"Lynching" of two white men is performance art

Earlier this December, students walking in a Northern California university came upon this grotesque sight:
lynching1
KTXL Fox40 reports, Dec. 15, 2013, that Christina Edwards, a black senior at Sacramento State University, “lynched” two white men by hanging them from a tree with a thick rope, and calls it “performance art.”
The men were reportedly actors and were in no real danger during the project. The “lynching” took place during the day while students were still on campus, before Sacramento State University began its Christmas-New Year break. 
Edwards defended her project to KTXL Fox40: “The purpose of this performance was to bring to light social injustices and the issue of inequality that impacts me and my community as a whole.” She says she chose to illustrate this time in history by using race reversal, in an effort to shine new light on an old but standing matter, and that she had followed all campus procedures.
But the university doesn’t see it that way. Sacramento State University President Alexander Gonzalez released a statement that says, in part: “The university did not approve the display, and I want to assure everyone that I am working to address the multiple issues raised by this incident.”
Here’s another view of the “lynching” on Instagram:

Can you imagine the OUTCRY and OUTRAGE if a white student were to hang two black men from a tree as “performance art”?

How creepy does it get!!! What demented person came up with this idea? Yes, the school certainly does need to look into this!

None living today experienced slavery. They can accuse and point their fingers all they want, but they can live free if they so choose.The Civil War was not about slavery anyway; it was about state’s rights. There was a movement to free the slaves already being discussed in the south before the war began. One which would integrate them into the culture. Whites and blacks took advantage of the so called reconstruction of the south after the war, and it ultimately hurt the relationship between the two races. There are those who benefit by keeping others in bondage. This will… Read more »

If blacks and Liberals Dems are lynched, is that art?

She’s lying and this act was tantamount to attempting to foment riot or race war. I think she is need of some sensitivity training, which is what whites are usually subjected .

Great post Dr. Eowyn! Two white guys hanging from a tree! For a moment it looked like the gay rights parade in Tehran. How exactly does this help race relations in America? To accuse whites of being ready to do this kind of thing to black people, is to add fuel to the fire of those who are seeking the extermination of white people. And an increase in violence against white people is bound to give rise to a retaliatory movement like the KKK. This issue is dead. The only people practicing slavery right now are muslims and sex traffickers.… Read more »

I’m surprised Jamie Fox isn’t up for an award for his execrable movie, Django Unchained.

“social injustices and the issue of inequality that impacts me and my community as a whole”….ah, playing the victim card I see. Too bad she can’t spend more time trying to improve her situation and that of “her” community.

While the Blacks, at one time, were discriminated against, it is not the fault of White people today. Hellywood is very guilty of stereotyping people; just consider the Old Westerns that made Native Americans appear to be savages and scalpers of White folk. Scalping was introduced by the Europeans and was not originated by Native Americans. If reparations are going to be paid; it needs to go to Native Americans for our ancestors that died on the Trail of Tears. Another group that should be paid reparations, if that ever happened, are the Chinese Coolies. The Chinese were treated like… Read more »

Remember one thing. Who sold these slave to the slave traders? Their tribal leaders, so if they want unwarranted restitution go to them. Anyone in this country has the God given right to make something of themselves. If you choose to be lazy and play the race card you will gain nothing. I have gotten so sick of this race card these past five years and these socialist democrats pushing it. This liberal is just trying to incite a fight and should be expelled.

What’s interesting, too, on the slavery issue is that the British supported American slavery to the bitter end, to the point of even supporting the South in the Civil War – the issue of course was cotton and the duties imposed by the North, coupled with residual angst.

As a society we are being desensitized to violence against white people. This is another example of it.

I’m part Irish and I feel reparations should be paid for the incredible amounts of booze my people were forced to drink while building the Erie Canal and all those early American construction projects. Special reparation should be made to Ted Kennedy’s next of kin as he bravely fought a 60 year losing battle to spare his people shame and ignominy by drinking all the booze on the East Coast. Let’s join our hearts in solemn and holy accord as we reach out to the Irish survivors of the racist manufacturers of wine, scotch, rye, bourbon, whiskey, rum, sangria, vodka,… Read more »

Performance art?? For real? Just so wrong and it is not about race, stupid person who did this. Just because you are black makes this OK? And you wonder why the nation is polarized? I lost over half of my family in the holocaust as they were LITHUANIANS, heroes as they mostly died as freedom fighters still free when they died, some in the camps. I will actually never fully know. I refuse to scream and holler for reparations of snivel about the persecution and horrors. Yes, the holocaust was a terrible thing and one that should NEVER be forgotten.… Read more »

I recall that a young man was recently confronted by campus police at another school and prevented from handing out the Constitution, but this is allowed.

Talk about a double standard!
Do you suppose if some theatre students at the same school where this lynching occured decided to stage a mock trial of an alleged president under the name of art it would be allowed?

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this excellent post. What happened here is deplorable and there is no logical explanation for staging such hatred, nor justification for same.
