First Jena Six, then a copycat incident at the University of Maryland. Now, an incident of racial bias strikes in New York City, the capital of diversity in the United States. Columbia University was the setting of the most recent racially biased incident when a noose was hung on the door of an African-American professor at Teacher's College in Harlem. The noose was discovered this morning, and the incident was reported to the NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force. And, just two weeks ago, graffiti was found on the stall of a bathroom in the International Affairs Building which said, "Attention You pinko Commie Motherfuckers and Arab Towelheads: America will wake up one day and Nuke Mecca, Medina, Tehran, Baghdad, Jakarta, and all the savages in Africa. You will all be fucked! America is for White Europeans."
Students are currently protesting on the surrounding blocks of the university's campus on 116th and Broadway, and Columbia's president Lee Bollinger will be meeting with the students later this afternoon. We will continue to do our part and keep you updated - do your part by staying informed.
