You think you're fearless? I'll show you fearless!

There was a cute story on NPR this morning about Oberlin College having a publicity campaign organized around the expression that their school was fearless.

Now, this is what fearless looks like.

Did they not know that fearless was appropriated as black gay slang, or did they have a black drag queen working at their advertising agency? Anyway, for a school that was a stop on the Underground Railroad, I would guess that calling Oberlin fearless is okay by me.
