Black Student Sent Hate Mail


A black student has confessed to sending racist hate mail to three fellow students at her Christian college, apparently because she was unhappy and wanted to be pulled out of the school, police said Tuesday.

"The notes became her way to leave the school (Trinity International University) by implying it was not a safe campus," said Kevin Tracz, chief of police in Bannockburn, Illinois, in a statement.

The unidentified female student was charged with disorderly conduct and a hate crime, Tracz said.

The handwritten notes received last week by two black and one Latino student prompted the school to send about 100 of its 1,000 undergraduate students off campus to hotels or private homes for a night. Students returned to campus the following day.
