Stupid Student Halloween Tricks

Auburn University and the University of Mississippi have both expelled students for inappropriate Halloween pranks.  At the U, somebody got a picture of two white students--one dressed as a white police officer holding a gun to the second, who was in blackface.  At Auburn, a group dressed in Ku Klux Klan outfits were photographed gathered around a person in blackface with a noose around his neck.  Yahoo has the storyhere.

I have only one thing to say:  You idiots!  These kids are 18 years old.  There is absolutely no way they could not have known that such pranks would be unacceptable.  Politics aside, these kids should be thrown out of school for the simple reason that they're too stupid.  They're either incapable of learning, or they're incapable of applying their knowledge.  In either case, they don't belong at an institution of higher learning.
