A University of Delaware student reported finding three “nooses” hanging from a tree Tuesday evening in front of a building on campus, one day after Black Lives Matter activists staged a protest.
Acting President Nancy M. Targett got on Twitter and announced that campus police were “investigating” the “hate crime.” She added, “We need to stand together against intolerance.”
She went further on the UD Facebook page, saying: “We are both saddened and disturbed that this deplorable act has taken place on our campus. This hateful display stands in stark contrast to Monday night’s peaceful protest and discussion. We condemn this despicable action and ask everyone in our community to stand together against intolerance and hate.”
