FBI Warns Howard University of Online Threats

The Federal Bureau of Investigations and local authorities are reportedly investigating alleged death threats made against students at the oldest historically-black college, Howard University. A Thursday morning social media rant appeared on Twitter connecting Howard to race-related turmoil at the University of Missouri. The unidentified author wrote that any black people “left at Howard University after 10 tomorrow will be the first to go. … Sure the po po will take me down, but I’ll go out a hero knowing I made the world better.” Classes have not been canceled, but the school confirmed that it is functioning under elevated security.
