<quoted text>SAD DAY for UVA Wise---not really, nobody pays any attention to this wanta-be school. UVA-Wise is a disgrace to UVA. I mean anybody can get admitted to that school unlike Charlottesville where you actually have to be intelligent.
WANTA-BE? That school has been around for many many years before it became a part of UVA. They have graduated some prestigeous people from that school- I will check out a list for you. BTW- which "prestigeous" school can YOU proove that YOU GRADUATED from? Or High School for that matter. I hate when people put small town colleges down because they are not Harvard or W & M. Do you have the $$ to go to any other than a college like this? If so- go but don't look down your nose at ours bubba!

"ROTFLMAO at this statement. Believe me if it had been 5 white guys beating up a black guy it would have been all about race. The laws are on the books for a reason and YES these 5 should be tried for HATE CRIMES.

I will agree it's a very sad day for UVA Wise, overall they are a great college." To the person who made this statement and all the others of you who made fun of my post....I'm a white woman and it just so happens that I'm not a racist. That's why I said what I did. I'm not like most of you on here that look at things in "black and white". I think it's time that most of you grew up and realized what century we're living in. You've got your bad seeds on both sides. It doesn't matter what your color is. The same thing could have happened with all black students or all white students. The only reason it's being made into such a big deal is because of the fact that it was black on white. My main point was that we needed to let the courts handle it. They would figure out what happened, and why and do what needed to be done. It's not our place to judge. There is so much hatred in these posts that it is unbelievable. It's hard to believe that some of you have been to reduced to the levels that you have by putting others down on here just to try to make a point....which becomes mute after you open your mouths with the insults. Why not try to at least act like adults. BTW, OldFriend, you're quite right, I attended that college when it was CVC. It is and was a wonderful college with or without the UVA on it.
Now, make as much fun as you want, but at least I'm behaving like an adult.

What did they do to Robert Jones from Lebanon? Did they slap him on the wrist and say dont do it anymore? I dont care whether he is black or white he should have to serve time for this. Theres just no excuse when Russell County gave him a full scholorship to go to college and then him behave in this way. Its time he gets whats coming to him. When he was at our school he thought he was all that because he was dating a white girl, but I seen his grades and he did not make A's and B's maybe D's and F's.

I agree he's human and young but he deserves everhng he got or gettiing coming to him and its not because he's black!!!

The grades you receive on TEST and what is recorded on your report are two different things. It's not just Lebanon its every damn school in the system, grades are GIVEN to athletes. Even at the High School level sports are more important that academics. That C is an overall GPA as well, can have a D or F in once or two courses and overall you will have a C average if you get a "A" in a easy course.

Its clear that you work for the DOC and as a correctional officer. Your mad because with your lower education all you could do in life was watch someone behind bars. Now I know that you come in contact with rapist, murderers and what not. But dont get mad and take your rants out just because your cousin did the same thing to your kin folk as the prisoners have done to others.

This is a sad day for UVA at Wise, but at least we can be thankful that it wasn't like other colleges where some student goes off with a gun and shoots and kills a bunch of innocent students and bystanders. Yes, I'm sorry for the student that got hurt, and the players should have never done what they did but let's let the court system seal with it and keep our noses out of it. It isn't our place to speculate or ridicule or call names. It has nothing to do with color....it has to do with an assault on a fellow student and nothing more.
"Sad Day" for UVA-Wise?" The very existence of the school is a "sad day." Unqualified instructors, corrupt financial aid department, many clubs and programs they claim to have don;t actually exist, little student support (like NO counseling department thought they claim to have one), the "jocks" have free run of the place and are NOT subject to any student regulations, an incomeptent housing department, and....some of the snobbiest and snooty people imagineable! And before i get slammed for being just disgruntled, in my line of work i have dealt with countless former students there, and they tell the same story...the place is a lying, incompetent, unfriendly, money-grubbing hole!!

Ya'll are some segregated and discriminated people! Ya'll are worse then the people that committed the crime. The victim of what happened isn't an angel. If you knew the people involved, they were good guys and caught up in the wrong time and place. Now if it was white on white crime then ya'll wouldn't say shit. Yes it was wrong for what they did but race and color had nothing to do with it. Not real mature
Race and color had everything to do with it. Blacks are much more violent than any other race. Just look at the inner cities and you tell me who is committing the most crimes. Let a white person go into one of these black neighborhoods and they will be lucky to make it out alive. Blacks make up 13% of the U.S. population but black males make up over half of the U.S. prison population. You have black "youths" all over the country going around sucker punching and beating up on white people.

Not to mention that if a white person farts in front of a black they will be charged with a hate crime. However, blacks can beat the hell out of a white person and rarely do they ever get charged with a hate crime.

So hell yes, it has EVERYTHING to do with race and color. I would tell UVA-Wise that we do not want these violent jungle apes here and this is exactly why.

UVA-Wise is a place that cheats students out of money & out of housing, with snooty students, promises of clubs & organizations that do not exist in reality, incompetent staff, hack instructors, and a policy that lets "jocks" violate campus policy constantly!!! And if you deny it, you are either lying or uninformed!! It is not becasue it is a "small" school, but becasue it is a f****d up one!! Trust me, i work in education and deal with many students and/or former students of UVA-Wise, so I DO KNOW what really goes on there!!

CVC has been incompetent to a long time. Our schools are in amess because
most of the teachers come from there. I like to see local people get jobs but not at the expense of our students.We need people with new ideas and more exposure to outside the area to bring in new ideas.The real. UVa got disgraced big time when Wise was added to their name.It is a sad excuse for a place supposedly turning out professionals. It should be more like a skills center.It is so funny how they think they are big time. You would think they were this big well known university. When they started tail baiting at fball games, I thought that was hysterical. Wise Co. Wannabes. How sad it is that people know nothing of real universities and real teams. Just another reason to make fun of the locals.
