A large number of news sources, including the supposedly conservative Fox News, were quick to report that “nooses” had been found at the University of Delaware.
Gerti Wilson, a senior, found three makeshift nooses and immediately started running toward a nearby residence hall.
“I’ve been called the n-word multiple times, she told The News Journal. “I’ve dealt with a lot of racial BS at this campus, but never, never in my wildest imagination did I think in my last year here… that in the middle of the night I would run up to a tree with three nooses hanging up there.”
Another student, Morgan Franklin, said she broke down in tears at the sight of the nooses and called the incident “sad and disheartening.” Franklin said it’s not the first time she’s felt unsafe on campus.
However, it turns out that the “nooses” were just strings used to hang paper lanterns at a previous campus event.
Once again, demonstrating that the MSM is desperately eager to report “racism” without the least amount of investigation.

“Mike Street Station” writes in the first comment, “On the plus side, at least it wasn’t another hoax.”
That’s a good point. It seems like in half of these campus “racism” stories, it turns out that the offensive objects were placed there by a member of the allegedly discriminated-against class trying to draw attention to the issue rather than by actual “racists.”
