Saint Olaf College had a massive problem with a “hate note” and spent a day or two in chaos. Care to venture a guess on the outcome?
A note that used the n-word and threatened a black female student at St. Olaf College — sparking an intense protest that led to classes being shut down for a day as student demonstrators accused the school of institutional racism — “was not a genuine threat,” the school’s president said Wednesday.
President David Anderson said in an email to students that an investigation into the note identified a person of interest “who confessed to writing the note.”
“We’ve confirmed that this was not a genuine threat. We’re confident that there is no ongoing threat from this incident to individuals or the community as a whole,” he said.
This is his hysterical. It’s also very typical.
