Is that a rhetorical question?
No. I'll ask again. Do you believe someone who creates a hanging person in a photo is a person who is advocating violence or a race war? A simple question.
Of course it is. Now post your picture of Cathy Griffin or whatever red herring you have.

Someone wants the President of KSU to resign because the Prez is speaking out against white nationalists? Who do you want? David Duke or Rush Limbaugh?

Sure it is. The only reason why you'd agree with Myers is because his comments reflect your values. However, Myers represents all of the K-State family and should be aware of such. His position by default means that he's a reflection of the University, all of us.
No. I agree with Myers because he is taking steps to making K-State a safe place for minorities. I honestly completely forgot he said anything about Trump.
Okay. When did K-State become unsafe for minorities? And in what context is "safe" and "unsafe"? Just asking because the BLM folks conveniently ignore that more white men died at the hands of police last year than did black men. Seems like BLM as it pertains to Kansas State University is a solution looking for a problem.

when matching, or attempting to match, behaviors with lack of responses/clarity, is the question truly rhetorical?

myers's term here has been horrible. he should be replaced. i can't think of a positive contribution he's made beyond raising bloviation to a new level of excellence at anderson hall.
This I agree with. He should run for office.

Since you don’t want to see Jaden McNeil punished, free speech and all, then is it your stance that Kathy Griffin should go unpunished?

Women have had to organize a safety march to raise awareness of sexual violence on campus. LGBT have had to fight constant barrages of bigotry and that's why they organized the drag show, both to raise awareness and to raise funds to support mental health in the LGBT community. One of my friends, an Asian-American minority, was mistaken for a Middle Eastern man and was called a "sand n*****". He subsequently broke the guys knee caps. Another one of my friends, an African American man, was told that "he did not look American and he should leave" by a woman from Andover (alum) over Facebook.

These things happen and you're ignoring them because, somehow, it's an attack on your savior/president/cult leader.
