Black Students Fear Killer

African-American students at Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio are on alert after a message was found written on a bathroom wall that black students would be killed on Feb. 2. "I don't feel too safe walking by the woods," one student at the rural campus told the Associated Press. About 400 of the school's 6,300 students are black. The college is providing temporary housing for students who are afraid to stay in the dorm where the threats were discovered. Some students dismissed the threat. "It was just some person being ignorant," one said.
