When I was logging on to RTsoft, I found this interesting news on MSN. http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-gen149.gif

The story was a female university graduate, Ashley Powell (Black), who was hanging signs saying "White/Black only" signs all over water fountains, restrooms, and even elevators.

I can easily guess on where this idea came from. The students at the university were shocked to see these signs and reported them. Not only is this racist and wrong, people are saying this is an act of terrorism.

I don't understand what is wrong with people today... http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-sad033.gif

But what do you think about her actions? http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-confused004.gif

Seems like someone's weird interpretation of a prank to me, I don't know why people get so messed up about something like that.

Quite obvious.
Me and my buddies once bought the toilet male/female stickers and put male stickers on female bathrooms and vice versa.
it was hilarious. the school tried to find out who did it (theres cameras in every hallway) but to mock the school further, we were wearing paper bags over our heads. It was quite funny.

I'd have to agree that this is wrong and racist. However, what's up with those people calling it an act of "terrorism"? They're exaggerating too much.

I'd have laughed. Then again, I hear that americans take racism very seriously.

Still, just a harmless prank.

I read more on the article and saw that Ashley is black (I somehow thought she was white, not trying to be racist or anything)

I googled her name and what appeared was a black girl with a account on Linkedln.

She may have done it as a protest to make white/black people feel stupid for what they say. For example some students may get bullied for their skin color and she just made the whole act of racism look stupid by making too obvious sings. Seems like an unusual way of solving a problem; by making people who cause the problem see how stupid they act.

Have any of you read the entire article?

The black student made it to remind people of the actions that happened in the 50's, and was making a point on how it made people feel.

You should have seen all the clock bomb satire after that.
