This is part thirteen of a continuing series, background here. Previous drawings can be found here, here, here, here, here, and here, and a billboard for the other six here. This appears in the classroom and office building stairwell nearest my office, and has been left up for months. This is the next to last edition, and soon we will have an index for all thirteen days. There will be a second set from another bulletin board next week.
I am not interested, for those who have asked, in having this display taken down. It's not my job to decide what the university wants to present to students, staff and visitors (read: parents and incoming freshmen visiting campus for orientation). I would rather have this material out there for people to see, as it is my opinion that this is what the campus views as part of its function.
Honestly, I cannot find a connection between the picture and the plaque in this one and for awhile thought the picture was mislabeled except for the giant #5 on the podium. I can only guess that this is a complaint of a lack of political candidates of color. Ironic, if so, and rather dismissive of politicians as being harassing.
UPDATE (Sat.): This was scheduled to go up Wednesday. I don't know why this remained in draft. I will post more of these pictures next week.
