Great, racists

Racial slur, threat against Obama at UA – Breaking News from The Birmingham News – al.com

I got an email last week from the Provost condemning the tearing down of a poster and a graffiti slur against a political candidate. No further details. Turns out that the candidate was (surprise!) Barack Obama, and that the slur was (surprise!) racial.

The only thing that actually surprised me was that it was at the College of Communication. I figured it would be History, which has traditionally been crawling with neo-Confederates.
