    To even remotely infer racism in the case of our students/fans doing face paint for a BLACKOUT game or even for a regular game given our school colors consist of BLACK and gold is pure idiocy. I understand where black facepaint has been racially motivated at times in movies, events etc, but never in this case. Must be a slow day for those faculty looking for ways to earn their 6 figure salaries.

    Haven't even clicked the link yet, predicting author to be Brittany Anas...3, 2, 1...

    2 seconds later: AND WE HAVE A WINNER! Haven't read, but assume it will be worthless, just like she is as a journalist.

    PC gone insane.

    Brittany, if I go to a CU football game painting my face gold, would that be considered racist towards people of Chinese heritage? What about a Nebraska fan who paints his face red? Would you consider that racist towards people of native American heritage?

    Exactly, maybe she should waste her time saying team names like the Redskins are racist, I don't see her calling Oakland fans racist.

    To be fair, she was reporting on something happening with the Faculty Assembly. It was a report, not an opinion column. The ones who should be bashed are the CU Faculty Assembly for even making this an issue. The best part of the article were the comments at the end, :lol:

    Even worse is a CU Fan thinking our school colors are BLACK and gold. They are not.

    Thanks for the history lesson smartass. Being a 3rd generation Buff I know the "official" school colors and have always known. However our advertised colors and acknowledged colors from fans, coaches etc is black and gold. Good luck finding the official colors on CU clothes in the CU bookstore.

    I wonder how the black guy on the right feels about being called racist.


    Stupidest article. Author and entire committee should be shown the door for wasting school resources and my time reading that crap.

    Maybe I am missing it but is this Anus chick's email on there. I think I want to completely offend her personally.

    Nevermind... found it.

    Black is one of our school colors, whether some article on the website says it is or not. What do we wear to all home games? What colors have we had pride in? What colors do our players rap about?

    Black and Gold for life.

    I am offended that people our offended by the black at games. The sad part is that I dont doubt that these people are serious.

    W.T.F.???

    I assure the CU faculty that if they go in active search of offensive racial gestures, you will only perpetuate the problem.

    Jesus H. Are you ****ing kidding me? Really?

    People aren't really hoping to eliminate racial inequality, they're searching for a code-of-conduct that makes them feel superior. They're no different than a first grader that tattles on a classmate for saying the "fart" word.

    ****ing unbelievable. They've really outdone themselves.
