The incident involved an African American female student being shouted at from a passing car. In a press report released on Friday, April 24, students and members of the community were informed of this incident and asked to take action. President Leo Lambert urged Elon students and community members to take a stand regarding racial misbehavior. "Let me be as clear as possible: Our community will not tolerate acts of racism, which undermine and contradict our core values and cause fellow members of the community to feel unsafe and devalued as human beings," President Lambert wrote in his email. President Lambert is asking students and members of the community to take it upon themselves to make a change to their everyday lives and interactions. "Bias and bigotry are not unique to Elon-indeed racism seems to be part of an increasingly toxic environment in modern society" Lambert wrote. Members of the Black Student Union along with other student organizations are developing a plan aimed at attacking "the fundamental issues that are at the root of the racial incidents we have experienced." Police are asking for information that might help them in their investigation.
