Black art student with glue gun mistakenly thought to be dangerous, caused 4-hour lockdown at university

Well, look on the bright side: Mr Art student isn’t dead. Progress by golly, progress!


#8

Well, it was in New York, not the South, so…

Society is a group effort. AKA we broke it we bought it we gotta fix it. No backsies, sorry.


#9

Somebody got to them before they shouted “He’s commin’ right for us!”

So yes… progress.


#10

NO! I have always claimed I am an alien and my people will return for me.


#11

So now the university will issue an apology to the student and start a dialogue on campus to bring students together so they don’t lose their shit over a black artist right?

I’m just kidding, cue the nopology, doubling-down and digging up a mug shot from the time he got arrested for a broken tail-light by Officer McCracker, complete with picture photoshopped to make him look like what white people think is a “thug”.

The appropriate response would be for the art police to beat him up with their glue sticks.


#14

Sigh. WTF? Worse than the student with the katana handled umbrella.


#15

It’s getting longer.


#16

I’m so tired of this shit.


#17

hey HEY now…we all know exactly how dangerous this could have been.

wait for it…


#18

If he’s like most art students I know, a glue gun would be the least dangerous thing about him. He probably also has:
A kinfe
Exacto blades
Scissors
Hammer
Blow torch
Dozens of flammable chemicals
Empty glass bottles
(possibly drunk from emptying those bottles)
((probably also a little bit high))
Has his eyes on a plasma cutter, but dang those are expensive


#19

Anyone else read the headline as “A student of the black arts…”?


#20

gum erasers. You ever had someone hum one of those at you full force. They hurt man.


#21

No, but I kinda wish I had. That would have been a less depressing story.


#22

You forgot, “Liberal Values”


#23

This coincides nicely with the release of, “Dear White People”.

Maybe we’ll see it crop up in season 2.


#24

They made it into a series, or are you being facetious?


#25

oh no. It is absolutely a series. And its fairly funny.
