Dad: Leader of student group wasn't brought up that way

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Before Thursday's arrests, Nathaniel Snow had told his father white racists were responsible for the anti-black messages at Miami University's Center for Black Culture and Learning.

        Contacted at his College Hill home Thursday night, Ralph Snow said his son never indicated he was involved in the Oct. 30 posting of racist and anti-gay fliers at the center. Nathaniel Snow and Brad Allen, both black Miami students, were arrested Thursday for their alleged involvement in the incident.

        “He figured it was some whites or the KKK or some hate group,” Ralph Snow said. “He wanted to bring the news people in to investi gate.”

        Mr. Snow learned from an Enquirer reporter that his son had withdrawn from school. He said he was “shocked” by the allegations.

        “Wow, I hate to hear this,” he said.

        His son had never been in trouble before and had always received good grades, he said.

        “He wasn't brought up to try and start something,” he said. “It doesn't seem like he'd do something like that.”

        After Nathaniel was asked to provide fingerprints to authorities, Mr. Snow said, his son worried he would be framed for the incident.
