<American University’s campus is once again under a cloud of racial turmoil. Bananas marked with the letters “AKA,” a reference to the historically Black college sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha, were found hanging from nooses at three campus locations on Monday, NBC News Washington reports.

AU president, Neil Kerwin, released a statement describing what happened as a “crude and racially insensitive act of bigotry.”  He noted that the incident occurred after the first Black woman, AKA member Taylor Dumpson, was sworn in as the student government president.

He announced that an investigation by campus police and the D.C. Metro Police Department is underway, and vowed to do everything to find those responsible. In the meantime, Kerwin will hold a meeting on Tuesday to discuss the incident with the campus community.

In September 2016, a few hundred demonstrators rallied at the school’s campus in the District of Columbia to demand more action and less talk from the school’s administration to address alarming racist incidents. In one of the incidents, a Black female student discovered rotten bananas and obscene drawings on her dorm room door.

    Yes, Specialt757, it is quite tiring. Since they haven’t gotten all the “jobs” their president promised them, this is all they to do all the day long……!

    Pretty sure these dummies video tape their racist acts, just wait for it. Look on Facebook, IG, Twits, etc surely they are ignorant enough to post it there.
    Racists never seem to take a day off do they? smh.

  3. And it’s still in effect.and it’s a very sad situation.people fail to realize GOD will be the judge.All Martin Luther King did seems like a waste of time.But it’s actually not.This earthly world HAS so many caught up in wrongdoing failing to realize GOD controls everything,because all is His.The Holy Bible states:Hell is never full.meaning it’s enough to go AROUND.Psalms37:13 is enough for the righteous to KEEP Trusting God’s Word.The Prayers of the righteous availeth much,even when it seems all hope is gone,its actually not.I still see it being a young black woman. But GOD eyes behold this whole universe.
