— State police are investigating the hanging of a noose at Kansas State University — another apparent racist attack on campus.

The Manhattan Mercury reports the university's Office of Institutional Equity was notified Friday that the noose was hanging from a tree near King Hall on the Manhattan campus. The department fosters inclusiveness and equal opportunity.

University spokesman Jeff Morris says he doesn't know what motivated the hanging of the noose.

The Kansas State Police Department has removed the noose.

An anti-Semitic sign was posted on campus in April during Holocaust Remembrance Day. University President Richard Myers said the school also found signs denouncing black people.

Kansas State University last year distanced itself from a photo tagged to the school's website showing two women in blackface, saying neither was enrolled as a student.

Some snowflake trying to raise awareness on campus by a false-flag hoax? They happen more often than you might think. https://www.wthr.com/article/police-brown-county-church-organist-admitted-to-november-vandalism
