Daily Mail – A Kansas State University student who posted a Snapchat that showed her wearing a black mud mask with a racial slur in the caption is no longer with the school.
The picture, which shows Paige Shoemaker and her friend Sadie Meier wearing L’Oreal Clay facial masks, was captioned: ‘Feels good to finally be a n****r’.
Shoemaker said she would have been a senior at KSU this year, but was informed by administrators this week that she was no longer a student after the Snapchat debacle.
First of all the Daily Mail did this girl dirty with this headline.
As you can clearly see from the un-edited Snapchat, she went soft A, not hard R. Not even trying to be funny, that’s a pretty important distinction right there. Soft A is dumb but more flexible – only hardcore racists use a hard R. So that’s legitimately bad journalism.
But, as harsh as this punishment may be, I won’t be sitting over here crying for Paige. I mean I’m just a broken record at this point. If you post yourself with A) an N bomb and 2) blackface on your fucking Snapchat story, you’re literally too dumb to feel bad for or just be alive in general. Which I guess makes it kind of counterproductive to take her source of education away, but whatever.
Also I think Paige thinks “blackface” is like a specific brand of paint you buy in the store.
