Cameron Crazies chose Blue over Green

Everyone is doing it, Going Green! Even the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo is going green.

Jan 31 was to be "Going Green" Day on Duke's Campus. The Cameron Crazies were going to participate by wearing specially made green t-shirts to the NC State vs Duke Basketball game.

As you can see it started out well but Duke wasn't playing well and was down by 9 at the break. The students had enough of going green and reacted.

Duke Blue was chosen over going green.

In the second half Duke responded and went on a fierce run winning the game, Duke 92 NC State 72.

After the game Coach Mike Krzyzewski said: “I understand the worldwide implications, but let’s get back to wearing blue.”

No comment was heard from Sam Hummel.

Political Correctness comes to what color you are wearing. What's next? Duke Students who don't wear the correct color to class will be mark dowm by Duke Professors?

I must admit, I enjoyed the entire spectacle. First I watched the Notre Dame game where it was "Camo Night." A night to honor the troops with mention of Coach Brey's involvement in Operation Hardwood IV.

Then came the Duke game where some seem to think the sea of green looks like a carryover from the ND game.

Funny how green brought to mind ND even though their colors are actually Blue and Gold.

I'm sure someone was well- intentioned but it seems to be a hallmark of the politically correct. Even when they might have a good idea, they manage to fail at whatever they are trying to do and look rather silly in the process.

I was disgusted that the Duke students were pressured into complying with the green propaganda. I was very proud of them when they shucked off the silly looking shirts and went back to being themselves. Uh oh! Individuals ( or Cameron Crazies) are not PC!!!! BTW, wonder how much energy was wasted making those silly looking shirts?

Environmentalists need to be careful to not waste natural resources fighting for their cause. But, naturally, this will not compute with them.

The Cameron Crazies handled this perfectly! Makes me proud to support Duke Students, not the fools running the campus.

All the shirts were given away, no one had to wear them. If one got there early enough, even the paying public could have gotten one.

I thought it was a great idea because when people watching tv saw these Duke students wearing green they would call them crazy. Just reinforcement of the "duke student attitude" in cameron. And yes I think all of us thought that Duke would be way up on state by the half. And being down by nine at the half called for drastic methods to resolve the dilemma. Toss the shirts, screw the green, we are blue....DUKE blue. Shoot, when I talked to the towel guy he agreed we need to get rid of the green and he was a fine example of how to do it.

Maybe next time the PC group will see the error of their ways and just go to green letters on a DUKE blue shirt.

The green shirts are part of the conspiracy. We need to know WHo, WHat,How, Where and When this happened. The people involved should be part of the civil suit.

What is the big shock here? The families have every right to sue the city for negligence of an entire political system that failed miserably! This is by far NOT the biggest case to be media worthy, but one that has brought to the light of day a sample of what people in power do every single day and nobody even knows or cares!

Well, I am here to tell the WORLD and every entity watching, that As God is my witness I will not go to my grave without speaking out about the same system that has not only covered over my beloved brother's murder, but have mocked us, threatened us, and continue to deny us the right to know not just how my brother died, but everything that was done and NOT done!

I have contacted EVERY person their is imaginable, excluding the President, and still have been denied not just documents, but the right of a family to know how their loved one met their death, and to know what was done, and not done to his body!

We have been lied to and threatened by the Durham Sheriff's Department, have been shuffled through 3 years and 3 District Attorneys, countless complaints filed to numerous governmental agencies, even our own Congressman Dennis Kucinich, and STILL NOTHING!

We have sent our documents that we have been able to glean from the system to Mr Ekstrand, but due to his obligation to the LAX team is unable to represent us but would if he could! I have sent him, the FBI, and several others copies of the BLUE blood coming from an entrance wound, none from 2 exits wounds, a inconclusive and actually negative GSR screen, proof of fraud and collaborative deception, and have been to hell and back in this maddening chase to expose this city and system for allowing crimes against humanity to go unannounced, while innocent people suffer from the hands of the very powers who took oaths before God and man to protect and serve!

So, here my family and I are coming forward to beg the media to help us to solve my brother's death, and expose a system of debauchery and evils that not only baffle the mind, but leaves you breathless and speechless! I have tried and done all that I can alone, and now have 2 months before the state can be held liable for not just one mans death, but expose a system that feeds off the helpless, then leaves them for dead!

So, in closing I will say the purpose of this letter now on this thread is to also gain attention to the enumerable failures within the system, to right a countless injustice done to a plethora of lives that have been left completely devastated, and to make our government be held responsible and accountable for FAILING us the citizens, and the dead who have no voice but scream beyond their graves! The truth is worse than a nightmare because it is REAL and more HORRIFIC than you could ever have imagined!

Never could I have guessed such wickedness by not just individuals, but extremely organized and calculated, and failed by the very country and leaders we so blindly put our hopes and faith into! My heart bleeds for the truth, and mourns those who have been so wickedly tortured! My brother and countless others did NOT die in vain, and I will be damned if I will let fear keep me from Justice For Jack, but JUSTICE For ALL!
