The Free Press of Mankato reports that St. Peter police are investigating what they’re calling a hate crime on the campus of Gustavus Adolphus College.

Police are releasing few details, but say someone spray-painted a racial slur and a student’s name on a campus sidewalk during Homecoming weekend, which was Sept. 28 and 29.

Glen D. Lloyd, the college’s assistant director for multicultural services, told The Free Press:

“We heard an outcry from our community that this isn’t us.”

Apparently the person who was targeted has posted this Facebook statement:

“I am the victim of the hate crime that happened here on our beautiful campus, and I want you all to know that I love you as individuals and Gustavus as a place. This event has dramatically hurt me and wounded me in a way that I never thought possible, but the people of this institution have helped me. … Now to the individual or group that perpetrated this crime against me. I want you to know that I love you for all of your faults. Even for all of the pain that you have caused me, I still recognize that you are a human being as well.”

    This sounds like another hate crime hoax perpetrated by another liberal student/activist.
