There have been multiple horrific incidents of racism, and hate speech at American University. The most recent one being today May 1st, involving bananas hanging from nooses with the letters AKA on them, targeting a predominantly African American sorority. In a statement made by the Interim Vice President of Campus Life it stated that : The messages have no place in our community. The safety of our students is paramount."
If that is truly the case, then the students responsible for this must be found and held accountable for what they have done. If these students remain a part American University after these horrible actions, then it is clear that to American University the messages do have a place in the community.
