Howard University in Washington D.C. has increased security due to a Twitter post from an anonymous user that threatened the lives of black students. The user posted that he left the University of Missouri “because he just couldn’t take it anymore” This past week the University of Missouri has been heavily protesting against racism.
The user goes on to say “So I’ve decided. Any n***ers left at Howard University after 10 tomorrow will be the first to go. Sure the po po will take me down, but I’ll got out a hero knowing I made the world better.” The University released a statement on their official twitter page to ensure the safety and wellness of the students.
