First the big story as covered in the media:
White Racists Threaten To Kill All Blacks at Kean University:
Oh the horror.
The Department of Homeland Security and state, county and local law-enforcement officials were brought in to find the white racists.
The following day, the university police announced the campus would remain open.
“We are profoundly troubled by this display of hatred which does not reflect in any way the values we hold sacred on our diverse campus,” police wrote in a Facebook post.
Still, many students were so troubled by the threats that they stayed in their rooms the following day and refused to go to class, one student told WNBC-TV.
The news station reported there are now calls for the white Kean University President Dawood Farahi to resign from his position immediately. He should be replaced with a person of color.
It turns out that the hundreds of black activists protesting racial intolerance at New Jersey’s Kean University really do have someone to fear – but the distressing shooting and bomb threats aren’t coming from racist white people.
In a surprising twist, the vicious threats came from a sneaky agent inside their own ranks.
Kayla-Simone McKelvey, a 24-year-old black activist, Kean alumna and president of the Pan-African Student Union, slipped away from a Nov. 17 rally protesting racial intolerance and anonymously threatened to “shoot every black woman and man at Kean University.”
McKelvey entered the college library and used a computer there to quickly post the threats on Twitter, according to NJ.com.
When she finished making the posts, McKelvey hurried back to the rally to spread the terrible news: Violent threats were being made against black Kean students.
