    Um, are we still trying to figure out if it's a hate crime? How obvious can it get, geez.

    When I was a little girl I had a 45 rpm that I played over and over. I was so sure when I grew up the world would be a better place. It was called "Get together":

    "Come on people now,
    Smile on your brother,
    Everybody get together, try and love one another right now.😟

    Absolutely sickened by his murder. It's been described as a "lynching", and I have no doubt in my mind that it was a hate crime. I would say that I couldn't believe this could happen in 2017, but... well, apparently, anything can happen.

    Richard Collins III deserved better than this. :rose::rose::rose:

    the link upthread to the opinion piece "a lynching" said there have been neo Nazi graffiti and flyers seen on campus and brought to attn. of the dean who did nothing and poo poo-ed it.

    its "freedom of speech" but then you get .... this.....
