Students at American University were shocked when they saw bananas, with racist messages written on them, you hanging around campus with nooses… 

American University president Dr. Neil Kerwin has called this a “crude and racially insensitive act of bigotry.”

“Racially act of bigotry are done to instill fear and inflict pain in our community especially at stressful times at the end the term,” University President Neil kerwin said in a statement on Monday night.
“I regret this happened, apologize to everyone offended, and state emphatically that this incident does not reflect what American University truly is.”

“We must use this time to reflect on what we value as a community and we must show those in the community that bigotry, hate and racism cannot and will not be tolerated.”
