In April, a black student from St. Olaf College in Minnesota effectively got her entire school shut down by claiming to have found a racist note on the windshield of her car. However, after a thorough investigation later, the truth has finally come out about the alleged hate crime.
Sociology and Anthropology major Samantha Wells claimed to have found a typewritten note on the windshield of her car which read, “I’m so glad that you are leaving. One less n—– that this school has to deal with. You have spoken up too much. You will change nothing. Shut up or I will shut you up.”
“I’ve already broken down a few times, [I was] just so overwhelmed,” Wells told FOX9. “I’ve definitely been a lot more aware of my surroundings everywhere I go.”
The note sparked widespread protests on campus. Large numbers of students and faculty held a sit-in in the student commons and their leaders interrupted a college forum to present their demands to the administration.
In response to the outrage and threats of boycotting class, St. Olaf canceled classes last Monday “so that we may have time for faculty, students, and staff to continue the discussions about racism and diversity on our campus.” The administration also contacted the FBI and local police.

“Our students are upset. There’s reason for them to be upset, what’s going on is very frightening,” Dean of Students Roselyn Eaton said at the time. “It’s hurtful to our students, therefore, it’s hurtful to us.”
Shutting down the caf during dinner to packing the Commons with thousands of students, faculty, staff, and allies. The St. Olaf students of color are some of the most courageous, powerful, and incredible people I’ve ever experienced. Think racists can get away with hate crime and any slurs here? Ask the students: think again.
Well, Eaton and her colleagues will be happy to know that they can all calm down now because it turns out the note Wells “found” on her vehicle was a fake.
“[We] learned from the author’s confession that the note was fabricated,” St. Olaf College President David R. Anderson wrote in an email to students this week. “It was apparently a strategy to draw attention to concerns about the campus climate.”
Exactly what Anderson meant by the “campus climate” is unclear, but of the 3,000 students enrolled at St. Olaf, only 63 identify as African-American, or approximately 2 percent. Apparently, the “whiteness” of the school is a big problem. Such a big problem, in fact, that the black students have to invent incidents of racism.
According to College Fix, Wells wrote on Facebook Wednesday that “it looks like something made its way back to me in the investigation.” Don’t you just hate it when that happens? “I will be saying it was a hoax,” Wells added in the post, which has since been deleted. “I don’t care. There is nothing more that I can do. I just wanted to give y’all the heads up.”
Here’s a bit of food for thought for the incessant race-baiters and fragile snowflakes of the world: Perhaps, if you’re having to create hate crimes out of thin air, racism isn’t quite as prevalent as the media and the left are telling you. If it were, you wouldn’t have to fake anything, as there’d always be a fresh supply of discriminatory offenses being committed against you. But, there isn’t.
It’s 2017. There aren’t any privileges enjoyed by whites and not by blacks. In fact, thanks to affirmative action, you are now more likely to get what you haven’t earned if you are black than if you are white.
Meanwhile, Harvard University will be holding its first ever black-only graduation ceremony. That’s right, the blacks have officially segregated themselves, effectively creating another instance of racism where there was none before.
Harvard University will host a graduation ceremony exclusively for black students, organisers have announced. More than 170 students and 530 guests have signed up to attend the event, which will be held 23 May. All-black ceremonies have been held at other US universities, such as Stanford and Columbia, but this will be a historic first for Harvard. [Source: Independent]
Consider, just for a moment, the firestorm which would inevitably ensue if students were to hold a white-only graduation ceremony or if a white student faked a hate crime to get class canceled. The media would have a field day. They’d be all over it. But, have you seen this story on CNN or MSNBC? I didn’t think so. I guess it doesn’t fit their narrative to expose black people when they lie or do dumb things that take us back decades, like hold a segregated graduation.
As the push for progressivism intensifies, we are simultaneously regressing as a society. One is led to wonder when the left will be satisfied. What’s it going to take? I almost don’t want to know the answer to that question.
