A student at Duke University came forward as the person responsible for hanging a noose on campus. Very little information was given about the unnamed undergraduate student at a Duke press conference Thursday night. But school officials stated the student was no longer on campus.
According to the Associated Press, the student will be subjected to Duke’s student conduct process and the school is working with state and federal officials about potential criminal violations.
The noose was discovered early Wednesday morning and images were posted on Twitter.
Duke’s President Richard Brodhead assured a crowd today that the situation is under investigation but it’s up to each individual to reject racism.
“One person put up that noose, but this is the multitude of people who got together to say that’s not the Duke we want,” Brodhead the crowd. “That’s not the Duke we’re here for, and that’s not the Duke we’re here to create.”
And the question remains, why wasn’t the student’s name release?
