As if the constant barrage of white shaming isn’t bad enough, a new depth of depravity has struck an American college campus that should deal a major blow to the legitimacy of the Black Lives Matter movement.

A stick figure drawing was found on a dry erase board in a library at Salisbury University in Maryland that sent outrage throughout the campus. It was a very crude representation of someone being hung. Written next to the drawing was the N-word and a social media hashtag: #WhitePower.


The university began a swift investigation and discovered that it wasn’t some white supremacist faction on campus that was responsible, but was in fact drawn by black students. The names of these students are protected from going public by the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. The Wicomico County State’s Attorney’s Office has decided against filing criminal charges. It will be up to the university to bring any disciplinary actions against the students.

Dane Foust, the vice president of Student Affairs, said, “Regardless of who created the drawing, we find such actions demeaning to all members of the campus community and against our core values.”

University President Janet Dudley-Eshbach sent a letter to students and faculty that stated, “Diversity is a core value of SU, and reports of such acts are taken seriously. The university will not tolerate this kind of language or behavior.”

Nor should the white students at Salisbury. If this was a racist hate crime against anybody, it was against them. The majority white student population that makes up SU was targeted by these minority students to appear racist — the same minority group who constantly complains about the overabundance of systemic racism on campus. If that’s so, why did they have to invent some out of thin air?  And this is just one example that has been reported.

Imagine how many more hate crime hoaxes are happening throughout campuses in America.
