RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - One student has been expelled and three others are being punished for their roles in a racially charged uproar the night of President Barack Obama's re-election on a Virginia college campus.

A school spokesman tells AP the four were found guilty by a student court of violating Hampden-Sydney College's code of conduct. They were among approximately 40 students who gathered outside the Minority Student Union on the night of Nov. 6.

Some shouted racial slurs, tossed bottles, set off fireworks and threatened physical violence.

The student who was expelled was found guilty of disruptive and lewd behavior and harassment. The others were found guilty of various violations.

2. court

I applaud the decision of the student court. These students showed more wisdom than many justices who have far more experience and who are supposedly far "wiser" than we commoners.

3. But what about the New Black Panther guy opening the door for voters in Philly?

Outrageous at how the MSM would ignore that and instead talk about college students just having a little fun in front of a student union building.

4. for those who aren't familiar with Hampden-Sydney...

It has low standards, high tuition and a thriving 'good ol' boy' network in the state. Just FYI.

5. Stephen Colbert went there too!

He transfered from the all male college to Northwestern University after one or two years.
