This is kind of really old news.
But it is shocking, apalling, and hilarious horrible.
What's worse: not having and expressing a diverse population, or pretending to?
Bizarre.

Maybe I have a browser prob;em but I dont see anything. Is this about the black guy digitally enhanced into the crowd of UW students? Didn't the Daily Show cover this as well?

That's cool. It was definitely funny, in that what-a-stupid-thing-to-do way.

And it inspired a hilarious Halloween costume I saw that year. I took a picture; I'll have to see if I can find it somewhere.

Anyway, here's a link to a story about it in the Journal Sentinel, back when it happened:

He is admittingly he makes me chuckle from time to time unlike his partner in dumb Trollerator who has never said anything of even comedic value.

Rest assured, there are still plenty who are incompetent at this sort of Photoshop work.

What's really funny is the student they chose to photoshop in was Diallo Shabazz, who was president of the Black Student Union at the time.
