So here's an opening bid:
When two students at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater posted a picture on Snapchat wearing what appeared to be blackface, the school's chancellor quickly - and publicly - condemned the photo. But days later, Beverly Kopper backed off when it was revealed the students were simply wearing skin care treatment masks.
“Last night a disturbing racist post that was made to social media was brought to my attention,” Kopper said in a letter released on Thursday. “This post was hurtful and destructive to our campus community. While social media can certainly bring about positive change, it can also be a place that deeply hurts and harms others.”
Kopper's antennae was up following an unrelated racially-charged incident and complaints from some of the school's black students. In her initial letter, she announced the formation of a faculty group for the purpose of meeting with students to work towards an “action plan” for combatting racism on campus.
