Post -Racial AmericaYes this is happening in 2013Just last October 2012 a story broke out nationally about Black Students being attacked with Balloons filled with Bleach at the University of Texas. Protests broke out across campus. The concept of these attacks were to “whiten” students of color.Bleach Balloons were also thrown at Asian students. These attacks were racially motivated. Well last week 5 days ago on August 21st, 2013 another Black student was hit with a bleach balloon.Byran Davis was walking by an apartment building on the west campus of the University of Texas when he was hit with a balloon filled with bleach. Luckily he was uninjured. Byron stated “”I don’t feel safe walking around West Campus by myself anymore.”
"Davis contacted the Austin Police Department, who said they’d put a detective on the case. Davis’ friends have told him not to hold his breath though; no prosecution has come from APD’s attention. Many students see no point in reporting the attacks when nothing has been done to stop them, Davis said.
That means there are many bleach bomb attacks in West Campus we don’t know about. The concept behind them is to “whiten” students of color. Bleach also blinds people. Luckily, no one has been blinded yet in West Campus. The very real possibility is hideous” (Burntorangereport.com)

On September 15, 1963, four members of the Ku Klux Klan planted a box of dynamite under the steps of the 16th Street Baptist church, near the basement. At about 10:22 a.m., twenty-six children were walking into the basement assembly room when the bomb exploded. Four girls, Addie Mae Collins (14), Denise McNair (11), Carole Robertson (14), and Cynthia Wesley (14), were killed in the attack. Twenty two additional people were injured.
Immediately following the attacks, the White House was overwhelmed with mail, telegrams and donations to 16th Street Church.Pictured:A political cartoon sent to JFK by cartoonist Don Hesse.-from the Kennedy Library
