There’s controversy brewing on the campus of Tulane University, as one fraternity built a wall around its house and put Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s name and slogan, “Make America Great Again,” on it. In response, some of the Green Wave’s football players went to the house, owned by the Kappa Alpha fraternity, and literally took down the wall.
Video of the players’ actions was posted to Twitter by Philip Lewis of Mic News.
Now, to be fair, this was not an arbitrary action on Kappa Alpha’s part. The wall around the house is a fraternity tradition ahead of its annual “Old South” formal, as was reported by Wilborn P. Nobles III of NOLA.com, and adding Trump’s sign was claimed to be done out of satire.
Though I’m never one to condone destruction of private property, the reasoning behind the football team’s response isn’t entirely unjustified. Trump is already a majorly polarizing figure in America today and though supporting him is one’s right, Kappa Alpha putting his name and logan on its wall was in poor taste.
