The president of Howard University announced Thursday increased security on campus and nearby metro stations after a racist death threat was posted on an online forum:
“I left MU yesterday because I didn’t want to put up with it anymore,” the commenter wrote. “I go home to MD and what do I see? The same old shit. Turn on the news and it’s always n****rs causing trouble everywhere. So I’ve decided. Any n****rs left at Howard University after 10 tomorrow will be the first to go,” the message continued. “And any of those cheapstake [SIC] n****rs who try to get out using the metro will regret that choice real fast. … After all, it’s not murder if they’re black.”
Yup, just another day in post-racial America.
