https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6676677/Blackface-lynch-pics-North-Carolina-Chapel-Hill-Yearbook-emerge-Roy-Cooper-graduated.html

This article is misleading which is why I want to show an example of how the media tries to ruin people that may be innocent.  Gov. Brown is taking heat because he’s calling out for the VA Governor to resign when UNC’s year book has similar black face pics. It does make him look like a Hypocrite and perhaps should have checked his own year book before casting stones at other.

It’s easy to look at these pictures now with disgust, but 40 years ago times were different and what was considered humor then would never fly now.  Comedians like Don Rickles couldn’t operate like this.

Now every potential or current politician will be going through there year books to see if any dirt is in there.

With all of that said, another bad look for UNC.

Another bad look for UNC? From a 1979 yearbook? Whatever. I’m sure it’s never happened at a school like Clemson…founded literally founded by a klan leader. I guess it’s just a another bad look for Clemson. Something tells me that there have been a few more blackface parties at a school in nowhere SC than in a place like Chapel Hill that had the first black mayor in the south. Just a wild guess though.

Weird we had another year of record applications. 10th in a row. 42k for 5k spots.
How will we ever survive? Hey

How does this tie to Roy Cooper? He was alive then? Well so was I and so were you. I guess it’s our fault too.

Throwing rocks from glass houses… UNC has buildings built from slave labor. Kenan Stadium was in honor of a man who led a group of white supremacists that actually did kill black people in a massacre - not just talk about it. I know, they got a new plaque so it’s in honor of his son, as of 2018.

It was just a thread about a legitimate news story. CU_Tigers4life actually gave the context that it was 40 years ago and e’re seeing this because of how times have changed. Your own school essentially called it a bad look. Rather than address it in some reasonable way, you went on the attack.

Yeah cause that is why it was brought up…I addressed it in a very meaningful way. I pointed out your hypocrisy as always. Your school was founded by a Klan leader. YOU are the ones who live in a glass house.

I went out of my way not to stoke the embers when the opportunity is served up on a platter. UNC has not had the best run of positive press in the last few years and my “bad look” comment is in that context.

And I made a true statement. What’s the problem? No one from Clemson should ever talk about another schools racial history.

And I made a true statement. What’s the problem? No one from Clemson should ever talk about another schools racial history.

If I wanted to make this a UNC racial thing I would have.  UNC is actually the victim of collateral damage because the Gov. shot his mouth off like so many do before look internally.  Unc won’t be the only school that will have actions of early generations expose.  Others will have to deal with a “bad look”.

Very good. Where did you find such info? Oh you mean UNC? Yeah definitely trying to hide things.

Nice.

I’m sure Clemson has a similar thing. Oh it doesn’t? I guess when your school is a half assed version of Auburn you don’t have much history to talk about.

Oh and BTW Saunders Hall doesn’t exist anymore…nor does Silent Sam. I think it is because we are covering stuff up.


I’m sure your mediocre farm school is also addressing its racist past. It isn’t? What a surprise.

I think a lot of colleges and Universities that date back to at least mid 1800’s beginnings can have stories like that.  As I said.  I was a sign of the times.  Sometimes very flawed people can also do good things.

I never said they were trying to hide it. They’ve been open about it - you’re the one that can’t seem to accept it.

I really don’t care if Clemson does this or not. The whole country has a racism in its past. Clemson certainly does too. An article in the student newspaper doesn’t change that.

Yes, Silent Sam came down in an act of vandalism.

I have no problem accepting anything. You two dipshits took shots at my school which is exactly why this was posted. I simply pointed out your school is named after a Klan leader and YOU feel the need to respond. True statement so what’s the problem?

I guess you seem to have trouble accepting it.
