“F*** you n*****,” says the one sentence e-mail with the subject line: “Jiggaboo.”

According to The Setonian, the official undergraduate newspaper of Seton Hall University, an e-mail was sent on Sept. 25th to Seton Hall’s African Student Association (ASA).

The e-mail was read by Yaa Opoku-Mensah, the president of the ASA.

“I think that in the climate of a divisive nation that the current administration is fostering, people feel threatened when inclusion is initiated in the slightest,” Opoku-Mensah wrote in an email. “When people try to label others with derogatory verbiage, it is purposely to bring others down.”

It is believed by the University’s “Student Services,” that the message was written using the hacked e-mail service of a Seton Hall student. Google provided an alert of the location of the sender; North Bergen.

According to South Orange Police Department if the suspect is caught, they could expect “minimal charges”.
