An LGBT student group at Boston College Law School got a hateful message on this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, even as President Obama was delivering the most inclusive inauguration speech in history.
Above the Law posted a photo of the vandalism left behind after someone scrawled a series of vile words across the walls of the Lambda Law Students Association. The school's dean quickly condemned the graffiti as "cowardly," with Dean Vincent Rougeau telling Above the Law that it "runs counter to everything we stand for as a law school."
One of the targeted group's leaders told Above the Law that it is looking for ways to counteract the hate, perhaps by using the words as a backdrop for posting articles, pictures and quotes from the the LGBT rights movement as a statement "to show where we have come from and yet how far we still have to go."
