That photo from the Charlottesville march of a man wearing an Arkansas engineering T-shirt?

Regrettably, it led many searching for his identity to conclude he was a faculty member at the University of Arkansas. He is not. And he's been busy on Twitter saying so and emphasizing his belief in diversity on the UA campus. He was in Fayetteville Friday. The UA official Twitter account confirmed the faculty member was misidentified as a participant.

Also suspected by others as the marcher is a well-known white supremacist in Arkansas, but he says he was in Arkansas. Not that he took issue with the marchers.

Perhaps the marcher will step forward. And, we could hope, say he got the T-shirt at a thrift shop in Alabama.
