IMHO, origins are in both places, and an equal stain on both institutions.


My experience of Charlottesville started in the 60's and elitism, classism, and racism was thick in the air. Looking down the nose at VT was part of that larger tradition. You could feel it in Charlottesville schools - kids that were headed to UVa would lord it over kids that were headed to VT, as explicit bullying and as implicit superiority. They didn't make that up - it came from the parents, who often were UVa grads, or employees, or both. The campaign lives.
