Does anyone know the race of the perpetrator of the noose-hanging incident? I can't find that information anywhere. The police said the intent was to terrorize, but they also said it wasn't a "hate crime." The student was suspended, but she was not expelled. The race of the perpetrator should never be omitted from news accounts of this kind, since whether the incident resulted from hate or as a hoax is important for the public to know. I believe that many, perhaps most, incidents of this kind are hoaxes. Not real. I think the media presumes too much when they start yapping about racism.
