Fordham Univ. students outraged after alleged hate crime
Students at Fordham University rallied today against the way their school handled what they call a hate crime on campus involving a racial slur.
According to an article in the newspaper the Fordham Student Journal, on Feb. 7, an African-American residential advisor was greeted at her dorm room with the N-word written in permanent marker across her door.
Ten days later, the university sent a letter to students notifying them about the incident. Some of the students were infuriated, saying that the school should be doing more.
As a result, a group of students started a petition demanding that Fordham redesign its racial slur protocol and issue an apology for the delayed response to the incident.
The university says this is an isolated incident, and school officials are looking into it.
