Brickbat: A Black Day



University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Chancellor Beverly Kopper sent out a campus-wide email condemning a "disturbing racist post" by two students that was "hurtful and destructive to our campus community." Kopper believed the two had posted online a photo of themselves in blackface. In fact, if she'd spoken to them before she sent out her email, she would have found they had taken a photo of themselves getting a facial and were wearing exfoliation masks.
