KKK Carved Trees
Officials at Warren Wilson College want to know who's carving their trees with hate. A second tree was found this past Sunday with the letters KKK carved into the bark.
The first tree was discovered a little over a week ago. Both trees are outside the Gladfelter Student Center. Students and faculty gathered last week to cover up the trees and hold a candle light vigil to raise awareness about the hatred connected to the KKK symbol. School officials have called it a hate crime and are now offering a reward to catch who's responsible.
Students feel upset about the KKK message at the small liberal arts college. Many we spoke with feel it's almost certainly a student since it's happened a second time. One student said, "it not only hurts me as an African American but it's also hurting everyone else."
