"Eat the rich" graffiti

Hokay. So everyone knows I love graffiti, and stencil graffiti is definitely my favorite kind.

But this one's just annoying.

I definitely get the point this graffiti artist is trying to make, and it's a fine and somewhat valid one.

But what makes me hate this is its location. This is a walkway on campus where donors are recognized. These donors are usually alumni who got rich because of their education at Michigan State and decided to give back.

So basically, you are making a statement against people who donated to enhance your education.

How is this okay?

And also, even if the donation didn't have anything to do with you (which, as a presumed MSU student, it does), shouldn't you be more angry at rich people who don't give back?
