Black Student Sent Hate Mail at Christian College
A black student has confessed to sending racist hate mail to three fellow students at her Christian college, apparently because she was unhappy and wanted to be pulled out of the school, police said Tuesday. “The notes became her way to leave the school (Trinity International University) by implying it was not a safe campus,” said Kevin Tracz, chief of police in Bannockburn, Illinois, in a statement. The unidentified female student was charged with disorderly conduct and a hate crime, Tracz said.
The handwritten notes received last week by two black and one Latino student prompted the school to send about 100 of its 1,000 undergraduate students off campus to hotels or private homes for a night. Students returned to campus the following day.
So, a note that implied it was not a safe campus was enough to spur the school to send ten percent of its undergraduates to spend the night off campus? And, if they thought it was that dangerous, why were they willing to risk the safety of the other 90 percent?!
At least Michelle Malkin will be happy.
Update (1854): Joe Carter answers my first question in the comments below. It also probably answers my second question: The ten percent, presumably, was the entirely of the black/threatened student population.
