As we reported earlier, University of Delaware President Nancy Targett was quick to call the fake nooses found on campus a “racist display” and a “hate crime.” Here’s the email she sent to students before any real facts were known on what was found, via Fusion:


And last night she called it a “hate crime” in a tweet:

It’s doubtful, however, we’ll hear anything close to apology for her rush to judgement. As a matter of fact, there’s a “campuswide gathering” scheduled for tonight to — well, we don’t really know what they’re gong to gather about. Maybe to celebrate there wasn’t a hate crime on campus?

Stand with President Targett to celebrate Delaware’s lack of racism!
