And the sun goes away

According to an e-mail from Teachers College President Susan Fuhrman dated 3:35 PM today (and now WNBC), a hangman’s noose was found on the office door of an African American faculty member. Her full message is reprinted after the jump.
A meeting started at 9:00 PM in Earl Hall for student reactions, and tomorrow (Wednesday) President Fuhrman will hold an open meeting for students, staff, and faculty at 3:30 PM in Grace Dodge Cafeteria at Teachers College.
To the TC Community:
The police were here this morning because a hangman’s noose was
discovered on the office door of one of our African American faculty
members. The incident has been reported to the New York City Police
Department (Detectives Bureau of Manhattan) and is under active
investigation by the Hate Crimes Task Force.
The TC community and I deplore this hateful act, which violates every
Teachers College and societal norm.
