. And, Robin, the only folks making hay of Obama's race are the candidate, some white Democrats, and the press. The right opposes him on a policy level.

I realize that is a difficult concept to grasp when you are committed viewing everything through a racial prism. The students were near a college campus; how many McCain signs do you suppose they could have found? Even if such signs had been readily available, not using them does not make one racist.

I get mixed messages. Was one of the 7 students involved in this "racist" event black or not?

Dayum, finally someone else who agrees that Obama is not a black man. Miracles never cease to amaze me. BTW Robin, take a chill pill. These were typical college younguns.

Couldn't agree more. Last time I checked Obama was as much white as black. Why hasn't someone picked up on this and run with it? Additionally there were other campaign signs used in this prank, but our biased media has only mentioned the Obama signs.

this will teach the bears to marry and intermingle and associate outside of their social stratus. it is a bit extreme to murder someone for a social gaff but i guess someones feelings was really hurt.

god bless dixie and god bless the klan.
