When is one of these professors gonna stick up for themselves? These people are supposed to be teachers. More like pushovers. Tell them to go # themselves, and don't apologize for that either.


Have you ever gone to college?

You know, to learn, not drink.

There have been teachers/professors who have, and they get stabbed by the admin and loose their job.


There is no leadership. The $$ is crazy, and if there is a riot-serious demonstration, that sweet sweet money that those "kids" pay for the college experience may stop or slow. Can't have that.

Lol. You don't go to college to learn. Who told you that?

You go to college to get breastfed and have your diaper changed.

I understand you all now. Makes sense, sadly.

In these situations I really feel like it would benefit everyone if the apology was just "I'm sorry if you found something offensive, it was in no way intended to be". That's more than you need to say. I get that it's a bit of a copout but it's going to be impossible to know every new thing people are getting upset over, and you really shouldn't apologize if it's something this innocuous.

Complete pathetic reaction to having late teens early 20 somethings question his families personal style and decorating skills. What a puss.



This is why you're my main man. Totally agree.

If I were in his shoes, I would have told any offended parties to go F themselves. Why? Because none of the offended parties were ever near cotton or hard labor ever in their life. Bet on it.

If it wasn't for cotton many African Americans would still be in Africa not being able to afford to eat, let alone being on state funded Affirmative Action Higher Education Programs.

I had to look it up. It's a small private Christian college, probably more conservative than most colleges - oops.




It is a liberal arts institution which has a smallish student base and is ranked #147 nationally. It is actually less conservative than you have opined

So....they should be thankful cotton was a boom in the south and their ancestors were slaves?

How 'bout leaving the small Christian college's private actions to themselves, nosey nellie. Nobody rioted, nobody got exploded, nobody ran anyone over with a car. Seems to me like both parties were nice about it, and it was no big deal. This is about as worthy of a thread as a liberal's toenail clippings.





I have a fantastic idea for you. Until such time as you become a moderator, you leave the moderating up to the #ing moderators. Nobody elected you to any position and I'd wager a few could do without your arrogance. Don't like the thread, stay the # out of it.

I could see if he had a Sambo doll or was playing Al Jolson records but this is just like the other thread about Hobby Lobby. Overly sensitive weenies being overly sensitive.


Why Al Jolson records?

I guess if cotton plants are causing this much outrage, I can understand...never mind.

True, and this is why I find such a problem with the pathetic leadership. The students know they have the schools by the short hairs and are basically blackmailing them. If I am reading this stupid situation correctly, it is "Either take what teenagers are saying seriously or the students will tear down the schools (worse case)."

Al Jolson.

Back in the day, this was a thing, sadly.

I can see being offended over something like the above... But a cotton plant seems a bit overly sensitive.
