Clemson Student Arrested for Threatening to Lynch Black Classmates: 'Slave Auction Tomorrow'


21-year-old Jamie Reece Moore was arrested for threatening Black students who have been protesting at Clemson University over diversity issues.

He posted his threats on social media platform Yik Yak, according to news station WBTW.

Jamie was responsible for posting the following comments, among others.

  • “What time is the lynch mob tomorrow? I got a couple hundred feet of rope”
  • “Let’s do to the Clemson protesters what Ohio did to the Kent State student protesters 40 years ago”
  • “Drive by at Sikes?”
  • Slave auction tomorrow morning at 8am @ Sikes Hall. Lots of good protest workers. Get them while they’re mad!!!”
  • “So have they started lynching protesters yet?”

He’s currently free on bond.

Students have been protesting what the Associated Press referred to as a “quiet racial schism” on campus, with only 6 percent of the student body being Black in a state where a third of the population is Black.
