Some students in American University have, for the second time this year, voiced their opinion on students of different ethnicities. The students have hung bananas from nooses to show what they think of the new black female class president.

They hung these bananas just outside of the Alpha Kappa Alpha campus and put the words “AKA FREE” and “HARAMBE BAIT” on the bananas.

A similar act was committed back in September when rotten bananas were thrown at African American students, and a banana was left on the doorstep of another.

The university president, Neil Kerwin, said at American University “I regret this happened, apologize to everyone offended, and state emphatically that this incident does not reflect what American University truly is,[…]While this incident targeted AU’s chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority … and occurred after the first black woman and AKA member was sworn in as the Student Government president—our entire university community has been adversely affected by this cowardly, despicable act.”

American University has been trying to find the suspects, and expel them from the campus. There is a 1,000$ reward for anyone who finds the suspects.
