We are saddened, concerned, and angered by recent racially-motivated incidents at the University of Maryland, including white supremacist flyers distributed around campus, a noose found hanging in a fraternity house, and the senseless murder of Richard W. Collins III from Bowie State University.  We recognize that these are not isolated incidents, but instead the result of pervasive racism.
