This was posted to my college’s Facebook page a little while ago. I have removed names and highlighted what I feel to be the questionable section:
(Student 1) is missing two printed essays. One was written by (Student 2), the other written by (Student 1), with comments by (Professor so-and-so) about how (Student 1) may or may not be a racist writer. Pretty important to read those comments and not be racist, I guess. The (Student 1) paper is titled “(title of paper)” The essays are probably together, in dining hall or library or rock wall or something. Much needed, somewhat nervous. Thanks. Please email (Student 1)
Now, the person who wrote this post is neither student 1 or student 2. They are also not Professor so-and-so. Therefore, isn’t the bolded section completely irrelevant? Shouldn’t the message simply leave out the section from “with comments by” through “I guess”? The (presumed) intent remains: finding the missing essays.
I would venture to say that there is an agenda at play here. Frankly it makes me uncomfortable. I don’t know. Maybe I’m just reading too much into this. Thoughts?
