Racists Are Making Their Presence Widely Known Throughout the US

Just in case people were under the illusion that all of the racists in America were in the South,  hate-mongers are making their presence felt in other locations.   This is America since Jena.

Noose found at Teachers College in NYC - Yahoo! News

NEW YORK - A black professor discovered a hangman's noose on her office door at Teachers College at Columbia University on Tuesday, and police said they were investigating the case as a possible hate crime.

Teachers College President Susan H. Fuhrman sent an e-mail to the college's 5,000 students and 150 faculty members explaining why police were on campus.

"The Teachers College community and I deplore this hateful act, which violates every Teachers College and societal norm," the statement said.

The school has not identified the professor but students said she teaches a class on racial justice.

"It's really really disturbing," student Mary Owens said. "These racist practices have been in place for so long, and they really have to be rooted out by everyone."
