Gay Student Receives Death Threats


A gay student at Guilford College in Greensboro, N.C., received two threats against his life last week that cited his sexual orientation in a derogatory way.

The threats occurred on Monday and Thursday via two separate notes -- one taped to a dorm room door and the other dropped via rock through the student's window -- that used the same antigay slur, according to the video from the local Fox affiliate.

"You don't deserve life like the rest of the world," said the note delivered on Thursday. "It's bad enough with out all the gay crap pulling people down. It's sick, unnatural, and death is almost too good for you. Almost."

Many students were reportedly shocked to learn about the crime, and the college administration promised to hold the perpetrator(s) accountable. No suspects have been identified, and friends say the victim is doing well, all things considered.

The Guilford College gay pride organization plans a march on Wednesday in response to the incident.
