Northwestern University students marched Thursday to protest acts of racial mistreatment on campus, saying the tipping point was the mistreatment of Michael Collins, a university employee, who alleges he found a stuffed black bear hanging from a noose at his desk, Evanston Review reported.
Several hundred students turned out at the protest and charged that there have been seven major racial events on campus among them, a party held by white students with racist costumes and two Asian-American women who were harassed by racial slurs, Evanston Review.
