The radical organizers behind a planned protest against student-loan debt next week are stepping back after the event was met with farfetched threats of racial violence.
The May 2 Strike Committee at Southern Illinois University Carbondale vehemently denied that it was behind a YouTube video -- apparently intended to frame a campus fraternity -- that repeatedly used the N-word and threatened to lynch black students at the protest.
In a response to the YouTube video, a black Twitter user posted a video in which he brandishes guns and promises to shoot any perceived racist who threatens him at the Monday protest.
Both SIUC police and Carbondale law enforcement are investigating the Twitter video, the Daily Egyptian reported Wednesday.
