Harvard Law School Students Receive Racist Messages

Four students at Harvard Law School received racist text messages and emails. The messages were sent from a “burner” cell phone and perpetrators used an anonymous email account.

The messages included “we all hate u”, “you know you don’t belong here” and “you’re just here because of affirmative action.”

The Harvard Black Law Students Association, which believes the messages were sent by students at the law school, issued a statement saying the law school had not done enough to address the issue. In a statement, the group wrote that “the sender of this message remains unidentified and free to continue harassing Black and women students, meanwhile the targeted students have been left to continue fearing for their safety.”
