As our nation continue to grapple with a sudden resurgence in white supremacy and hatred, a diabolical series of bomb threats has roiled a number of historically black colleges and universities.

The bizarre and seemingly coordinated action also came on the first day of Black History Month here in the United States, leading many to suggest that this was all a part of some racist plot.

New bomb threats targeted multiple historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) on Tuesday, with Howard University, Edward Waters University and Morgan State University saying they received threats of violence.

Howard gave an “all clear” notice at 7:30 a.m. ET, after the latest threat triggered a shelter-in-place order around 3 a.m.

Edward Waters University in Jacksonville, Fla., said it also received a threat early Tuesday morning.

“The vicious and racially motivated targeting of Florida’s first HBCU is extremely unsettling for our community,” university president A. Zachary Faison, Jr. tweeted. “Law enforcement is currently investigating this threat and your safety is our paramount concern.”

The threats came just a day after a number of similar incidents occurred on Monday.

Bomb threats were made against at least six HBCUs on Monday, forcing officials to order lockdowns and cancel classes. By early afternoon, many of them issued all-clear notices.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the FBI had gotten involved in the investigation, and was working with local authorities in an attempt to track down the perpetrators.
