Weeks after a poop swastika added fuel to the University of Missouri protest fire, we have another racist pooper on the loose — or so students at Vanderbilt thought.
Vanderbilt University police responded to a call at 5:52 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17 about a bag of feces in front of the Black Cultural Center. The bag of doodie supposedly caused emotional scarring to many in the community according to Hidden Dores, a student led organization for minorities and people of color.
Hidden Dores denounced the deplorable act on Facebook in a post that has since been deleted, writing:
The Hidden Dores team is appalled to announce that our demonstration yesterday was met this morning with a vile act. … As many of us sit in grief, recognize that these types of actions are what we speak of when we note the reality of exclusion and isolation of students of color and specifically Black(sic) students on our campus. This act has hurt many and will nto be received lightly.
Fuck you, poop! Get your racist shit out of here! Stop oppressing people with your foul odor and general awfulness!
I can’t believe some racist sicko out there is so messed up in the head they’d put feces on someone’s porch.
However, upon further investigation, the poop turned out not to be racist. Instead, it came from the service dog of a Vanderbilt student who is visually impaired. Junior Stephanie Zundel posted on Facebook and FOX Sports posted it for us.
From FOX Sports:
“I would like to inform everyone on this campus that no racial threat occurred. I am a blind student on this campus with a guide dog. I was meeting with a group last night to go over our debate for one of my sociology classes. My dog did her business outside on the grass and I picked it up and put it in a bag like always…I did not want to bring the feces inside and make the building smell, so I left it outside by the door.”
After the poop culprit came clean, so did Hidden Dores, who posted an “apology” on Facebook. I put “apology” in quotes because the apology is pretty, well, shitty:
In short: Sorry we were misinformed, but we were too busy fighting systematic oppression to check our facts.
The apology and management of the group’s Facebook page isn’t going over well with followers. Many Facebook users are accusing whoever runs the group’s page of deleting others’ comments.
In their defense though, they’ve been pretty geeked up with Mizzou-inspired protests for the past week or so:
Regardless, we’ve proven the Mizzou poop swastika was real and debunked racist poop at Vanderbilt all in the past week. What other curve balls you got, world?.
