“Today the college’s president revealed the person who created the note had admitted it was a hoax. From the Star Tribune:
“We learned from the author’s confession that the note was fabricated,” the president said. “It was apparently a strategy to draw attention to concerns about the campus climate.”
Anderson’s second e-mail implicated a student as the person responsible, pointing out that “federal privacy laws prohibit the college from disclosing the identity of the author of that note and disclosing the actions taken by the college now that we know the author’s identity.””
You can bet that if this was a hate crime the hater would be identified and charged. Why isn’t the hoaxer charged?
