Kean University president Dawood Farahi made the revelation earlier this week.
According to news reports:
Kayla-Simone McKelvey, 24, of Union, a former president of the university's Pan-African Student Union, was charged with third-degree creating a public false alarm.The school is located in Union, New Jersey.
The ongoing college crybaby movement should be consider a massive, Marxist hoax in which black students backed by their guilt-ridden, white-privileged supporters pretend to be victims of white racism in the esoteric forms of micro-aggressions.

Two weeks after Kean University was rocked by anonymously tweeted death threats against blacks on campus, school administrators on Dec. 1 brought students and faculty together to start a dialogue on racism, an issue roiling college campuses across the country.
The quickly organized conference - called Conversations on Civility & Acceptance - came the same day that acting Union County Prosecutor Grace Park announced that a black student and a recent graduate was charged with sending out the anonymous tweets.
Kayla-Simone McKelvey, 24, of Union, a former president of the university's Pan-African Student Union, was charged with third-degree creating a public false alarm.
Authorities allege McKelvey was among students in a protest over racial issues on the campus, but left the demonstration, going to a computer in a school library. She is alleged to have created an anonymous Twitter account and sent messages, including one saying, "I will shoot black students at Kean University."
McKelvey then allegedly returned to the protest and spread information about the threats, authorities said.
University president Dawood Farahi opened the Dec. 1 meeting with a statement lauding the diversity of the campus and the demonstrations of the students, but condemning the threats.
"We are saddened to learn that the person allegedly responsible was an active participant in the rally that took place on campus on Tuesday, Nov. 17 and is a former student of Kean," Farahi said. "We wholeheartedly respect and support activism, however, no cause, no cause or issue gives anyone the right to threaten the safety of others. These horrible tweets tried to tear us apart and tarnish our reputation, but they have failed."
More than 150 students attended the meeting and asked questions of a panel of speakers from the university community, including the directors of both the criminal justice department and the department of Africana studies.
At one point, student Kristal Noyan, the current president of the Pan-African Student Union and one of the panelists at the meeting, faced an accusation of being involved with McKelvey, which Noyan denied.
"I do not condone what happened," said Noyan, who participated in the Nov. 17 protest. She acknowledged knowing McKelvey, but said she did not know if McKelvey sent the tweets.
Students asked about the university's response to the threats and the decision to remain open. One student asked whether the school would have been closed if the threats had been about white students.
James Drylie, executive director of the School of Criminal Justice, said the tweets were examined and the threats were deemed not to be credible.
