Do you remember earlier a few weeks back, when students at St. Olaf College in Minnesota presented the college’s president with a list of social-justice-flavored demands after a racist note was found on a student’s car?

More from The College Fix:
President David Anderson said in an email to students that an investigation into the note identified a person of interest “who confessed to writing the note.”
“We’ve confirmed that this was not a genuine threat. We’re confident that there is no ongoing threat from this incident to individuals or the community as a whole,” he said.
In a second campuswide email sent later Wednesday, Anderson used stronger words to explain what happened: “The reason I said in my earlier note that this was not a genuine threat is that we learned from the author’s confession that the note was fabricated. It was apparently a strategy to draw attention to concerns about the campus climate.”
Read the whole thing. Hope you had your shocked face handy.

Not likely, no. Also unlikely? That this hoax will be the last.
@CollegeFix Okay but the next one will definitely definitely not be a hoax.
